This time of the year is probably the only time that my husband and I bake. We love to cook but usually leave the baking to the experts. I think it’s because the ingredient amounts need to be more precise, whereas with cooking we do a little dash of this and a smidgen of that (obviously no definite measurements) and the dish comes out great! Unfortunately, that has never happened to us with baking.
One year my husband decided he was going to make a cheesecake for Thanksgiving, which caught me by surprise. Our only bump in the road was that I am gluten sensitive, so we searched for a pie crust, and viola – we started baking!
It came out delicious and is now a staple every year. You can always replace the gluten-free pie crust with any type of pie crust too!
Here’s what you will need:
- 16 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup gluten free flour
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 15 oz pureed pumpkin
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Gluten-free pie crust – you can make your own or purchase a ready-made pie crust, such as the Mi-Del one we used. I found it at Fresh Market, but I am sure you can find it at other supermarkets.

This is the only time of year I really bake so I’m with you there! I’m a big peach cobbler fan and I also really like cakes and brownies. I made Nutella brownies last night that were DELICIOUS!
Happy New Year,
Allison – Nutella brownies sounds insanely delicious!!!!

A gluten free cakes sounds like something else. Makes me wonder how it taste like. By the looks of it; it must be pretty good.
I like to bake at this time of year too. We don’t see so much pumpkin pie here in the UK but I always like to try it when I’m in the USA. So I’ll be giving this recipe a try.
Angela, do you have canned pumpkin? That works best, in my opinion!
We found some pre-made gluten-free crusts at our local market this past weekend. We’re going to make some pies for sure with this.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of the recipe!
I am so glad I found this GF recipe! My aunt is GF and has been asking for a good dessert that is pumpkin based. Will make ASAP!
This sounds delicious! My favorite is cherry pie x

This is very impressive. It looks so yummy and very healthy! I am a really fan of Cheese. This is perfect in a cup of coffee.
I don’t know much about gluten and gluten allergy but this recipe looks good, so good I have to consider making one before this month ends.
I can’t get enough of pumpkin recipes..! This one looks so yummy..! I will definitely try it this week.
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
This sounds really good! I can’t wait to try it.

That sounds so great..! Yum..! It looks so moist and soft. I’m sure my family will love this.
It was a hit with our family – even the littles liked it (and they are super picky)!
I will be honest I am not the biggest pumpkin fan. I do have a weakness for cheesecake so maybe like this I can be more open minded.
I can imagine the taste already… Ugh… So creamy and moist and soft.. Can’t wait to try this.
It is super creamy and you’d never know it was gluten-free!
