Summary: Pumpkin Pie is the perfect pudding to serve at Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas. And just because you or your loved one is gluten free doesn't mean you can't have this most celebrated American dessert.
This easy recipe shows you how to make your own gluten-free sweet shortcrust pastry and pumpkin puree, to make perhaps the best pumpkin pie in the world. Personally, I can't say what I like the most : the amazingly crumbly nutty sweet pastry or the spicy and mellow pumpkin pudding. Both.
Be generous with the spices, and as always when making gluten-free pastry, be as gentle as possible while rolling and handling it, as it is very delicate.
I like to use this combination of rice, maize and chestnut flours for my gluten-free pastry, but you could use a different combination of gluten-free flours. The chestnut adds a touch of Autumn deliciousness, and goes wonderfully well with the cinnamon.
