Sweet and spicy, tender and springy gingerbread …it’s a traditional recipe for any time of the year. But, if you dress it up a little with some decorator’s red sugar, it takes on a more festive air. This gluten-free recipe is easy to make and frugal, too, but it also is wonderful for serving your family and your guests.
My husband Al loves apple pie!
His mother made apple pie for him for as long as he can remember.
She would often make a single-crust pie with the apples cut in halves and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, then dotted with tiny clumps butter that would melt and flow through the whole pie while it baked in the oven. I remember her pies’ wonderful aroma, texture, and flavor from BGF (Before Gluten-Free) days. I and everyone else in the family absolutely loved her wonderful creations!
My mother-in-law, Mary, sure knew how to bake a pie that vanished and this recipe is no exception. I is a family tradition … Mary called it a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Tart… and the secret …
My Chocolate Cream Pie almost always brings a smile to the face of everyone I serve it to… kids and grownups alike. Not only does the memory of its rich chocolaty aroma and creamy texture excite the eaters’ anticipation but its rich, delicious flavor can become a chocoholic’s dream.
Even in a week full of favorite dishes like Thanksgiving week has, easy chocolate dessert recipes have their place…right on the table. And my chocolate cream pie definitely found its place in my family’s meal plan this year.
This delicious gluten-free chocolate pie recipe will surprise you with how easy it is.
King Arthur Flour sent me a box of their new Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix to try. In the past I have tried a number of their other gluten-free mixes with very satisfying results, so I was looking forward to seeing how the yellow cake would turn out.
At first I couldn’t make up my mind whether to make cupcakes or a two-layer cake. The mix will make two 8” or 9” rounds layers, or 24 cupcakes. I finally decided on the cupcakes.
Making them was as easy as a mix can be….
This sweet, dense cake with apples, cherries and nuts – not to mention the raisins and spices that flavor it – has been a holiday favorite of ours as long as I can remember. When I started cooking gluten-free, it was among the first cakes I tried to adapt. My Aunt Mac could probably have told the difference, but this recipe of hers converted very well. In fact, when I bake it for a general crowd, it disappears fast.
With the maraschino cherries, you’ll have…
Apples and spice go together so well! Just about all they need is a little something to wrap around them while they bake…like some pastry crust. I’ve made a lot of gluten-free apple pies, but none of them were any better than this galette.
