18 Nov Gluten Free, Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is the ultimate traditional Thanksgiving dessert. By now, you all know that I am crazy for pumpkin. I was so excited to create a pumpkin pie recipe that my entire family could enjoy. The pie filling is naturally sweetened and doesn’t have any dairy products. I used a gluten free pie crust that doesn’t contain any eggs! The coconut oil used in the crust makes it extra flaky. The crust holds well together. This Gluten Free, Vegan Pumpkin Pie is delicious and is the perfect dessert to serve for anyone with special diet restrictions. Don’t deprive yourself of a delicious Thanksgiving dessert. 

 I steamed my own pumpkin in my Instant Pot and purred it in my Vitamix Blender. The Instant Pot saved SO much time!I rolled out the pie crust and trimmed off the excess dough with my kitchen scissors. This gave it a nice, clean edge.Then, I used a spoon to decorated the edges.  Filled the pie with pumpkin puree and cooked for 10 minutes at 450 and then 60 minutes at 350. I put a pie crust protector around the edges after 30 minutes to keep the crust from burning. Aluminum foil also works great. Let pie cool and serve!

Notes
Any pie crust recipe will work. This is one I like that is gluten free, dairy free, and vegan.
I used the following flour blend: 1¼ c. bean flour or coconut flour, 1 c. brown rice flour, 1 c. potato starch, and 1 c. tapioca starch.
The pie crust does not have to be refrigerated, but it does help to have the pie crust chilled when rolling it out.
Pumpkin puree can be canned or homemade.
To save time, make pie crust ahead of time. Crust can be refrigerated overnight.
Pumpkin pie can also be made the day before and be stored in the refrigerator.
