Pumpkin Custard

My husband loves custard. It is one of his favorite desserts. I like it, but I get tired of your basic custard. I have two recipes for custard this week that are a little different, but they will both be great for the holidays or any day.

The version today is a pumpkin custard. What is so nice about custard is how simple it is. Custard is an old fashioned and simple dessert. The pumpkin in this custard makes it perfect for the holidays.

The other thing that is nice about custard is that it is gluten free. I don’t have to do anything with this recipe to make it gluten free. That is great because right now I need gluten free desserts that are easy to make and guaranteed turn out.

I will say though that custard does not look the best photographed. This is one of those recipes where I am tempted not to post photos, but I like photos with each post. So, just know this tastes much better than it looks.
