My Cranberry Tart with a Cocoa Crust is a big hit even with those who shy away from cranberries. Give it a try and you won't believe it gluten-free!

Mrs. Louviere's custard pie is creamy, silky and oh so easy to prepare.  You need to add this one to your pie arsenal.  

The adventurous baker will enjoy making this Earl Grey Custard Pie.  It is perfumed with bergamot from earl grey tea, and the perfect ending to any meal.

I created this Crustless Almond and Fig Tart when I was in need of a gluten free dessert.  It has become one of my go-to recipes because of its simplicity and versatility.  I simply slice figs, pears or stone fruit and place it on top.  Use the seasonal slice of fruit you have available, and all will be happy!

Learning how to make a fail-proof pastry crust has been invaluable.  I enjoy making this so much that I always have a stash in the freezer.  It's a great gift for the baker in your life, and you should try it this Thanksgiving season with your favorite pie filling.
