Gluten Free Christmas Desserts!!


In my previous post I mentioned how gluten free baking has come a long way.  Because of that, you can take almost any recipe, make a couple simple swaps and voila! It’s now gluten free.  I wanted to show you how easy it can be.  With Christmas right around the corner, I’m sure you’re looking for some gluten free Christmas desserts.   I found some that look so good and so easy to make gluten free.

As I mentioned in my last post, when you’re doing gluten free baking, it’s important to use a good quality cup for cup gluten free flour blend.  It really does matter!!

Take this cheesecake for instance.  A couple simple swaps and it’s gluten free.  You’ll need a gluten free flour blend and gluten free graham crackers.  Or, you could use a premade gluten free graham cracker crust.

Candy Cane Cheesecake

For this one, just replace the saltines with a gluten free table cracker.  I like the Schar Gluten Free Table Crackers.

Here you just need some gluten free flour.  Also, be sure to check the package of your white chocolate to see the risk of cross contamination.  I use Bakers White Chocolate Squares.

Once again, with this one you just need to replace the flour with a good quality gluten free flour blend.

This is a fun one for the kids!  Swap out the wheat chex for rice chex and use gluten free pretzels!  Glutino Gluten Free Pretzels.
