Someone posted about cheesecake a couple of weeks ago. In response to that post, I mentioned that there is a gluten-free bakery in Philadelphia that makes great cheesecake. They can ship their products, which would be the only option for you. Their URL is:

My only relationship to them is as a customer.

This isn't quite the same, but Philadelphia Cream Cheese brand makes cheesecake filling in a tub. It's not bad, and it's gluten-free.

I served that for Thanksgiving and topped with home made cranberry sauce. Not, the best, but it's good for a fix.

I made this recipe - it was very good. Not dense, but still yummy and easy to make. I just buttered the pie pan it came right out. I topped it with cherry pie filling (gluten-free). :P

Baked Cheesecake Classic

Prep Time: 25 minutes minutes

Ingredients

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

dash salt

2 eggs

Topping

1 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

1. In large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar on medium speed of electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and salt. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until just combined after each addition.

2. Place crust on baking sheet. Pour in cream cheese mixture. Bake at 325°F about 25 minutes or until knife inserted into filling 1 inch from edge comes out clean.

3. In small bowl combine sour cream, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Carefully spread over cheesecake. Bake at 325°F for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Exactly. A few spoonfuls of that with a little fruit = instant dessert.

for a crust, a lot of times the "recipes" call for crushed up graham crackers (and then you add some butter), etc.

I used gluten free cookies...like midels ginger snaps or pamelas shortbread, and crush them up.

At Walmart Super-Centers they have a gluten-free Cheescake single serving in a small box, made by "Missy's" - it is labeled Gluten Free! What it really is, is just regular cheesecake filling without any crust. It is delicious and exactly what you are looking for. They also have a "sugar free" version which my husband (diabetic) says tastes "so-so".....

I ate 4 of the regular gluten-free ones over the past 4 days with no problems.

They were in the front of the store against the deli counter - where you get the gourmet breads, etc.

I get the Jello No Bake Cheese cake and just throw away the crust mix. You just add milk. I pour it into the aluminum baking cups (makes about 15) and chill them and then eat out of the cup with a spoon. I also made them for dessert for Thanksgiving dinner and topped them with Cherry Pie filling.

How did you know for sure that the Jello Cheesecake was gluten-free? I love that stuff and had never thought about eating it without the crust. Can't tell you how many of those I made when my boys were growing up and put a can of cherry pie filling on top. Great memories. I also am going to check out the Missy's in the deli section of WalMart.....aren't they great to mark so much of their stuff gluten free???

They list the Jello cheesecake ingredients seperate from the crust ingredients. (I also throw out the crust). I get the gluten free graham cracker crust mix and put the jello cheesecake in it. It is yummy!

    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse. 
    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
