You might be surprised to learn that Key Lime Pie with Ginger Crust is not green. The expected green or not, this recipe from Gluten-Free Spinner is simply stunning and reading her description will tell you that it’s also just as divine as it appears to be. Mary uses some ready-made gluten-free products in conjunction with whole food ingredients to create a classic Key Lime Pie. She tells us, “I crush ginger snap cookies with finely chopped pecans which pairs beautifully with the tart key lime filling. I make it a little wetter than a regular cookie crust so it’s moist yet crisp…so very good.” No doubt that last part is an understatement.
Traditional Angel Food Cake is such a delightful dessert on its own, but there are some of us who think that adding chocolate makes just about any recipe MUCH better. I see you’re nodding your head! So when I saw Lynn’s (Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures) recipe for gluten-free Chocolate Angel Food Cake, I knew I had to save it for future reference. Make it because it for National Angel Food Cake Day (October 10), a special occasion like a loved one’s birthday, when you want to turn on the oven to warm up the house, when you have used egg yolks in another recipe and need to use the egg whites you set aside, or make it because it’s simply a day you deserve cake (every day?). Oh, and this recipe is naturally dairy free, so even more of you can enjoy this cake!
Are you a fan of Andes Candy? You know the ones, right? Those delightful mints that are made for after dinner. If so, I bet you’ll absolutely love these Chocolate Mint Doughnuts with Andes Candy from Alea at Premeditated Leftovers. Alea says, “These are one amazing dessert for the serious mint lover.” She also goes on to give you some specific, but simple instructions that must be followed. Like not eating any of the candy from the bag once it’s opened. Ha! How did she know that might be a problem? The candy is used in both the donut batter and the glaze, so you really must listen this time. Well, unless you bought an extra bag. My mom would do that!
