Gluten free pumpkin pie?

Does anyone have a good recipe for gluten free pumpkin pie?

I would just go without a crust, it is a baked custard, afterall. I've also made a crust out of finely chopped pecans, cinnamon sugar and butter (similar to a graham cracker crust) for pumpkin pies.

I just swap out the same amount of pecans for the crushed graham crackers so;

2 cups crushed pecans, how crushed is your preference from small chop to fine
6 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar...I mix my own cinnamon sugar, basically sugar to your taste and add cinnamon.

I've heard of people using crushed Pralines or honey roasted, too.

Back when we were doing Atkins, I came up with this (then found out I was not original), I was using Splenda for the sugar.

I'd like to try this recipe with toasted pecans. Do you think that would work?

There would be no wheat flour (gluten) in it. Perfect. Gluten free is very easy if you stay away from flour and foods that need it.

I love the idea of substituting nuts for graham crackers. Do you toast the pecans when you make this crust? I'm guessing that toasting would enhance the flavor.

Either works, I do like the toasted. Almonds are also good, I like using smoked almonds for savory cheesecakes and quiches.
