Have you been wringing your hands with worry over whether you can enjoy fall’s pleasures now that you’re cooking and baking gluten free? Never fear! Although I cannot be everything to every reader (a sad, but necessary, realization if I expect to keep my own mental health intact), one thing I can do and I will do is give you back your old favorites. A voracious omnivore by nature, there’s a good chance that your favorites are my favorites, too. Or maybe they’ll be new favorites of mine. Then we all win! Either way, rest assured that we’ll have everything from Halloween treats to Thanksgiving stuffing, and everything in between, covered in spades.
So let’s start with these 8 Gluten Free Pumpkin Recipes. There’s some of the best that this blog has to offer, and I hope you’ll consider them a downpayment on my promise to bring back everything you love about the season—at least in the kitchen!

Here’s a 10¢ tour of these 8 amazing pumpkin baking recipes, and a few words to say what I love about each of them (remember—all the links are above):

Gluten Free Pumpkin Crack Cake: So politically incorrect! This crazy good gluten free cake is no fancypants dessert, but bring it to a party and watch it disappear before anything else. And, as the name implies, no one will be able to resist coming back for more, so make extra.

I’m at your holiday service. :)
Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes with Molasses Cream Cheese Frosting: Oh these are just too good to believe, and like any pumpkin baking worth its salt, will make your house smell like an autumn dream come true.
