    Silky Chocolate Pie (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This recipe comes to us from Thomas Schaefer.

    Ingredients:
    6 tablespoons sugar (granulated)
    ¼ cup plus l tablespoon of cornstarch
    8 large egg yolks
    l quart of whole or 2% milk
    8 ounces semisweet chocolate chopped
    4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut up
    1 – 10 inch baked gluten-free pie shell
    1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
    2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
    l teaspoon vanilla
    Chocolate shavings to scatter over the top of the whipped cream

    Directions:
    Whisk sugar and cornstarch together in bowl. Add the egg yolks and beat high speed until thick and pale about 4 minutes (I like to use a electric hand mixer for this). Put the l quart of milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil whisking often over medium heat. Whisk 1/3 of the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture then add this to the rest of the milk. I do this off the heat, then return to the heat and cook over medium heat until it thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat and add the chocolate and butter that has been cut up. Whisk until it is melted and smooth. Pour into the baked pie shell. Cover carefully and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.

    Two to three hours before serving, whip cream, sugar and vanilla to stiff peaks. Smooth over the pudding and scatter with chocolate shavings.

Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    After dinner at a local Mediterranean restaurant, the waitress suggested my friend and I try the farmer's market fresh lemon soufflé for dessert. What followed was nothing short of culinary bliss, with ooh's and ahh's over the sweet, airy, lemony, delight. Realizing that most soufflé's contain a bit of flour, I resolved to replicate the joy in a gluten-free version. I've done a...

    This recipe is gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free. I've combined fresh apples with KIND Healthy Grains Clusters that is filled with 100% whole grains like gluten-free oats, quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat. My clients who have young children love this recipe because it's easy and 1/2 store bought, 1/2 fresh! Enjoy.

    I’m having homemade pizza, garlic bread and salad!  I get my baguettes and pitas from MyBreadBakery.com and make them at home.  They are gluten-free, soy free, egg free, dairy free and nut free!  Awesome!
    Connie gave some good advice, the dairy issue is very common as the enzymes to break it down come from the villi which celiac disease destroys, Oats, 10% of celiacs react just the same and most oats are contaminated anyway. Here is some info...
    Hello Bshake, sorry to hear your daughter is struggling. Sometimes celiacs have additional intolerances apart from gluten. In many cases, these intolerances are temporary and resolve once healing has occurred. However, to speed healing and...
