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 Pie Spice

Pumpkin pie spice is key to the best gluten-free pumpkin 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.

Gluten-Free Flour

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.

Egg-Free Baking & Cooking

I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Egg Replacer as an egg replacer. If you use the dairy-free milk and the egg replacer, these pumpkin recipes would be both gluten-free and vegan.

Dairy-Free Baking & Cooking

To make a gluten-free and dairy-free pumpkin recipes, I used Smart Balance butter and unsweetened almond milk.

Some of my favorite dairy-free alternatives that I like to bake with are Smart Balance butter, coconut oil, unsweetened almond, cashew, or coconut milk.
