    Cranberry Nut Dessert Pie (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Cranberry Nut Dessert Pie

    This recipe comes to us from Harold Wolofsky.

    1 Cup of gluten-free flour mix*
    1 Cup of sugar
    ½ teaspoon of xanthan gum
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    2 Cups fresh cranberries (could use Frozen)
    ½ cup chopped walnuts
    ½ cup melted butter or margarine
    2 eggs, beaten
    ½ teaspoon almond extract

    • In a bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt and xanthan gum.
    • Add cranberries and nuts; toss to coat.
    • Stir in the butter, eggs and extract.
    • Spread into a greased 9 inch pie plate. If the mixture is too loose add a little more flour.
    • Bake at 350F for about 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center come out clean.

    Good as is or serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream for that special dessert.

    Garfava Bean Flour 2/3 part
    Sorghum Flour 1/3 part
    Cornstarch 1 part

    This is a staple on my holiday desert table and has been for about 8 years. My celiac daughter prefers it to the pumpkin and apple pies with the gluten free crusts. I love that this isn't an adaptation of a traditional gluten recipe, but one designed from the start to be gluten free.

     

    It works great with a millet/brown rice/cornstarch blend for the flours, as well as with any of the newer gluten-free all purpose blends.
