Fall flavors and the spirit of Halloween merge in this delightful dessert shared with us by Fruit Tart. She created this luscious non-dairy pumpkin custard for a friend on a restricted diet. It consequently contains no wheat, gluten, dairy, or cane sugar. The creamy factor is made possible by eggs, which her friend can eat.
