    Cheesecake is my boyfriend’s favorite dessert too. But like you, I don’t make it too often. Too bad we can’t just eat whatever we want all the time!

    I’m loving all the pumpkin recipes these days. I’ve never heard of a pumpkin cheesecake, but it sounds delicious. I made pumpkin pie from scratch and loved the flavor that using fresh pumpkin gave it.

    Those look just great! And 5 attempts, I don’t think I would have tried again after maybe 2.

    Mmmm…. boy, do I wish I could eat dairy! :) These look so good. What other ways do you help keep your weight where it is besides sugar/gluten-free? I am still struggling with that. I especially have a hard time with portion sizes and saying no and giving my body time to digest before eating more. I guess it’s something we all deal with.

    Anyway, my post is for low-fat but delicious gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free meatloaves and even shows how to make your own ground turkey/chicken. :) And also, linked, is my agave ketchup which is so good! :)

    @Ari-Food Intolerances Cook, @Ari-Food Intolerances Cook, It does take some time to learn what an appropriate portion is for your body. I generally eat 3 meals and 2 snacks – and I don’t snack in between. That is very important. I used to eat all day long. I learned that I wasn’t going to die between meals. Weighing and measuring my food at first really helped me learn what a normal portion was, too.

    When I’m in the kitchen creating a new food and have to do a lot of tasting, I adjust my meals/snacks accordingly. So I might skip a snack or even lunch if I’ve been tasting food all day.

    I also don’t let myself get too hungry. If I go from 8 am to 2 pm and don’t eat at all, I always over eat and then I don’t feel good. If we’re going to be out and about all day I pack a snack or we make time for lunch.

    When I don’t eat sugar & gluten/wheat I don’t get food cravings, either, which makes all the difference.

    I hope that helps!

    I had a totally unexpected and simply indulgent treat come out of my kitchen this afternoon: Caramel Apple Bake (which, in the future, will probably be known as Caramel Apple Bars). Just the right amount of sweetness with no actual sugar added … aside from the bits of caramel which melted through beautifully!

    @karen, I love those moments in my kitchen! I had one, too, while trying to make gingerbread men. More like spicey-cakey cookies so it still needs a little work but I was pleased for a first try. So glad you shared your kitchen moment here.

    No wonder so many people are visting here with all the great stuff going on!! Stunning cheesecakes … perfect me size. ;-) Congrats to Jenn! Phoebe might not label herself gluten free, but I’m sure her beautiful applesauce is. :-) I can identify with her story as I didn’t learn to cook until I was on my own at college. (My dear mom didn’t want anyone to mess up her kitchen. Love her dearly, but true.) Bravo to Phoebe for gardening and canning! Now who doesn’t want an Amazon gift card, but boy would it be hard to give that one away …

    Oh, I tweeted (no idea how to include URL here) and posted. :-)

    this is a great recipe from glutenguide blog that I’ve actually used!

    http://glutenguide.blogspot.com/2006/12/gluten-free-cheesecake-better-than.html

    Gluten Free Cheesecake with Nut Crust Supreme (Cheesecake recipe is from my Aunt Barbara, the crust is adapted from Bette Hagman’s “The Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Dessert”)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Gluten Free Nut Crust Supreme
    2 cups Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking Mix
    ½ cup dark brown sugar
    2/3 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    1 cup finely chopped pecans

    Spray cheesecake pan lightly with vegetable oil spray. In a medium bowl stir together the flour mix and brown sugar. Cut in the butter until fine crumbs form. Stir in the nuts and pat into your pan. The crust will be “crumbly” but will hold together once pressed into the pan. This will be more than enough for one large cheesecake and perhaps for a second smaller pie. Though it tastes so good on it’s own you may just end up eating it!

    Barbara’s Classic Gluten Free Cheesecake
    4 – 8 oz bars of gluten free cream cheese, softened
    1 cup of granulated sugar
    2 eggs
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla

    Mix all of the ingredients with a beater until smooth and pour into the unbaked crust. Place in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

    While that is baking, prepare the topping.

    2 cups gluten free sour cream
    ¾ cup granulated sugar
    ½ teaspoon of gluten free almond extract
    Juice from ½ a lemon

    Mix the topping ingredients in a bowl. After the first 30 minutes of baking, remove the cheesecake and spoon the topping onto the cheesecake. Be careful not to overfill the pan. Return the cheesecake to the oven and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes. You may want to place a piece of foil under the cheesecake just to catch any drippings. Cooking times can vary dramatically depending upon the amount of topping you choose to use. Watch to see when it starts to solidify but don’t let it stay in so long that the crust begins to burn.

    @Christina Stang, I’d bake it in a water bath because it’s a custard…but there’s no reason you can’t. Maybe at 350F? 45 minutes? That’s my guess. You’re the queen of finding new ways to present recipes. Hugs, Christina!

    These look great!! Do you think the gelatin is absolutely necessary? I can’t remember using it for cheesecakes before, is there something that makes it needed in this recipe? I really want to try this with my homemade cream cheese!

    Also – a tip – spread the pumpkin on paper towel or clean rag and let sit – it will absorb some of tthe water in the pumpkin.

    Thanks!!

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Amanda, It’s not a baked cheesecake so you need something to help it set up properly. You can use agar agar – I’ve never tried it with this recipe so I don’t know how it’ll turn out.

    Is there a reason you don’t want to use gelatin?

    Thanks for the tip!
