My son turns one in a few weeks (on his Dad's birthday too!) and I'm going to try this recipe for Ice Cream Pie with a Rice Krispie (the gluten free ones!) crust. It looks kidlicious and my non-celiac husband has been getting DQ cakes for years anyway as he happens to hate cake! I'm excited to try it out! Found it on-line.
Tebow's Special Ice Cream Pie Recipe
2-1/2 cups Rice Krispies
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons light corn syrup, divided
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup hot fudge ice cream topping (I will find a gluten-free one or make from scratch)
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 quart (4 cups) vanilla ice cream, softened
Combine the corn syrup, the brown sugar, and butter in medium size saucepan.
Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to boil.
Remove from heat. Add rice krispies cereal, stirring until well coated.
Press evenly in 9 in. pie pan to form crust. Stir together peanut butter, fudge sauce, and the 3 T. corn syrup. Spread half the peanut butter mixture over crust. Freeze until firm.
Allow ice cream to soften slightly. Spoon into frozen piecrust, spreading evenly. Freeze until firm. Let pie stand at room temperature about 10 minutes before cutting. Warm remaining peanut butter mixture and drizzle over top.
This recipe was styled by chef Karen Pickus for Good Morning America.
Hello! I am new too! (To the forum and to Celiac Disease!)
I am in Calgary and am recently diagnosed. I feel somewhat lucky, as my symptoms have progressed so quickly since the birth of my child 11 months ago that I haven't suffered too long before being diagnosed.
I have quickly developed symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, am losing my thyroid functioning (auto-immune issue), and generally felt extremely foggy and fatigued. Occasionally I get gut wrenching spasms and diarrhea. For the last 15 years I've been told I had IBS and a few years ago had issues with cervical cancer which appear to be resolved. I had no idea I was systematically poisoning myself with almost everything I was eating!! Unimaginable! I had no knowledge at all about celiac. Now that I am educating myself, I can see how many people in my family seem to be suffering from symptoms. I have read that depression is a symptom of gluten intolerance, and several family members have struggled with clinical depression. No one else seems to want to get tested yet and sign up for the gluten free diet.
I have become allergic to eggs too, and hope to repair my gut before I become allergic to more foods! I am doing well following the diet but do get 'glutened' from time to time.
I want to say something to the folks on this forum and elsewhere who have celiac disease - I feel so grateful that there is already such a compassionate and trailblazing community. It is really these forums that have helped me to feel not alone and that many people really get my experience! No one in my personal circle can really understand my experience, and I was feeling pretty alone. Since discovering this forum, advice on eating out, and great cookbooks etc., I actually feel like I belong to a community. And this is indeed a positive thing. I look forward to being a part of a great community, weathering my ups and downs, and hopefully feeling really well again (or maybe for the first time in memory??)!
Anyway, sorry for the ramble, but it feels good to 'talk' about it, and to say thanks for the support. This forum has already been so valuable to me over the last months!
