I found this fabulous recipe for pumpkin cupcakes on fantasy author S. J. Wolff’s blog, Wolff’s Realm. I converted it to gluten free using coconut and rice flours, and the result was awesome! The cupcakes disappeared before I could even get a photo! So I made them again, and this time I made them into gluten free pumpkin tarts by adding a ginger cookie and coconut crust. The ginger and coconut flavours combined beautifully with the pumpkin, the crumbs added a bit of texture, and the tarts also came out of the pan easier. And this time, I didn’t tell anyone about them until I had a picture to post!
This filling would also be great with Mary’s Magnificent Pie Crust!

Add the flour mix to the pumpkin and combine.
Divide pumpkin filling into 6 muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes.

If you made the crust, let the tarts cool completely in the fridge before removing from the pan.
