Not sure if you would like a cold dessert but this is what we always have at my house in Australia. Soften some vanila icecream and then stir through whatever you like. My favourite is gluten-free marshmallows, gluten-free turkish delight (or any other jellies or sweets or even a choc bar), choc chips, raspberries and pistachio nuts. Then just refreeze in a nice mould. You can decorate with melted choc or any way you want. Use whatever sweets, crushed cookies, nuts etc that you llike. Always good.

Just made "Better than Sex" chex mix. It tasted great before I added the Drizzles and salt even.

Gluten Free since October 2012
Negative blood work, positive dietary response
Endocrinologist offered referral to GI if I needed formal diagnosis to follow the diet, otherwise just pass on wheat, barley & rye
and save my money

I've made a "Better than Sex" cake before (but that title is somewhat debatable, really .....don't we all agree?...) :lol:

Yes. Whoever came up with that name lacks a basic understanding of the term "insulin spike."

I saw that on one of the British cooking shows; it is a "mess" :lol: but also looks very yummy. May do for Christmas.

It is a mess. A glorious one. I'm making it this weekend with blackberries and pink peppercorns.

Good grief, love2travel, you're such a gourmet cook! I wish I could come visit you!

I would LOVE it if you did! We could cook up such a storm we wouldn't even notice the cold and snow! :D

My sister-in-law and I went nuts making both regular and gluten-free desserts on Thanksgiving and no one even made it to them! So for Christmas, she's making some cookies and I'm making gluten-free Rice Krispy Treats - easy stuff to pack up and send home with everyone. However, bc I came up with this plan today, I've been craving a rice krispy treat ALL day!!!

My family's traditional holiday dessert is a Swedish-style rice pudding, which is naturally gluten free. Easy to make: it's a 1/2 cup of rice cooked in 2 1/2 cups whole milk until the rice starts to soften. Then you add an egg beaten into 1/2 a cup of half and half, and you cook everything over low heat until it thickens - takes about 15 minutes, and you've got to stir the whole time so the milk doesn't curdle. Then you add sugar to taste, a bit of vanilla and a pat of butter. Chill and serve sprinkled with cinnamon. Also good for breakfast :)

You are all so helpful! I really liked the cookie idea so I made some and put them in the freezer, but I'm going to make something else from this thread too - they all look so good I'll have to decide what. There can never be too much dessert with my family. Maybe we should just skip Christmas dinner completely and go straight to dessert.

There are very few among us who would argue with that suggestion, Kelleybean! :D
Happy Christmas to you, hon!

We really do have some kind of weird food thing going on! It happens that I am making a ham, rib roast, and green beans with almond butter sauce (among other things).

So, what do you think we should make tonight? lol
