DIRECTIONS

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove pumpkin stem. Cut pumpkin in half from top to bottom. Scoop out seeds and discard (or save to make your own roasted pumpkin seeds).

2.Roast about 40 minutes, or until skin is soft and flesh is very tender when pierced with a fork. Cool completely on wire rack.

3.Scoop flesh from skin and transfer to food processor. Process about 3 to 5 minutes, gradually adding water and scraping sides as needed, until smooth. Add cinnamon; pulse until well blended.
