Thanksgiving Desserts

The holidays can be tough if you have food restrictions.  But with the right recipes and tips you can make food that is as good or better than what you ate before.  Here are my tips for making the best gluten free desserts.

Dutch Apple Pie

Gluten Free & Dairy Free

If you want to use a gluten recipe that calls for less than 1/4 cup of flour, you can usually replace it with any cup for cup or 1-to-1 flour and it will turn out just fine.  If it calls for more than that, use a recipe developed to be gluten free.

Tip #1

Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Gluten Free & Dairy Free

German Chocolate Pecan Pie

This pie is loaded with pecans, coconut, chunks of chocolate and a caramel filling.  All the flavors you love from german chocolate cake!

Gluten Free & Dairy Free

TIP #2

Gluten free flour needs more time to absorb moisture, so let your batter rest for 10-15 minutes before baking to avoid gritty texture.

Maple Pecan Pie

Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Corn Syrup Free

Apple Butter Custard Pie

This tasty pie has the texture of pumpkin pie with the flavor of apples and spices.  It's the perfect addition to your holiday table!

TIP #3

You can replace small amounts of flour with cornstarch or tapioca starch.  Starch is twice as powerful at thickening as flour, so use half as much.  This is great for fruit pies and crumbles!

Apple Crumble

Kentucky Derby Pie

It's the best kind of mashup - pecan pie and chocolate chip cookies mixed together!  Plus a splash of bourbon. ;)

TIP #4

If you don't feel confident making your own pie crust, you can buy frozen gf pie shells and gf graham cracker crusts at most grocery stores.

Flaky Pie Crust

I strive to make gluten free dishes that are not just good enough, but better than their gluten counterparts. Living without gluten doesn't need to mean living without yum.
