Gluten Free Double-Pumpkin Pie

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

A crunchy sunflower seed, pumpkin seed and almond crust provides a hearty base for the rich and creamy pumpkin custard filling. You'll never miss the gluten or the doughy pastry! This is equally delicious frozen - one of my friends prefers it that way!
