Classic pumpkin pie


So it wouldn’t be fall without pumpkin pie and I couldn’t wait till Thanksgiving to try out a gluten free (GF) version of this traditional pie! I made some minor tweaks to the classic Libby’s Pumpkin Pie recipe (the one on the back of the cans) and it turned out great! First, I substituted a gluten free (GF) crust and second, I used coconut palm sugar (1:1 ratio to regular white sugar) since that’s what I had in the house. The pie was a little darker in color, but it was EXCELLENT!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar (I used coconut palm sugar – which has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar cane sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz) 100% pure pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 unbaked 9″ deep-dish pie shell (I used a gluten free pie crust from Wholly Wholesome)

Directions

  • Mix sugar, salt, spices in a small bowl
  • Beat eggs in a large bowl and stir in pumpkin and sugar/spice mixture
  • Gradually stir in evaporated milk
  • Pour into pie shell
  • Bake in preheated 425* oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350* and bake 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean
  • Cool n wire rack for 2 hours.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate
  • Top with whipped cream! 🙂

Super mom tip: Don’t keep that many spices stocked? Save a step and use 1 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon/ginger/cloves.
