In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

This recipe comes to us from Carolyn Mann.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Crust Ingredients:
1 ¼ cup finely crushed gluten-free graham crackers
½ cup finely chopped pecans
2 tablespoons melted butter

Crust Directions:
Combine gluten-free graham cracker crumbs, pecans and butter in a bowl and mix well. Firmly press mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Place crust in freezer while preparing the filling

Filling Ingredients:
2/3 cup non-fat plain yogurt
2 (8 oz) packages light cream cheese softened
1 ¾ cups canned pumpkin
2 eggs
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ cups nonfat evaporated milk
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Filling Directions:
In a medium bowl, beat yogurt and cream cheese until creamy. In a separate bowl, combine remaining filling ingredients and beat until creamy. Stir into cream cheese mixture and beat until well mixed and creamy. Pour filling into crust and bake for 2 hours, or until middle slightly jiggles when tapped.

Cool on rack, and then cool in refrigerator at least 4 hours before serving. Garnish with whipped topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon (optional).

Makes 16 servings.
