Gluten-Free Desserts

Is it time for dessert? Try one of these sweet treats.

Labneh Tart with Honey-Cranberry Topping

Labneh, or yogurt cheese, is a Middle Eastern strained plain yogurt. Make your own by draining plain Greek yogurt in a strainer placed over a bowl for several hours.

Cherry-Pistachio Crisps

Deep-red cherries bubbling under a sweet, fragrant, pistachio-flecked topping make individual crisps especially festive. Serve warm topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped pistachios.

Pear Almond Cake

This light-and-luscious cake is the perfect ending to any holiday meal. It stores well for a couple of days in the fridge—just be sure to bring it to room temperature before serving.

Minty Melon Sorbet

Sweet melon sorbet, accented with mint and ginger, melts in your mouth and cleanses the palate to finish a meal. The alcohol helps keep the sorbet smooth. Serve with chilled melon balls or a mixed fruit salad. If you’re using a 1-quart ice cream maker, churn the sorbet in two batches.

Honey-Poached Asian Pears

Asian pears cooked with honey and served warm sprinkled with pine nuts are a classic home remedy for colds and coughs in Korea. Here, we’ve jazzed up the flavor with hibiscus tea and pomegranate juice. Serve warm or chilled.
