For the dough

  • 1 cup King Arthur Measure for Measure Gluten free Flour
  • 6 tablespoon vegan butter cold and cut into ½ inch pieces (sub grass fed butter if needed)
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoon cold water

For the filling

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice

For the whipped cream

  • 13 oz coconut milk full-fat, chilled overnight
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • In a food processor, pulse the King Arthur Measure for Measure Gluten free Flour and the cold butter pieces a few times until the butter is broken up slightly. There should still be little clumps of butter in the mixture.
  • Add the maple syrup and cold water to the processor while it's running. Mix until a large ball of dough forms.
  • Wrap up the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  • For the filling, beat the pumpkin puree, coconut sugar, egg yolk, molasses, almond milk, and pumpkin spice in a bowl until creamy. You can use a hand or stand mixer for this or a stiff whisk. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Take the dough out of the fridge and roll out on a piece of parchment paper to ½ inch in thickness. Use a 4 inch circular or scalloped cookie cutter to cut shapes out of the dough. Coat a muffin tin with oil and carefully press each shape into the cavities.
  • Scoop 3 tablespoon of the pumpkin pie filling into each crust. Drop the muffin tin on the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles and even out the filling.
  • Bake the pan in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Let cool before topping with whipped coconut cream.
  • When ready to serve, prepare the coconut whipped cream by beating the chilled coconut cream with the vanilla until thick and creamy. You can also use a whipped cream dispenser for this. Dollop each mini pumpkin pie with the cream and enjoy! 


Coconut whipped cream : You can use a whipped cream dispenser to top these mini pies. You use it the same way you would normal whipped cream! Simply add chilled coconut milk and a little vanilla to the base and shake a few times. Then attach the nitrogen cartridge. You will hear a hissing noise at the nitrogen flows into the base. Shake a few more times then dispense onto the top of your mini pumpkin pies!
Storing : Store these mini almond milk pumpkin pies in the fridge until ready to enjoy. Keep them in an airtight container with a lid. You can go ahead and top with whipped coconut cream if you want or wait and do that when serving.
Make ahead of time : You can make the dough ahead of time and store it in the fridge until ready to use. It will keep for 3 days when chilled and wrapped up.
