      It’s delicious Trudy. I just made some more last night (to take the photo). I think I’ll go have some more now!

        My hubby is allergic to eggs. What could I substitute with and how much? Thanks

          You’ll need something to help it set…gelatin or agar agar may work well, although I’m sure how much. Let us know how it goes! Julie

    I made your pumpkin pie recipe for Thanksgiving and crossed my fingers since the kids were looking forward to pumpkin pie and I didn’t want to disappoint them! I used one can of organic Farmer’s Market pumpkin, 3/4 sugar, 1/2 cup Native Forest Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk, spices, vanilla, and eggs but left out the ghee/coconut butter. I poured mine into a GFCF pie crust and baked about an hour. I put a pie crust cover over the edges to prevent them from burning. It turned out amazing!! Nobody would have known it was GFCF. And as a special treat I put the left over coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight, then scooped off the cream in the morning, added some vanilla and powdered sugar and made them a delicious whipped cream for on top. They literally squealed with delight! Thanks for the great recipe!
