Homemade Gluten Free Moon Pie

This recipe is a favorite of my families.  We love it.  So when we went gluten free I of course had to make it a gluten free recipe too.  It's simple to make and delicious to eat!

1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour(1/2 cup brown rice, 1/4 cup sorghum flour, and 1/4 oat flour)
4 eggs

In a medium saucepan bring the butter and water to a rolling boil on medium heat.  Dump in the flour and stir briskly until it forms a ball.  Remove from heat and add the eggs one at a time mixing it thoroughly in before adding the next.  Spread out thinly on a jelly roll pan.  Using a fork poke plenty of holes in the crust to keep it from forming too many bubbles.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  This will depend somewhat on what types of flour you use.

Remove from oven and let cool.  Once it is cool you move on to the next step!

Freshly baked crust.

2 small packages pudding mix(any flavor)
8 oz cream cheese
3 cups cold milk

Mix all three ingredients together thoroughly.  It is best to use a mixer so that you don't have any cream cheese lumps, but I am mixer less and as you can see below you can mix without a mixer.  I did have some cream cheese lumps though.  Pour this over the crust and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until the pudding mix has set.

My not so pretty filling.

whipped cream(you can use cool whip or make your own--my recipe coming soon)
ice cream toppings can also be used on top of the whipped cream(syrups, sprinkles, etc) but we really like to use fresh fruit when it's in season.

Add the topping ontop of the filling, cut into pieces and serve!  This stuff is delicous and addicting!

Topped and ready to enjoy!

  1. This recipe sounds, and looks, delicious. I am a baker so I will definitely have to make this. I have relatives who eat store-bought moon pies just about everyday and this seems like it would cut back on the cost of those things. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    1. I don't like store bought moon pies, but I love these!

  2. This looks so easy to make! I haven't tried doing a moon pie yet but I'm hoping to get to it before the year ends. if it's a hit, I might prepare it on New Year's eve! :D

  3. these look delicious. I have to admit, up until very recently I have never had a moon pie. Friends of mine live outside Harrisburg PA, deep in Amish land and that is where I tried my first moon pie. The Amish sell them to the local markets. I was quite pleasantly surprised, and very glad that I was only visiting. I really don't need daily access to these delights. LOL
