Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Covered Pretzel Crust

A tall glass of milk or a strong cup of coffee is all that you need to accompany this Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Covered Pretzel Crust.   When people ask me what is the one thing I miss most since going gluten free, my answer is always “Convenience”. If you want soft garlic bread […]

Gluten-free Saskatoon Pie | The Baking Beauties

Gluten Free Saskatoon Pie {Prairie Fruit Cookbook review}

  First off, you might be wondering what a “Saskatoon” is. If you look at the picture, you’ll notice they look similar to blueberries. They are small dark purple berries, picked the same way blueberries are, but they have a different taste. I’ve read someone describing them as having more of an apple flavour – […]

Gluten Free Classic Strawberry Shortcake

  Summer’s here and that means it’s time for a trip to the berry patch. As a child, my mom would lug me, my brother and an armful of empty ice cream pails to our local U-Pick strawberry field. It was messy business crawling along the straw-packed rows of ripe berries. It was impossible to […]

My Grandma was really good at making them though, and she’d whip up a batch if they were coming over for supper, filled […]

Gluten Free Blueberry Cream Cheese Tart

This is a great recipe. The flavour of the nut crust, the cream cheese layer, and the homemade blueberry sauce is AMAZING! I do think I would do 1 1/2 times the crust though, for the pan that I used, so that it would be a little thicker. I also think I would up the […]

Gluten Free Creamy Lime and Coconut Tarts

This is yet another entry from my attempts at becoming a finalist in the Real Women of Philadelphia contest. I absolutely LOVED dessert week. I could have made 2-3 desserts per day. There are just 2 problems with that though…that would require a lot of cream cheese, and break my grocery-shopping bank, and I’d have […]

The Ultimate Gluten Free Cranberry Squares

Alright, I admit. These Gluten Free Cranberry Squares – they aren’t the pretties. They won’t be winning any beauty pageants on the dessert table. But, if that’s the case, count yourself lucky, because they are DELICIOUS (more for you!)! I was shocked. I had baked this pan of cranberry squares, hoping for something new to […]
