Gluten-free Thanksgiving Desserts With Nielsen-Massey Vanillas
Steeped in tradition, Thanksgiving dinners are known for turkey carving, sharing words of thanks around the table, and spending time with family.
For a twist on the customary pumpkin pie, personalize holiday menus with gluten-free pumpkin custards and cheesecake that friends and family with sensitive diets can enjoy.
“Thanksgiving is an occasion for loved ones to spend quality time with one another and indulge in delicious food,” says Craig Nielsen, CEO of Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. “Everyone, even those with certain diet preferences, can appreciate our new spins on classic desserts. In these recipes, Nielsen-Massey Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract and Pure Mexican Vanilla Extract add rich sweetness and enhanced flavor to everyone’s favorite fall treat, pumpkin.”
Nielsen-Massey Mexican Pure Vanilla Extract elevates timeless ingredients with nuances of flavor in the Decadent Pumpkin Custards recipe. The sweet and woody notes in the extract complement the blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in these individual custards to create a festive and unforgettable combination perfect for guests reluctant to share.
In the gluten-free pumpkin cheesecake recipe below, Nielsen-Massey Organic Fair-trade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract enlivens the subtle taste of pumpkin with robust vanilla flavor. Gluten-free ginger snap cookies and cinnamon add hints of spice to the sweet dessert. Made with almond flour, the cheesecake will delight guests desiring gluten-free desserts without sacrificing rich taste.
