4 Decorative Pie Crusts for Gluten Free Pie Dough

I'm going to be honest here: I spend a lot of time thinking about pie. I think about different types of fillings and fun new combinations, I think about how to optimize the deliciousness, and I think about how to bring something new to the crust game. Even the most simple pie can be absolutely stunning, and it can be as easy as a few cut outs or a little crimping on the crust! One of the absolute most simple [...]

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

Initially, I wanted to call these, Leave-Me-Alone-These-Are-Mine Bars, but that seemed rude. When finally, I could use my words again and was willing to share, my family and I agreed that that we would be making these again ASAP! What could be better than an amazingly chocolaty, perfectly chewy brownie paired with a fudgy peanut butter-y layer (think reese's peanut butter cups) and topped with even more chocolate? Nothing. Except maybe that it's also gluten free! A quick note on the brownie [...]

Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies

Christmas isn't Christmas without decorating cookies! This year I've slowly been converting all my favorite childhood recipes to gluten free versions and this Christmas gingerbread cookies were on the list. We rolled these out to about an 1/8 of an inch thick and decorated with royal icing. The great thing about this recipe is that the dough is firm and easy to work with and the cookies hold their shape beautifully while being baked! Enjoy! In a pinch a plastic sandwich bag works [...]

Gluten Free Gingerbread House

Happy Holidays from all of us at Columbia Gorge Gluten Free! It's that time of year again. Time for wreaths, Christmas trees and gingerbread houses. This year, because - let's face it - it's hard to find a gluten free gingerbread house kit, I decided to get creative and make my own! With some geometry and a little...bordering on a lot of "gingerbread house glue" it was a success! I made my own gingerbread house pattern and used skittles and spice drops for [...]

Gluten Free Pumpkin Nutella Bars

I’ve been on a pumpkin dessert kick lately and with the great pumpkin shortage of 2015 behind us (or is it?)…I decided to continue on my merry way. I’ve always been a fan of pumpkin pie and am continually trying out new gluten free pie crust recipes (as witnessed by the amount of pie crust pins on my pie crust Pinterest board), but this week I wanted to try something different. After all, pumpkin pie isn’t super portable in lunch bags and [...]
