No-bake Gluten Free Raspberry Cheesecake in a Jar

My husband has been having a huge sweet tooth lately and has been asking me to try new desserts. He saw a recipe for a Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar and wanted to know if I could do my magic and make it food friendly for our family. He even went as far and bought a basket of raspberries too!

Nevertheless… I worked my magic and came up with a pretty good recipe I think. And it was tasty too!!

Gluten Free Pizzelle Cookies


I have had my pizzelle maker for years and today was the first time I decided to try it out and so glad I did!!

I knew the kids have been wanting ice cream. And since it was a warm spring day I decided I wanted to make these delicate waffle cookies and see if I could make them into ice cream cones.

HOWEVER, I guess if you don’t have a cone roller it isn’t that simple — so I improvised instead, LOL!

Nevertheless, while the pizzelles are still hot you can form them into dessert cups, cannoli shapes, or cones and fill them with anything you want.

And depending on the ingredients and method of preparation the cookies can be crispy or soft and chewy.

Gluten Free Rolo® stuffed Cookies

My husband came home from work last week saying a customer had given him cookies that were stuffed with Rolo Candy and wanted me to see if I could make them. I said yeah I’ll look in to it.

Anyhow, looks like it is a basic chocolate chip cookie where the chips are replaced with the Rolo candy. Soooooo, the challenge was on!

I took out my best gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe and omitted the chocolate chips and went from there.

Anyhow, the cookies came out soft, chewy and oh so yummy!

Gluten Free Chewy Cake Bars

I have no idea why it is called chewy cake, it is more like a cookie bar than anything else. Nevertheless, my husband has  been hinting for me to make these bars for awhile now and I finally gave in, LOL.

These bars are really for the sweet-tooth-a-holic…. it has one pound of brown sugar in them and are so good you can’t just eat one and you’ll probably be eating the crumbs up as well.
