Pamela's Cheesecake

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just got the email from Pamelas Products. They have these scrumptious looking cheesecakes, Raspberry chocolate, hazelnut, chocolate with fudge, NY style. But the price is $49.51 through Amazon--way out of my budget for a cake. :(

Why would they have them priced so high? I won't even buy the cake from QVC that costs over $40 and it was huge.

8 raspberry chocolate, 3 inch size, will cost about $64. Pricey, but these would make a very nice wedding dessert, while the rest of the guests eat something similar with wheat. And I guess this isn't much more than a dessert at a restaurant....

See....I'm justifying the cost because they look sooooo good.

Do you need these already prepared? Cheescake recipes have been easier to convert to gluten free. (I would use the Pamela's cookies.) :P

I agree. In many cheesecake recipes, the only gluten is in the crust. Gluten free cookies of almost any type could be used. I think I've seen the suggestion to just press coconut into a pan and toast it to make a crust for cheesecake. I've used gluten free ginger snaps and gluten-free shortbread cookies. My attempt with the coconut was less successful cosmetically but still tasted good.

We bake things like that without a crust at all. I use small custard cups and a water bath to keep it tender and moist. That said, I never liked pie crust in my gluten eating days anyway so it wasn't a big change for us.

When you have 4 in the family that need to be gluten-free, there is a lot of baking and cooking going on.

Sometimes it's just plain nice to buy something already made. I'm just getting tired of baking--I'm a cook. It's always been a lifetime motto for me that you can be either a good cook or a good baker, but not both.

I say this as I'm baking bread, cooking chili and making a meatloaf with scalloped potatoes. :P

I agree with you at some point or some days we just need a break from baking & cooking! I cook for 8 most days , 4 gluten-free & the others usually also eat gluten-free depending on what is being prepared... I'm the only one who cooks so I understand!!!!!

Pamela's cheesecakes are wonderful so is Moondance Cheesecakes. Both about the same pricing only you can buy a single serving from Moondance for $3.95!Still very pricey. I usually make my own everything but as time goes on I find I want as much as I can afford gluten-free ready made! But it has to be the best....I still do school lunches, & bake quite a lot.....

I think we all miss the convienent factor ......

I still remeber getting Everybody Eats rolls for a Christmas present!!! I could have pigged out & eaten all 12 rolls at once I was so happy but I ate one at a time.... It was the first roll I enjoyed... In fact I even cried a little! gluten-free gets better every day....

Order a cheesecake for a special event in your life,,,, you deserve it!!!!!

I thought for sure they must give you more than one for that price, maybe a case of 3. But I checked and it was just one. Shocking! They must not be going for economy of scale with the big ones. Even the case of 8 of the three inchers for $63.84 which basically works out to $8 each is a bit shocking.

I agree with splurging and being able to just order something. Sometimes after all the cooking and baking I'm just too tired to enjoy eating it. :rolleyes:

So I make a double batch and freeze when I can to get instant gratification of a nice treat. :D
