In a large mixing bowl, wisk together the brown rice flour, light brown sugar, tapioca starch, almond flour, xanthan gum, baking power, ginger, cinnamon, sea salt, & nutmeg.

In another bowl, mix together the sugar & eggs, until well combined. Add in the pumpkin, & vanilla, & beat well. Stir in the dry ingredients, & mix gently until smooth.

Spoon the cake batter into the 12 cupcake liners & smooth out the tops.

Bake in the center of a pre-heated oven for 22 to 25 minutes or so, until the tops are firm but springy. Cool in the pan briefly, until the cupcakes are cool enough to handle. Then remove them from the baking pan and cool or a wire rack. Frost & enjoy!

flaky pie crust

1/3 cup brown rice flour 1/3 cup tapioca flour1/3 cup potato starch1 tablespoon cornstarch2 teaspoons sugar1/2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled1 large egg1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 350*F.

Sift together rice & tapioca flour, potato & cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum, & salt into a mixing bowl.

Cut cold butter into dry ingredients. Blend with a pastry cutter until butter is incorporated into the dry ingredients.

The dough should hold together when squeezed. Beat egg with vinegar & mix into dough.

Form dough into a ball with your hands. Add a little tapioca flour if the dough is too sticky. Roll out the dough between two sheets of wax paper. The dough should be about 1 1/2 inches larger in diameter than the pie plate.

Peel one sheet of wax paper away from dough. Place pie crust in pan. Remove top sheet of wax paper. Trim excess dough & crimp edges to form a decorative border.

Tip: If the recipe calls for a baked pie shell, prick the dough with a fork & bake at 350*F for10-12 minutes. Cool before filling.
