    Re: pumpkin pie recipe

    I can't have dairy or gluten so I'm using coconut milk instead of evaporated and a coconut crust (butter and coconut pressed into pie tin, baked for 15ish minutes at 325. I also leave out the brandy.

    You can also crush ginger snaps and mix with fat free spread and push into a pie tin, too. That makes a nice crust.
