A gluten free pumpkin pie recipe with a traditional filling. The use of both granulated sugar and brown sugar create a caramelized flavor that is hard to resist. Top it with homemade whipped cream or a gluten free ready-made brand such as Cabot. For a dairy-free topping, try the crunchy praline topping. The crust tastes amazing, as well, and is fairly easy to handle and roll.

    1. Ashely,

      You can absolutely blind bake the crust. An uncooked custard filling always benefits from a parbaked crust. I actually like a soft crust. So, I don’t bake mine unless I’m having guests. However, I was addressing this issue somewhat by baking it a higher temperature.

      You may also enjoy this crust recipe which is more sturdier and is blindbaked – .
