Pumpkin Empanadas

okay, Serious Eats, i need your advice! :) i recently did the whole buy-eviscerate-eat whole pumpkin thing. i have been eating the pumpkin sauteed with cauliflower, garlic, red pepper flakes, tahini, feta, and lemon juice and it's so good. but i've barely made a dent in the massive amount of pumpkin, so i was thinking of making pumpkin empanadas.

my question is, do i need to puree/drain my pumpkin? or can i just mix the roasted chunks with brown sugar, etc. and fold them up in pie dough? i'm worried it will give off too much water.

also, could i make these up and freeze them (cooked or uncooked)?

thanks!
