Gluten free no bake pumpkin praline cheesecake recipe


Published on

There are a couple things I do every year on Thanksgiving after the food has been eaten, the table cleared and that last crumb of pie licked off the plates – first is to convince the hubby to do the dishes and secondly, I put a pot of dried beans on to soak. It’s not that I have anything against gluten free turkey noodle soup but after all the traditional, American flavors of Thanksgiving I am ready to spice things up! Chipotle Turkey Bean Soup is the answer.

Gluten free no bake pumpkin praline cheesecake recipe

  1. 1. Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen…. the Holidays are right around the corner! The need for quick go-to gluten free recipes for desserts abound with an increase in special family meals, entertaining and pot luck parties. Not to worry, I have your back with this no bake, pumpkin praline cheesecake. Seriously, thischeesecake is so quick and easy that even the busiest, most baking challenged person in the universe has no excuse to skip dessert. Oh, and did I mention that it tastes divine? And that it has the appropriate amount of “WOW factor” required for the Holidays?If you happen to be a person who has hours upon hours to spend roasting pumpkins, making homemade gluten free graham crackers and churning your own butter then you might want to just skip on to other gluten free recipes. If, however, you are like the rest of the planet who realizes there are times when using great convenience products like Kinnikinnick’s gluten free graham style crumbs (thank you Kinnikinnick) and canned pumpkins are not only OK but necessary (hello… Holidays!) then by all means read on and enjoy! Since the Holidays are jam packed with calories as well as fun festivities, I make myversion a bit on the lighter side by using light whipped topping (aka Lite Cool Whip)and low fat cream cheese but if that isn’t an issue then go for it and use real whipped cream and full fat cream cheese.
