Gluten-free No Bake Banana Split Pie Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

  • 2 cups gluten-free graham cracker crumbs (Or you can purchase a gluten-free graham cracker pie crust, and eliminate the cracker crumbs and butter.)
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 16 ounces dessert whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
  • 2-3 large bananas, sliced
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained well
  • ½ cup chopped nuts
  • Chocolate syrup
  • 8 – 10 maraschino cherries, patted dry

Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and press firmly into a 9 inch deep dish pie pan. (If you use a pre-made pie crust, you can skip these steps.)

Beat the cream cheese with a mixer until smooth.

Combine one third of the whipped topping with the cream cheese, mixing well. Spread onto the crust.

Top with sliced bananas, strawberries, and pineapple, in that order.

 

 

Spread the remaining whipped topping on top of the pie.

 

Refrigerate for 4 hours or up to a day ahead.

Before serving sprinkle the chopped nuts on top of the pie, drizzle with chocolate syrup and place maraschino cherries on top.

Enjoy!

Gluten-free Black Forest Cheesecake Bars Recipe

By Sandy Kirby Quandt

This delicious gluten-free dessert recipe needs to be made at least 3 hours ahead of time. It can be made up to 3 days before eaten, if need be.

  • 1 17-20 oz pkg Gluten-free brownie mix, plus whatever ingredients the mix requires
  • 12 oz pkg frozen cherries, thawed, and roughly chopped
  • 5 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup very cold heavy cream
  • 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice

Heat oven according to brownie mix directions. Lightly coat a 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.

Prepare brownie batter according to directions. Fold in half the cherries, and transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan. Bake and cool according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine 2 Tbs sugar, 1 Tbs water, and the remaining cherries and any juices.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring, until the cherries break down and the liquid turns into a thick syrup, 10-12 minutes. If the syrup is not thickening, you can stir in 1 teaspoon of corn starch.

Transfer to a bowl to cool, then refrigerate until ready to use.

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and remaining 3 Tbs sugar in a medium bowl on medium, until smooth. Gradually add the cream, then increase the speed and beat until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Beat in the lemon juice.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cooled brownie. Add the cherry syrup topping and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Enjoy!
