Gluten-free Gumdrop Cookie Bar Recipe

Here is a delicious gluten-free Gumdrop Cookie Bar recipe from my childhood. The hardest part of the recipe for me is refraining from eating all the cinnamon and spearmint gumdrops before they make it to the batter. ūüôā

  • 2 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup sliced gumdrops
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Sift and mix together flour, salt, and cinnamon.

Beat eggs, sugar, and milk.

Add dry ingredients to eggs mixture. The batter will be stiff.

Add gumdrops and nuts.

You can cut the gumdrops with kitchen shears, or a sharp knife. Sugar from the gumdrops will make the knife sticky. Dipping it into a glass of warm water helps.

Spread in greased 9 X 11″ pan.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 30 minutes. The top will be cracked.

Enjoy!

I wish you well.

Gluten-free Blueberry Dessert Recipe

This delicious gluten-free blueberry dessert is a tasty way to enjoy summer blueberries.

Blueberry filling:

  • 2 C blueberries (You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. If you want to skip making the filling, use a 16 oz can of blueberry pie filling.)
  • 1 C sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 C water

In a saucepan combine the sugar, cornstarch, and water.

When mixed well and the sugar is dissolved, add the blueberries. Crush them into the mixture.

Cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until blueberries thicken, and the filling boils.

Cool.

Crust:

  • 2 C gluten-free graham crackers crumbs
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/4 C sugar

Mix cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter.

Press to form crust in 9 X 11 dish.

You can save 1/4 C of the mixture to sprinkle on top, if you’d like.

Topping:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 8 oz container whipped topping

Soften the cream cheese. Mix together with milk and topping. Beat well.

Assemble the dessert:

Layer 1/2 of the topping mixture over the crumb crust.

Spread all of the berry filling over that.

Add the remaining topping mix over the berries.

If you saved some of the crumb crust, sprinkle it over the topping.

This should be refrigerated 3-4 hours before serving.

Enjoy!

I wish you well.

Gluten-free Flourless Chocolate Mini Cakes Recipe

This tasty gluten-free flourless chocolate mini cakes recipe is super-simple to make, and oh so good.

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus 2 teaspoons butter, at room temperature, for greasing custard cups
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Confectioners’ sugar, ice cream, berries, or whipped cream for topping

Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Rub eight 1-cup ceramic or glass ramekins or custard cups with the 2 teaspoons of butter. Place these on a baking sheet and set them aside.

Place the 8 tablespoons of butter and the chocolate chips in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Heat, stirring until the chocolate has melted, 3-4 minutes, then remove it from the heat.

Place the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until the eggs are frothy and have almost doubled in size, about 4 minutes.

Add the chocolate mixture a little at a time, beating continuously on low speed or whisking with a wire whisk. (Do not add all the chocolate at one time or the heat of the chocolate will cook the eggs.) The batter will thicken as the chocolate is incorporated.

Divide the batter among the prepared custard cups, spooning about 3/4 cup into each. Put the baking sheet with the cups in the oven.

Bake the cakes until they have risen and the edges are set ,12-15 minutes. (Because the inside of these cakes should have a pudding-like consistency, be careful not to cook them too long.)

Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes.

To serve, run a knife around the edge of each cake and turn it out onto a dessert plate. Add whatever topping you choose, or leave plain. Either way, they are delicious.

Enjoy!
