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). ;)

baked apples.

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!

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
