Someone posted about cheesecake a couple of weeks ago. In response to that post, I mentioned that there is a gluten-free bakery in Philadelphia that makes great cheesecake. They can ship their products, which would be the only option for you. Their URL is:

My only relationship to them is as a customer.

This isn't quite the same, but Philadelphia Cream Cheese brand makes cheesecake filling in a tub. It's not bad, and it's gluten-free.

I served that for Thanksgiving and topped with home made cranberry sauce. Not, the best, but it's good for a fix.

I made this recipe - it was very good. Not dense, but still yummy and easy to make. I just buttered the pie pan it came right out. I topped it with cherry pie filling (gluten-free). :P

Baked Cheesecake Classic

Prep Time: 25 minutes minutes

Ingredients

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

dash salt

2 eggs

Topping

1 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

1. In large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar on medium speed of electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and salt. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until just combined after each addition.

2. Place crust on baking sheet. Pour in cream cheese mixture. Bake at 325°F about 25 minutes or until knife inserted into filling 1 inch from edge comes out clean.

3. In small bowl combine sour cream, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Carefully spread over cheesecake. Bake at 325°F for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Exactly. A few spoonfuls of that with a little fruit = instant dessert.

for a crust, a lot of times the "recipes" call for crushed up graham crackers (and then you add some butter), etc.

I used gluten free cookies...like midels ginger snaps or pamelas shortbread, and crush them up.

At Walmart Super-Centers they have a gluten-free Cheescake single serving in a small box, made by "Missy's" - it is labeled Gluten Free! What it really is, is just regular cheesecake filling without any crust. It is delicious and exactly what you are looking for. They also have a "sugar free" version which my husband (diabetic) says tastes "so-so".....

I ate 4 of the regular gluten-free ones over the past 4 days with no problems.

They were in the front of the store against the deli counter - where you get the gourmet breads, etc.

I get the Jello No Bake Cheese cake and just throw away the crust mix. You just add milk. I pour it into the aluminum baking cups (makes about 15) and chill them and then eat out of the cup with a spoon. I also made them for dessert for Thanksgiving dinner and topped them with Cherry Pie filling.

How did you know for sure that the Jello Cheesecake was gluten-free? I love that stuff and had never thought about eating it without the crust. Can't tell you how many of those I made when my boys were growing up and put a can of cherry pie filling on top. Great memories. I also am going to check out the Missy's in the deli section of WalMart.....aren't they great to mark so much of their stuff gluten free???

They list the Jello cheesecake ingredients seperate from the crust ingredients. (I also throw out the crust). I get the gluten free graham cracker crust mix and put the jello cheesecake in it. It is yummy!

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
