  • 2 cups crushed gluten-free Cinnamon Chex cereal , or your favorite flavor of gluten-free Chex
  • 1 cup gluten-free Bisquick   If you don’t have gluten-free Bisquick , see the recipe notes to make your own.
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter dairy-free use Smart Balance butter
  • 3 tablespoons ice water
  • gluten-free cooking spray I like coconut spray

Pumpkin Filling:

  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 12 oz. can evaporated milk dairy-free use 1 cup of full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 425° F.


  • Crush the gluten-free cinnamon Chex cereal in a food processor until you have 2 cups.
  • Add gluten-free Bisquick and chopped butter (dairy-free use Smart Balance butter) in the food processor. Process until the consistency of thick sand.
  • Pour the Chex mixture into a bowl. Add the ice water and mix with your hands until a compact dough has formed. Refrigerate while making the pie filling.

Pumpkin Filling

  • In a large bowl beat eggs and sugar together.
  • Add cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla and mix until fully combined.
  • Add pumpkin and mix until fully combined.
  • Stir in evaporated milk and mix until fully combined. Dairy-free use 1 cup of canned coconut milk (full fat).
  • Spay 9-inch pie dish with gluten-free cooking spray.
  • Press the dough into the pie dish.
  • Using the middle rack, bake for 5 minutes at 425° F.
  • Remove from oven and pour pumpkin pie filling into the pie crust. Depending on how deep your pie pan is, you may have a little of the filling left over. I always pour it into a custard cup and bake it.
  • Using the middle rack bake for 15 minutes at 425° F and then lower the heat to 350° F and bake for an additional 40 to 50 minutes. Please watch your pie and if the crust is getting too brown for your liking cover crust edges with foil.
  • Allow to cool before serving.  I like to allow the pie to cool for at least 1 hour before I refrigerate the pie. It's best served cold.
  • Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.  Enjoy!
  • Once cooled cover and refrigerate.


  • If you do not have the gluten-free Bisquick, you can make your own with this recipe.
  • For dairy-free use 1 cup of canned coconut milk (full fat) and Smart Balance butter.
  • I bake all of my pies in a 9 1/2 inch deep pie pan. A deep-dish pie pan is 1-1/2 to 2 inches deep.
  • Once cooled cover and refrigerate.
