5 Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes, From Apple Cider Cakes to Pumpkin Cookies
Between the mountains of mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, and mac and cheese on my plate, holiday meals are always hard on my stomach. I'm really up for a challenge come the dessert course — especially since gluten is usually the star of that show.
Historically, I have to excuse myself from the table early after a bite or two of Grandma's signature pumpkin pie, but this year, I'm not letting my gluten sensitivity stand in the way of dessert. Instead, I'm bringing these gluten-free recipes to the table so I can indulge in seasonal sweets without paying for it later.
