Creamy pumpkin pie filling is right at home in this date-sweetened, gluten-free crust.
Ingredients: 
  • Crust
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour, plus extra for pressing out the crust
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/4 cup no-salt-added cashew butter
  • Filling
  • 3/4 cup pitted dates, soaked in warm water for 10 minutes to soften
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin purée
  • 2 tablespoons no-salt-added cashew butter
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plain almondmilk
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
Method: 
To make the crust, preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 9-inch pie pan or springform pan with parchment paper. Place flour, dates and pecans in a food processor, and pulse until crumbly. Add cashew butter and purée. Drizzle in water (a little more than 1 tablespoon) until mixture comes together in a ball. Press evenly into the bottom and up the edges of the prepared pan, using extra flour if dough is sticky. Bake crust until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Cool crust completely.

To make the filling, lower the oven temperature to 350°F. Drain dates from soaking liquid and squeeze out any excess water. Place in the food processor. Add pumpkin purée, cashew butter, almondmilk, nutmeg and flaxseed meal. Purée until well combined and creamy. Pour mixture into crust. Bake until filling browns slightly and is set completely along the edges, about 45 minutes. Cool on a rack for at least 2 hours before slicing.
