Something Sweet That Doesn't Have Pumpkin In It

Recommended Posts

I am already making a pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving but I'm looking for an idea for another dessert that doesn't contain pumpkin or cream cheese. We have more than one family function to attend on Thursday and lets face it the cheesecake won't last and even if it does there is only so much cheesecake one can eat in a day. I would prefer something fairly simple as I will be transporting a lot of stuff already to my family dinners. Thanks for any ideas!

Here's the apple crisp recipe from the eating gluten free website:

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Apple Base:

3-4 large granny smith apples

3-4 large golden delicious apples

1/3 c. packed brown sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

Topping:

1 c. quinoa flakes (available at Good Earth)

1/4 c. featherlight mix (found on the main recipe page)

1 c. packed brown sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 c. margarine or butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel, core, slice apples. Mix apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spread in a 9X13 pan. Combine topping ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix with fingers until well mixed. Sprinkle topping over apples. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with cool whip or icecream.

Now that I posted it, I think I might just have to make some!

Something even better than apple crisp is Raspberry Cran-Apple Crisp! Follow the same recipe, EXCEPT, leave out about 1/3 of the apples and substitute frozen raspberries (thaw before cooking) and half a package of cranberries. Guaranteed yummy!

Or the cheaters version: just plain baked apples (basically, just the apple pie filling; it's the best part of the pie anyway :D )

Hey! I was going to say baked apples! :angry::lol:

Add 1/8 tsp. cloves to the apple combo in the apple crisp recipe . . . and just skip the topping.

Another REALLY good dessert is peach-raspberry cobbler. I made a bunch this summer (gluten free, of course) and took batches to two of my neighbors . . . they all loved it. But then I was sorry I'd given it all away because I ran out of peaches and couldn't make any more for myself!

I would suggest Lemon Meringue but I don't have gluten-free receipe and I am not sure if My-T-Fine or other boxed powder filling is gluten-free. Anyone know?


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

This is the recipe our family loves. Another option to make it more festive is to add some fresh cranberries. Hope you enjoy!

Apple Crisp

7 large apple, cored and sliced

1 cup gluten-free flour mix

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

½ cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350*. Put apples in a buttered 9x9 baking dish. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon. Add melted butter and mix well. Pour topping evenly over apples. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until apples are crisp tender.

You can also make a piecrust from walnuts and dates. You put two cups of each into a food processor and process until chunky, not smooth. Then you press it into a pie or tart pan. Refrigerate. Then you just add whatever -- in my case, very thinly sliced apples, raisins, apple juice, etc....in order to make apple pie. You can cook all the stuff down, or put it in raw and have a raw apple pie.

I admit I have yet to do this (don't want the apples to brown for Thursday)...but I'm making the crust today and the filling tomorrow morning.

Good luck.

I found a recipe for a Rhubarb torte...and for some reason, I've been craving it since. Don't know if it's any good, but here's the recipe anyway, if this strikes your fancy:

From Mierelle (on the gluten-free delphi forum)

RHUBARB TORTE

2 C. gluten-free cornflake crumbs

2 T. sugar

1/2 C. margarine

4 C. fresh or frozen rhubarb

1 C. sugar

3 C. cold milk

1 C. water

1 small box gluten-free strawberry gelatin

2 C. Cool Whip® or Dream Whip

2 C. gluten-free miniature marshmallows

2 small boxes gluten-free instant vanilla pudding

Melt the margarine over low heat. Remove and stir in graham cracker crumbs and 2 tablespoons

sugar. Mix well and press into a 9 x 13-inch greased pan, pressing crumbs on bottom and about

1/2-inch up side of the pan. Bake at 325ºF for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Put sliced rhubarb, one cup water and the one cup of sugar in a 2-quart saucepan. Cook for 5 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin. Cool. Mix together the Cool Whip and marshmallows. Set aside. When rhubarb mixture is cool; spread it on the baked, cool crust. Next spread the Cool Whip mixture on top of the rhubarb. Mix the instant vanilla pudding and the milk. Beat until smooth. Gently pour on top of the Cool Whip layer. Refrigerate about 4 hours or overnight.

4 C rice flour

4 C tapioca flour

4 C Cornstarch

4 Tbs potato flour

I love the featherlight mix and I found a store her locally that sells the premade Authentic foods kind. Featherlight works amazingly well for frying chicken and it actually stays much crispier than reagular flour when cooked in a little olive oil.

And for all of you who posted these wonderful ideas.. my DH is sitting her drooling over the ideas. He said I need to start baking more often, lol.
