Pumpkin Custard (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

You may have not yet noticed…but I am a lover of all things pumpkin.

Pumpkin dip, pumpkin with caramel, pumpkin pie….give me some pumpkin candles, pumpkin cookies and pumpkin muffins (gluten-free, dairy-free of course), and I’m a happy girl.

With so many holiday events going on, I knew it was high time for me to find a pumpkin recipe that is simple enough to go together quickly, yet big enough to serve a crowd.

Still…when I was invited to the Food Network Communal Table: Thanksgiving Edition; I wasn’t quite certain what to bring.

I make a mean cranberry sauce, and my dairy-free eggnog is always a hit, then again, I could always put a new twist into my favorite fudge recipes.

Even so, my mind kept returning to my beloved pumpkin and I knew I simply must find a way to create a dish worthy of such an event.

This Pumpkin Custard is not your typical pumpkin dessert…lighter in flavor than most pumpkin pie fillings, free of refined sugar and dairy, topped with a ‘sugar crust’ reminiscent of crème brulee… this recipe goes together easily yet is large enough to satisfy a crowd and gourmet enough to deserve a place on the communal table.

I hope you find many reasons to fill your holiday table with lovely dishes such as these…more importantly though, I pray you find the love, laughter and friendship you so openly deserve throughout the season.

Happy Holidays
