On my way to meet family in Abbruzzo right now, but remembered that back home its almost Thanksgiving!  So, here’s a  favorite to share with you…. More italian recipes and travel stories to come in a few days :)

Inspired by the beautiful pie that Karina made,  I wanted to tweak the recipe and put my own spin- especially if i could make it  refined sugar free and xanthan gum free… and take out that xantham gum that makes me so sick all the time … so here it is!

I”ve included the pie crust recipe here too.



Now on to the pie crust below!

  1. oh gosh Cynthia, thank you so very much. you’ve just made my day.
    for the crust, feel free to use your preferred non-grain and non-tuber flurs and starches for the crust. the taste will change a bit but it should turn out- if you are worried that it might not hold together, try adding a tsp of ground chia seeds or ground flax or even unflavoured gelatin. About the crust though, i also have a FAVORITE blog that i just adore- i think you might really like it- she has a terrific pumpkin pie recipe that is totally grain free (she is grain free herself)- she’s also got a pile of terrific grain-free breads based from coconut flour. Also, if you can do eggs – check out – she has a wonderful almond flour bread that works very well as well. I’m working on a cinnamon bun recipe- can’t wait to share :) Thank you, so very much, for taking the time to write. on the days when my gut is being rather mean ,its just so encouraging to know there’s someone else out there. :) xo alea

  2. Alea,
    I am new to your site and I have to say I just love it. I too have more food intolerances than I can count, and I only wish I would have known about them decades ago. Nevertheless, I am on a healing journey now and your site is truly a sight for sore eyes. Your almond bread is the first ever gluten free, egg free, yeast free, xanthan gum free, etc. bread recipe for me that not only was a success in making it (last night), it is actually delicious even a day after it’s made! I am forever grateful as I have spent countless hours and dollars trying to create/buy/search a bread I can eat. I used the mini loaf pan from Williams Sonoma and it worked beautifully for small sandwiches (think tea). If you have made any other versions of it using quinoa flour or baking powder (I make my own corn-free baking powder), please let me know. Otherwise, it’s a staple now in our house. I can’t wait to make this pumpkin pie…..though I can’t use sorghum or potato flour…I don’t use grains or tubers of any kind though I can have buckwheat and quinoa, neither of which is a true grain. Can you make a substitution recommendation for those two ingredients for the crust? Have you tried almond flour? Thank You for your extreme dedication to this blog. I am forever grateful.

  3. Hi Lillian,

    For starters, if you want to make a roll that is softer dough, i highly recommend you use the dough in this recipe: If you want to use a pie crust to make the roll, try this recipe, but add 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp more of xanthan gum : . For the cheese part. I really honestly think you should try 1 cup of cashew butter mixed with 1 tbsp unflavoured gelatine or 1 tsp agar agar powder, plus 1-2 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 tbsp melted coconut oil or palm oil. Or, you could try using raw cashew butter to replace the regular cashew butter for a lighter flavour, or you could use a combination of 1 cup cashews ground as finely as possible (try a coffee grinder), soaked overnight in 1/3 cup of coconut milk. I’ve never baked cashews, but i think that if you use the cashew butter it will have enough oil in it to turn out well. Let me know how it goes! I would love to try making a dairy free pumpkin cheescake!

  4. I am looking for a substitute for cream cheese other than the tofuti cream cheese for a friend. Her son can’t have soy as well as the dairy and the gluten. Do you have any information for that. Her sister want’s to make a pumkin roll for him, but can’t find a substitute.
    Please let me know if there is anything out there.
    Thank you in advance.
