Just because you can't eat wheat flour doesn't mean you can't eat Thanksgiving dessert. Pumpkin pie is the traditional Thanksgiving sweet, but we think all of these gluten-free desserts are just as great for Turkey Day. This collection includes classic fall desserts like Pumpkin Flan, as well as a few more adventurous options, such as Buttermilk-Beet Sherbet and gluten-free brownies. Whether you're cooking for an entirely family who's eating gluten-free or just one individual who will be joining your holiday feast, these gluten-free Thanksgiving dessert recipes can help you round out your meal.
The texture of this cake is ethereal—it’s moist and airy, yet filled with rich flavor from the macadamia nuts and almond flour. Keep in mind, if you use our formula for homemade almond flour, you won’t have a gluten-free product. If you want a gluten-free option you can purchase store-bought almond flour—just check the label to make sure the only ingredient listed is almonds. Cool this cake thoroughly before slicing for the best results. This cake will keep for 2 to 3 days, but the sugary crust won’t last more than a day. If you want to substitute hazelnut flour, you can, with similarly spectacular results.
