Fall flavors like this easy gluten free pumpkin cream pie warm your heart and thrill your taste buds. This creamy pumpkin cream pie is seriously so easy to throw together, and it makes an incredible dessert for the holidays. Serve it at your fall family gatherings or as a nice after-dinner treat.
The base of this easy pumpkin pudding pie is no-bake vanilla pudding. Then I whipped in pumpkin with yummy spices. It's out of this world! Add in this amazing gluten free graham cracker crust made with Schär Honeygrams, and it is a pie made in heaven!

If you are gluten free, most likely you have seen Schär's gluten free products in stores. Schär has been making gluten free since 1981, way before it was easy to find gluten free in stores!
Schär's gluten free foods were brought to the U.S. in 2007 and we are so thankful! You can find Schärr Gluten Free at most grocery stores and online.
Schärr Gluten Free has so many types of bread and rolls, pasta, crackers, and yummy cookie treats and they are used daily in our Fearless Dining house. We use their Artisan Baker Multigrain Bread to make my kids' sandwiches for school, and I love to toss in a couple of gluten free chocolate dipped cookies too :-).
Schär Gluten Free Honeygrams Graham Cracker style cookies are the star of today's gluten free pumpkin pudding pie recipe. Their gluten free graham crackers are not only perfect in this pumpkin pudding recipe, but they also make an amazing cheesecake crust, s' mores, and chocolate fondue topping!!
You can also use these honeygrams to make a crust for this easy gluten free banana cream pie recipe!
I have made it pretty clear how the Fearless Dining household feels about pumpkin! We LOVE it, and I can't make enough pumpkin-flavored foods each fall. The homemade pumpkin pudding itself is so creamy and smooth and I added this delicious graham cracker crust to make it into a pie for the holidays. Let me just say we are talking next-level good here!
Schär makes one of the best gluten free graham crackers and it is perfect in making graham cracker crusts! If you are lucky enough to find their gluten free chocolate graham crackers...OMG grab a box or two!!

The first step to make this gluten free pumpkin cream pie is to add your Schär Gluten Free Honeygrams to a bag and use a rolling pin to crush the Honeygrams into crumbs. (My kids love crushing these into itty bitty crumbs!) Add the crumbs to a bowl with melted butter and gluten free flour.
One thing I love about Schär Gluten Free Honeygrams is how easy they crush into crumbs. It makes crusts for desserts so much easier to make!
Can you crush the graham crackers in a food processor?
You can definitely use a food processor to crush your graham cracker crumbs...just don't overmix or it can turn into a paste. Press the crumbs into the pie pan to cover the bottom and sides. Use the bottom of a glass or a spoon to press flat. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to chill.
Add the coconut milk (or non-dairy milk), vanilla no-cook pudding mix, pumpkin puree, and spices to a bowl. Whisk for 3 minutes. Allow setting an additional 5 minutes.
Pour the pudding mix into the pie crust and cool for 2 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and pecans.
Now your pudding pie is ready to chill! Refrigerate for 3 hours (or freeze if you would like it to set faster.)
How long does pudding last in the refrigerator?
Homemade pudding will last up to 1 week in the refrigerator. Always store it in an airtight container and keep it away from other foods with strong odors. Otherwise, it may take on those flavors.
Check the pudding over if it's been in the fridge for long to make sure it hasn't begun spoiling. It shouldn't be overly watery or dry.
Can you freeze homemade cream pie?
Yes, absolutely you can freeze this homemade cream pie. I would recommend making the pie crust at a later date so it doesn't get soggy freezing with the pudding. Allow the pudding to cool all the way, then store it in an airtight, freezer-safe container. It will last around 3 months in the freezer.
To thaw, place the gluten free pumpkin cream pie in the refrigerator the night before and it will defrost. Then make your crust and add the pumpkin pudding.
