Smell the crispness that’s settling in the air? October has (finally!) begun, and that means it’s time for one of my personal favorite autumn classics: pumpkin pie!

This treat can be found everywhere this time of year, but when someone in your family needs to maintain a gluten-free diet, you can use this easy and delicious recipe to keep the fall food tradition going strong!

5. Bake in the oven until lightly browned (about 10 minutes). Cool completely when done.
