While you can make your own pumpkin pure, most of us turn to the canned variety at least a few times during this season. It seems that inevitably there's always a little left over. Here are some ideas for using up that last half cup, or less, of pumpkin pure.

1. Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Lattes

That leftover half-cup of pumpkin pure can be used to whip up a batch of pumpkin spice lattes that rival your local coffee shop's version. Bonus: The slow cooker does all the work for you.

2. Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin pure adds an autumnal twist to these classic oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

3. Wholesome Halloween Granola

4. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

5. Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies Treats
