Pumpkin cookies with chocolate chips are the best!  I couldn't find a recipe here, but they do have a pumpkin muffin recipe with chocolate chips that looks good.

Have you tried adding walnuts,almonds, or pecans. Any nuts you like try adding them. Marshmellows on top.

I just came across a recipe I am going to try this weekend.  You have to like gingerbread though.
Pumpkin Gingerbread Pie
1 Cup canned pumpkin
1/3 Cup sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 Cup half and half or light cream--I may try carnation evaporated milk here, always works for my pies..
1 package, 14.5 ounce gingerbread mix
Whipped cream, optional
Pre heat oven to 350.  Coat a 10 inch deep pie plate or an 8X8 baking dish with non stick spray.
In a small mixing bowl combine pumpkin, sugar, pie spice and egg.  Beat lightly until combined.  Gradually stir in half and half.
Prepare gingerbread mix according to directions.  Pour batter into prepared pan.  Lightly spoon pumpkin mixture over gingerbread batter; swirl gently using a knife.
Bake for 50 minutes for pie plate or 60 minutes for baking dish, or until a toothpick inserted into gingerbread portion comes out clean. 
Cool slightly.  Serve warm or at room temperature. With a dollop of whipped cream.

Got this recipe for these bars years ago from an oatmeal promotion... they go over big and are really tasty and are great with vanilla ice cream.


Pumpkin Eater's Bars

Crumb Crust:

1 1/2 c. oatmeal (quick or old-fashioned)
1 1/4 c. flour
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. chopped nuts
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
3/4 c. butter or margarine

Filling:
one  15-16 oz. can pumpkin
2/3 c. milk
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbl. pumpkin pie spice

For Crust:  Combine  first six ingredients, add butter, beat at low speed on electric mixer til mixture is crumbly.
Reserve 1 1/2 c. crumbs, press remaining into greased 9x13" pan.  Bake in preheated oven (375 degrees) about 10 min.

For Filling:  Beat together all ingredients, mix well.  Spread over partially baked crust, sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over pumpkin mixture.  Continue baking for 25 min.. Cool.. Chill.. Cut into bars

To freeze:  Wrap securely: store in freezer 2-3 months.  Thaw, wrapped at room temp. 2-3 hours.

Can use greased jelly-roll pan instead of 9x13... bake for approx. 20 minutes.

These are so good and make a great dessert.  Hope you like these, we sure do..

That bit of pumpkin should freeze well but try this...
Take the pumpkin, add a bit of sugar and some pumpkin pie spice.  Cook down until it is real thick.  Use as a spread on toast. 
Or
Add the pumpkin to a bit of Greek yogurt as a healthy snack or the start of a smoothie.  It can be used as a dip for fruit as well if you want it a bit sweeter add some sugar or honey.
Or
Add it to a hot cup of coffee and whiz it up in the blender with some milk and sugar for a pumpkin late. (That will be $4.95 please)

Stock up in a few days.  Places like Walmart will clear it out.  I got some the year before last  for something like 25 cents a can.  So I had plenty for last year and a bit left for this year.
