Pumpkin Pie

Now that autumn is well and truly upon us and pumpkins are in season, it seems everywhere I turn there are a variety of pumpkins and pumpkin related paraphernalia. So I thought it was time to whip out an old favourite – pumpkin pie! This recipe is gluten free, refined sugar free and most of all delicious and easy!
