Pumpkin pie, apple caramel pie, pumpkin roll with cream cheese frosting...... Do you miss it? Well, this year you won’t have to.
We have a lot of experience, making all sorts of allergy-sensitive desserts, some of which comes from personal experience. Most people know from our previous blog that I am allergic to flour, my mother is also gluten sensitive. So after 15 years of perfecting our flour-full recipes, we had to find a gluten free flour that worked well without sacrificing taste or texture. Of course we still make fabulous pastries with regular flour, but it was important for us to have really tasty gluten free options for our clients.
After a lot of trial and error, we found a great flour product that works really well with most of our recipes and is certified gluten free, and safe for celiacs. It also happens to be safe for people with peanut allergies. The pie crust is flakey, crisp and buttery. The only down side is that is doesn’t hold intricate shape, so no fancy design, but it looks nice and it has all the flavor and texture that you would expect from a quality pie crust. Of course most pie fillings are gluten free, so we have a wide selection to offer.
Our gluten free cake recipes probably impress people the most, especially our chiffon cake recipe which doesn’t require a lot of flour to begin with. This cake comes out so fluffy and moist with an excellent crumb. Our gluten free , pumpkin chiffon roll with cream cheese frosting is light, creamy and just what you’ve been craving. Honestly, when I make the gluten free chiffon cake for my family, they don’t believe me that it’s gluten free. So for holidays and especially birthdays, there’s no reason why you should have to be with out cake.
Other gluten free items that we recommend are cookies, brownies, cake pops, whoppie pies, shortbread bars, tarts....... and many more options.
Of course let’s not forget all the awesome desserts that are naturally gluten free because they contain no flour to begin with... French macarons, flourless chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, rice crispy treats, pastry cream with fruit, crustless cheesecake, rice pudding......
So now your mouth is watering but you are skeptical about price, I don’t blame you. I went into a bakery once and paid $7 for a small, disappointing, gluten free cupcake. A lot of bakers will really up charge the gluten free items assuming that we are desperate and will pay anything. I don’t agree that we should be financially taken advantage of just because of our allergies and intolerances.
Yes of course gluten free flour does cost more, but it’s not made out of diamonds. We do add a small up- charge to gluten free desserts, but maybe a few dollars for a pie and $.50 more per cupcake, certainly not 3 times the cost.
See the menu below and contact us if you are interested in having any gluten free desserts this thanksgiving. Even if it’s not for you, a lot of gluten free people would be so grateful to receive as a gift. Believe me I know from first hand experience, sometimes we are starved to just to be a part of everyone sharing dessert.
Now we don’t have to be left out, and we won’t be disappointed!,
