Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie

Creamy, perfectly balanced and super easy to make!

Pumpkin Pie is such an iconic Thanksgiving dessert and this gluten-free version, recipe from my Grandmother amaaazing!

So who else loves pumpkin pie?

Over the years, I’ve learned that you either love it or you don’t.

My youngest son and I happen to love it!

So there’s always a gluten-free Pumpkin Pie at our Thanksgiving table.

This pie recipe is from my Grandmother, made with a gluten-free pie crust obviously.

My Grandmother always wrote her recipes on recipe cards for me and I love this one so much!

It’s super easy to make (especially if you use a pre-made pie crust) and really YUMMY!

And in recent years, I’ve adapted it to be dairy free using coconut milk and I love it! So the recipe provides both options.

The pie filling is made with just 9 ingredients.

You’ll need canned pumpkin (pure pumpkin puree), eggs, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, milk or coconut milk, and evaporated milk or evaporated coconut milk or canned coconut milk.

We’ve been making it gluten-free for years but just using a gluten-free pie crust.

Sometimes I purchase a pre-made pie crust– there are so many great options these days!

The Whole Foods gluten-free pie crust and the Wholly Gluten-Free are two we can find easily and us often.

For the one in this photo, I made the pie crust using GFJules flour – affliate link & recipe.

This was only my 3rd time making a homemade pie crust and I think I’m finally getting hang of it.

My kitchen was a bit of a mess but it is so worth it if you love the taste of pie crust!

That said, my son doesn’t really care about the pie crust so I’ve been using pre-made ones recently.

Either way, it’s a favorite of ours!

Hope you love it as much as we do!

Other Thanksgiving favorites include Apple Crisp (so much easier than making a pie!), Pecan Pie (a super easy and yummy classic), Pumpkin Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (the quickest and easiest dessert to feed crowd) and Blueberry Crumble (not traditional but my husband’s favorite!).
