You Can Continue To Have Delicious Desserts With Gluten Free Flour Some individuals would like to cut gluten from their diet for health reasons while others have to due to a gluten intolerance like Celiac Disease; either way, one thing is for sure - old fashioned desserts will be missed. Finding something sweet or sticky to enjoy can be a real challenge when you totally remove gluten from the diet. It is possible to meet your gluten free needs while savoring some of the good things in life with a non-gluten based flour. Bring back the sweet, yummy, gooey goodness that you need in your life with these three ideas for gluten free desserts that use gluten free flour. Hamantash A traditional Jewish treat, Hamantash, is a small triangle-shaped pastry usually filled with a jelly or poppy seed filling. This dessert can be easily made with a special flour blend that does not include gluten and is delicious for just about any occasion. You can get creative with assorted fillings if you would like to put your own spin on these pastry cookies. Add your own favorite pudding or custard if you would like to go out on a limb or try filling it with your mom's homemade preserves. This recipe complies with your gluten-free standards while still returning the joy and creative vibes you've always enjoyed when baking. Peach Crumble With the sweetness and sass of a traditional peach pie, you won’t believe how easy and satisfying a gluten-free peach crumble can be. Starting with fresh cut, juicy peaches and creating a simple syrup of cinnamon, sugar, and a little citrus juice, you've got a dessert base that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. For the added crunch on top of your crumble, use gluten free flour, softened butter, a little bit of brown sugar, and a pinch of nutmeg. Spread this crumble mixture on top of your peaches and then pop it into the oven to bake to perfection. Once again, this recipe can be switched up to meet your personal sweet tooth. Try utilizing your preferred fruit base, or getting imaginative with the crumbly topping; if allergies and health needs permit, add in some of your favorite chopped or diced nuts. We would recommend pecans, walnuts, or almonds. Gooey, Hot and Cold Brownie This recipe suggestion will be well worth it if you have got an exceptional baking ability and would like to take on a homemade dessert that requires a little bit more time and effort. Mix up a batch of your favorite brownie batter using non-gluten flour and a heavy hand on the chocolate. Using individual serving dishes or muffin tins, pour the batter and bake at a temperature that's a bit higher than usual. Take them out of the oven when the top of the brownies look lightly crisp. The idea here is to cook the brownies just enough that they're heated through, getting rid of any salmonella in the eggs, and leaving a nice cake-like outside. Inside these tasty treats you should discover a warm, chocolaty gooey middle of chocolate lava. For some extra pizazz, top this sticky treat with some gluten-free vanilla or mint frozen yogurt and drizzle with warm fudge or creamy caramel. Even whipped cream or sprinkles can add some extra flare to a dessert.
