these are good. Gluten eaters will like them. If you are going to share any food, take yours first. Or easier, just bring a separate portion for yourself that you keep away from gluteny fingers and crumbs.

These are a few that I have handy:

Banana Split Cheesecake

Ingredients:

2 packages no-bake cheese cake mix (Throw away the crust and create your own with Gluten Free Graham Crackers/cookies or just omit the crust altogether)

This coffeecake was outstanding and it did not need refrigeration:

I used extra dark brown sugar for the topping and did not have any nuts. It was probably my favorite gluten-free dessert ever. Right up there with Pumpkin Bars.

Here's a nice summer dessert:

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

3/4 cup gluten-free pretzels

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

crush pretzels to pieces about 1/4 inch maximum

mix together

press into bottom of greased 8 X 8 inch pan

bake 350 F for about 7 minutes

cool about 1 hour

4 oz cream cheese

1/4 cup sugar

8-9 oz Cool Whip

whip cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy

fold in Cool Whip (add more to taste if you want)

spread across pretzel layer (save a little for garnish if desired)

refrigerate 15 minutes or longer

1 small package strawberry Jello

1 cup hot water

1 large package frozen strawberries (without juice)

or sliced fresh strawberries - about 1/2 pint

dissolve jello in water, then add strawberries

after it thickens a little, pour over cream cheese layer

refrigerate 2 hours minimum

If using fresh strawberries, wash, cut (as desired) and put in freezer

15 minutes or longer to help the Jello begin to set quickly

You can reserve a small amount of the jello mix and add to the cream cheese layer to make it pink.

Another one - this looks and tastes like it took a lot of trouble to make, but really is not hard. Although as we are baking in 100+ temps outside, the thought of turning my oven on....

Petite White Chocolate Cranberry Scones

2 cups gluten-free flour blend

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp lemon or orange zest

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter/margarine

3/4 cup whipping cream

3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

3/4 cup gluten-free white baking chips

1/2 cup gluten-free white baking chips

2 tsp shortening

Heat oven to 400oF

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, zest and salt in a large bowl

Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs

Stir in cream, mix in

Stir in cranberries and 3/4 cup white baking chips

Knead dough 5-10 times until smooth

Divide dough into 4 equal pieces

Shape each piece into a 8 X 1 inch log

Cut each log into 4 pieces (2 inch each)

Cut each 2-inch piece in half diagonally

Place on ungreased baking sheet at least 1 inch apart

Bake 9-11 minutes - golden brown around the edges

Cool completely

Mix 1/2 cup baking chips and 2 shortening in small microwaveable bowl

Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds at a time until melted

Stir and drizzle scones with melted chocolate

gluten-free Flour Blend (or use your favorite)

2 cups white rice flour

2/3 cup potato starch

1/3 cup tapioca starch

2 tsp Xanthan gum

----------------------------------------------------------------

One more comment - I make a lot of good desserts, but honestly, what everyone seems to go for the most is when I make gluten-free brownies. Nothing special about the recipe, but I top with a very thin layer of chocolate frosting and Heath bar pieces.

How about individual pavlovas? They are so pretty and tasty. Or using some meringue make Eton Mess. gluten-free shortbread with panna cotta or semifreddo is nice. Butterscotch or chocolate brownies dressed with maybe a raspberry coulis or caramel are awesome. I've made chocolate chip cookie dough brownies and they are deliciuos. I've been making lots of granita and Strawberry/Raspberry Fool. Or make chocolate chip cookies and turn them into ice cream sandwiches. gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are delicious and easy to make from scratch. Maybe chocolate truffles?

Most cheesecakes can easily be made gluten-free and so can Angel Food cake (yummy with a glaze, buttercream or 7-Minute frosting).
