We're Moving

The Gluten Free Gourmet will become inactive at the end of February.  The new blog is The Lazy Gastronome.    The new blog is not a gluten free blog, but many of the recipes will be either gluten free or tell you how to make it gluten free.

I'll be putting together an eCookBook of the recipes here, most likely available at the end of the year.  Join the new blog to stay updated of it's release.  It will be free for the first 30 days.

It's been a pleasure creating these recipes and having all of you as my guests.  Thank you for your support!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Tarts



The Crust
2 cups of nuts
¼ cup brown sugar
4 Tablespoons of butter
2 Tablespoons of cream
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Put all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until all ingredients are well blended.  Divide into four and press gently into four tart pans



The Custard

½  12-oz can evaporated milk
1 eggs
3/8 cup sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons cream sherry

Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. 

Pour into each of the tart shells. 



Place the tart pans on a cookie sheet in the center of the oven.   Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the custard is firm and when poked with a knife, the knife comes out clean.  Make sure you don’t cook it too long.  The custard will be dry and the color too dark.

Serve warm or cold with whipping cream topped with just a touch of fresh grated nutmeg.

Apples with Gluten Free Salted Caramel




Nothing says fall like caramel apples! And I absolutely love salted caramel.   But when you are gluten free, you have to be careful of commercially make caramel, much of it has some form of wheat in it.  So I experimented and found that it isn’t so hard to make!

It's crock pot week here at the gluten free gourmet - and it's National Dessert day!  So here is a recipe that honors both -

Simmered low and slow for a rich, sweet applesauce - eat alone or with some ice cream!
