Gluten Free Mini Pumpkin Pie Recipe- One of my very favorite things about Fall is enjoying pumpkin pie, but now that my daughter has to eat gluten free, I don’t want her to miss out on the fun.

This year we made gluten free mini pumpkin pies in a muffin tin and they were just perfect. These would also make super cute gifts!

Here’s the recipe if you want to try it for yourself:

      Thanks Jerri! :)

    Do you think this would work with regular flour too? I’d like to make a mix of gluten-free and regular flour ones. I could probably just find a different recipe for the regular ones.

      Hi Heidi! I would just use a recipe for regular pie crust for the non-gluten free ones and use this filling recipe. If your guests have Celiac Disease, be very careful not to cross contaminate your gluten free items (use separate clean dishes and utensils, clean your counters well, etc.). Sounds like a fun Thanksgiving at your house!
