One Good Dessert Recipe

Recommended Posts

OK you have all been wonderful with help and suggestions. I need to dive in with the baking. Can you offer some fail safe dessert recipes for me? I need to bring a dessert to a family function and I would like to eat it for a change.

thanks,

I love this one, perfect mix of sweet and salty!

PRETZEL JELLO DESSERT

1 stick melted butter

1 1/2 c. crushed gluten-free pretzels

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese

1 lg. container Cool Whip

1 c. sugar

1 (6 oz.) pkg. strawberry Jello

1 lg. pkg. frozen strawberries (I use no-sugar slices)

Mix melted butter, pretzels, and 1/2 cup sugar together and press into 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake 6 minutes at 350 degrees. Dissolve Jello in 2 cups boiling water and add frozen strawberries. Let gel. Combine cream cheese, Cool Whip, and 1/2 cup sugar; put on top of crumbs. When Jello is starting to set, pour over cheese layer and refrigerate until firm.

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert is very good. Here's a similar one with layers of whipped cream, cream cheese filling and pudding. Even the gluten eaters that I served it to liked it.

Go to kill.the.gluten and try the recipe for homemade brownies. The are the best! No kidding!! Follow the directions exactly but you can sub choc chips for the chunks. I used real butter. They list tips. Don't try to cut them until they cool. I read somewhere to cut brownies with a plastic knife. I think it works better than metal. Prob b/c the knife heats up and makes the brownies sticky. They are very ooey and gooey and chocolatey. Their web site has other good recipes and desserts, also lots of colored pics of the food. Celiacs need something special and these brownies are great.

Also here are 2 good cakes: recipezaar #209764 and 174346. They are One Bowl Chocolate Cake and an Apple cake. Be sure to read the reviews too. One day I made them both and I think I liked the apple cake better. I was suprised b/c I really love chocolate.

People at my Celiac's Support Group on Saturday said this was the best cake ever. One lady said she took it to a party and everyone ate her gluten-free flan cake and didnt want the other desserts:

When I am in the mood for something sweet (most of the time), I make a version of the old standby rice-krispie treat. I use what ever gluten-free cereal I have on hand. I like the Erewhon brown rice the best, I add chopped almonds, chopped walnuts, raisins, coconut, chocolate chips, or whatever else sounds good to me at the time. I cut them up and wrap in plastic wrap to freeze and have ready whenever I need one. Or two. Or three.

Land O Lakes has some nice gluten-free recipes, the marble cake is yummy.

My favorite gluten-free dessert is choc chip cookies, just use the tollhouse recipe and replace the flour with Bette H featherlight flour mix..to die for lol
