I discovered a new treat in the Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakery line, in the freezer section. They have developed an Apple FrangiPani Tart. The correct way to make this is using almond paste but that is extremely expensive to use in baking so they use almond flour instead and I have to say....it's very, very good!
It's not a single serving but a regular size tart and I think it was around $12.99. I really like almond paste but this is delicious and would make a good
dessert for guests. So go out and buy this now.....it's pretty darn good. :)

The gluten-free bakery items are located in the freezer section...they do not have an in store gluten-free bakery. They are shipped up from their dedicated facility in North Carolina. I only buy a few of their items as the other stuff they carry I can generally make at home easily enough. Their pie crusts are fantastic and the tart is quite good for a frozen item. Just keep it in the fridge and take it out to warm up when you want to eat them.

I can vouch for the Pecan Pie, Apple Pie, Cupcakes and the soooo good Almond Scones.

Haven't tried the other items.

I went into Whole Foods today!!!! (yay) for the first time this summer (well, fall now!) and was so thrilled to find their frozen pie crusts (couldn't find those last year) so I am busily planning what kinds of pies I am going to make. :) Did not look at all the other goodies, because I already have a sin.... I found some gluten free root beer, and rediscovered the absolute yumminess of root beer floats. Every time I have one I imagine I am at a diner and being served by winsome lasses on roller skates (never personally experienced, only seen in movies :P )

Their frozen, ready made pie crusts are really, really good. I work full time and have a commute so haven't explored home made gluten-free pie crust making yet but I did make a killer wheat crust back in the day so do know what to do. I make my pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving from the Whole Foods crust and everyone raves about it. It holds together beautifully too. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Shadowicewolf.....that is a pretty complete listing of their gluten-free stuff. I have not tried many of their products because I do some home baking and prefer to make certain items myself but the Morning Glory muffins are yummy. You have to toast them from a flavor perspective but they are made from quinoa and taste like a carrot muffin. There are carrots and pineapple in them. They are my favorite.

The scones are good too and I like to use the Prairie bread for making Thanksgiving stuffing as it's a firm bread that holds up well. You do have to toast it as it is not a soft sandwich bread but it makes delicious toast. I think, overall, they do a great job with their gluten-free bakery. You may be correct....maybe some Whole Foods somewhere has a gluten-free bakery in store, like a regular bakery, but not in my area.
