It's hard to believe that Christmas is so fast approaching!! It's time to start making and freezing your favorite Christmas desserts! If you're cooking gluten free these days then these are for you! Here are 20 gluten free Christmas dessert recipes I know you'll love because we sure do!
Gluten free baking often gets a bad rap and I understand why. Gluten free desserts are often dry or crumbly and that's not pleasant to eat. And sometimes they just don't taste that good because the substitute ingredients weren't right.
However, so many desserts are naturally gluten free. And some convert to gluten free much easier than others. One of my secrets is using Cup4Cup (gluten free flour mix) in a non-gluten free recipe because it takes the hassle out of baking with substitutions. Plus it ends up being cheaper because you don't have to buy a lot of different flours. I've had a lot of success with this. We've tried many different gluten free flour mixes and that's definitely our favorite. A close second is King Arthur Gluten Free Flour which is easy to find in most stores or online.
