What Is The Difference Between Canned Pumpkin And Pumpkin Pie Filling?
All of my gluten-free pumpkin recipes use canned pumpkin. Canned pumpkin is cooked and pureed pumpkin is unsweetened and does not have spice added to it.
Pumpkin pie filling is cooked and pureed pumpkin is sweetened and has added spices like cinnamon, ginger, and allspice.
Remember to always check the labels to confirm that the canned pumpkin is gluten-free.
Pumpkin spice is key to the best gluten-free pumpkin dessert recipes. I buy pumpkin pie spice in the spice aisle of my grocery store.
If you want to make your own pumpkin pie spice, it is super easy. Check out this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice from All Recipes.
All of my gluten-free pumpkin recipes were developed with Pillsbury gluten-free flour. It is an all-purpose cup for cup rice flour blend.
A cup for cup or 1 for 1 gluten-free flour includes starches and xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is important to gluten-free baking and cooking because it mimics the elasticity of traditional wheat flour.
I like Pillsbury gluten-free flour. Not all gluten-free flours are created equal. You may experience different results depending on the gluten-free flour blend you choose.
Tip For Measuring Gluten-Free Flour
The best way to measure gluten-free flour is the “spoon & level” method. Do not scoop the flour directly out of the bag with your measuring cup or you could get more flour than the recipe calls for.
Use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup. After you have spooned the flour into the measuring cup, use the back of a knife to level off the top of the measuring cup.
For the dairy-free options to my recipes I used Smart Balance butter and unsweetened almond milk.
