Thanksgiving Desserts

21 posts in this topic

What are you all planning to make for Thanksgiving dessert? or what have you enjoyed in the past?

We made a pumpkin pie for Halloween so I want to make something different. I have made pumpkin cheesecakes in the past but DS likes his pupkin and cheesecake separately and grandma's cheesecake is reserved for Xmas. We've got some pecan pie eaters in the family but nuts are out for DS so that's a no-go. We've had pear cranberry crisp but we eat crisps often enough that I'd like to make something different. I thought about trying that pumpkin bundt cake that was posted here. Well, I'm looking for some ideas...

What's on your menu for after the meal?

This is probably my most favorite pumpkin recipe. I think because I can have i done in the crock-pot just makes it more special. For my gluten free house I just use Pamela's flour mix. Works fine.

I love this one, you could leave out the nuts.

Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/pumpkin-gooey-butter-cakes-recipe/index.html

There are a lot of recipes on the web for Cranberry Pie. I make one each year. I take a few recipes and pick and choose what I want to add to the pie. I really do not have set recipe. Some years I do just cranberry and orange, cranberry and raspberry, cranberry and apple, cranberry and strawberry. Just whatever sounds good when I'm making it.

You could go with cookies:

Pumpkin Cookies

1 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

1 cup pumpkin

1 egg

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup raisins or nuts (optional) I’ve used dried cranberry too.

Heat oven to 375

Cream shortening, sugar and pumpkin. Add eggs and mix well. Add dry ingredients and Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls on to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes

Frosting

3 tablespoons butter

4 teaspoons milk

½ cup brown sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Cook butter, milk, brown sugar until dissolved. Cool slightly. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Spread on warm cookies.

I received this recipe from DyAnn in 1974 while in Goose Bay AFB.

I'm making cherry cobbler. I'm making almost everything for Thanksgiving. I've been saving my gluten-free bread croutons for stuffing. My sister-in-law is bringing Stovetop Stuffing" in case people don't like my gluten-free stuffing (she's a bit stuffy). ;)

Why is it that we always forget the simple things? Baked apples and vanilla icecream sounds good!

Not at all traditional (except in my family), but chocolate cream pie for the chocolate lovers. I'm sure someone will bring a more traditional apple or pumpkin dessert.

Well, I think I stumbled upon a plan. Was brousing through some old magazines tonight and found...Apple, Cranberry, Currant Pie with French Crumb Topping. We've got one Whole Foods pie crust left in the freezer and kiddo's on a pie kick this year and that'll go over well with the fam. Back-up plan, baked apples w/ ice cream. Same ingredients needed for both!

I don't know what our Thanksgiving plans are yet, but recently on a quest for some new desserts, I have found some that everyone liked. I like that they are all small/individual as opposed to a big pie or cake.

1) coconut cookies (I put caramel and chocolate chip cookies inside)

2) white chocolate chip pumpkin cookies

3) pumpkin spice mini cupcakes - I top these with a half cream cheese, half cool whip frosting so it is light, then top with either pecans or heath bar pieces

Well, apple pie is always nice. I like cooking the apple filling in a pot on the stove. Not only is it faster, but I find it is easier to apply the top crust. Then it only has to bake long enough to brown the crust, and the filling doesn't ooze out all over. I've also used finely shredded coconut instead of a top crust, and baked it just until the coconut gets golden. A crumb topping is good too.

Apple rhubarb or apple with cherries/berries is really good too.

My go-to is always dump cake. So easy, so bad for you, and everyone loves it. I want to stick to something easy this year because I have to make a whole gluten free meal for my fiance's family.

Try a rich raisiney rice pudding with rum sauce. I use the same rum sauce I used to have with bread pudding, just thicken with cornstarch instead of flour.

I'm always in charge of the pies for the holidays. I always do the traditional 2 Libby's pumpkin pies and then an apple and a triple berry pie (use the frozen berries I get at Costco)

This is my favorite apple pie recipe!!

http://www.landolakes.com/recipe/1550/apple-ginger-pie

I make my own gluten-free crust then just sub Pamela's in for the rest of the flours listed in the recipe.

Pear pie is always great. I just use pears in place of apples in any recipe. Much more delicate taste! :P Yum!

    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
