Easy Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe

First, this pumpkin pie recipe is super easy to whip up. The walnut crust is made in a food processor then chilled. You don’t have to roll out the dough – I love that, no mess, and it’s super easy.

Recipe steps:

STEP ONE: THE WALNUT CRUST: Once the walnut mixture for the crust has chilled, press it into the pie dish and pre-bake for a few minutes. 

STEP TWO: THE PUMPKIN FILLING: The silky filling is made with pumpkin puree, cream, eggs, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and vanilla. Once the crust has cooled, pour the filling into the crust and bake. Easy — right?
