gluten free pumpkin tarts – mmmmmm pumpkin …

pumpkin tarts. gf and me 2013.I found this fabulous recipe for cupcakes on fantasy author S. J. Wolff’s blog,  Wolff’s Realm. I converted it and the result was awesome – they disappeared before I could even get a photo! So I made them again, added a ginger cookie and coconut crust, and didn’t tell anyone until I had a picture to post! 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.

This would also be great with Mary’s Magnificent Pie Crust!

This bread is chock full of of sugar and spice and everything nice. If you miss cinnamon buns, this recipe is for you. If you really want to be decadent, drizzle the top with a vanilla glaze or our not-too-sweet cream cheese icing.     cinnamon coffee bread gluten free. gfandme

The smell of this cinnamon coffee bread in the oven is so AH-MAZ-ING, don’t be surprised if the neighbours come calling! And if they do, they will never guess it’s gluten free.
