Re: Need delicious Gluten free desserts

I made Pecan Tassies (little mini-pecan pies) substituting Bob's Red Mill 1 cup for 1 cup gluten free flour (light blue label on the package) for regular flour in the crust.  We thought they were SO, SO good.  No one new they were gluten free by the taste.  He has another flour that has been out for longer, but I didn't want to use that one because the ingredients are different and I have heard it has a little "beany" taste to it.  The ones we made were delicious and we gave them as gifts.

Namaste has great organic mixes. Gluten free desserts tends to have three times the ingredients, so I love mixes. Pinterest will have amazing recipes also.

Re: Need delicious Gluten free desserts

Any type of mousse.

 

Cheesecake, if you use a gluten free flour for the crust.

 

Bob's Red Mill makes a really great pie crust flour that is gluten free.

You can make pies or tarts.

 

Ice cream Smiley Happy

 

You can make virtually any dessert gluten free by substiuting a gluten free flour.  Some, like Bob's Red Mill, say you can substitute it directly.

 

Others you may have to play with.

 

I've played with using gluten free flours in my regular recipes and they've all come out great.

Trifles are always good and you are only limited by your imagination.  Simply make a cake from one of the gluten free cake mixes-or buy one already made if you really want easy.  Fresh whipped cream is so easy to make and fresh fruit abounds.....

Flourless chocolate cake.  Very rich and super good.

 

Also remember that gluten-free flours absorb moisture differently, so a trifle with fruit and juices topping the cake part will make the cake part go soggy quickly, unlike flour based cakes like a pound cake.  My nephew has a wheat allergy, so we experimet a bunch.  The flourless chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache for the icing is always a hit, especially with vanilla bean ice cream and whipped cream (the real stuff, not cool-whip).

Re: Need delicious Gluten free desserts

I use this gluten free peanut butter cookie recipe from margaretsmorsels.blogspot.com.  Don't let the number of ingredients fool you.  These are the best peanut butter cookies I've ever eaten.

 

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
28 Cookies

 

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg

 

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate 20 minutes so the dough is easier to handle. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Press down with a fork to make crisscross marks. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on the pan for 1 minute before removing to wire rack.
