LadyBatman:
When I make gf cheesecake I usually home make peanut butter cookies (recipe on the back of the pb jar) then crush it up with butter to almost make it a paste. Pb cookies are really cheap to make!

Are those the kind that don't have flour?


--- Quote from: Auntie Mame on May 01, 2013, 01:24:24 PM ---Also one quick bit of advice, check your labels for the words "modified corn starch" or "modified food starch".  The majority of the time, the starches have been cut with wheat and can make someone sick.

That's interesting! I was of the impression that under the new rules if they *had* been cut with wheat, it was required that they say it on the packaging.

And that most modified food starch is not wheat based and is safe, unless it is specifically designated.

--- Quote ---The FDA’s Code of Federal Regulations spells out what can be used to modify corn starch, as well as other starches, and none of the allowed substances contain gluten.

Modified corn starch sometimes appears on a label as plain “modified food starch.” In that case it is still gluten free. The only time you have to worry about modified food starch is when it is made from wheat. On foods regulated by the FDA, wheat has to be specified on the label so the label will say “modified wheat starch,” “modified food starch (wheat),” or wheat will be listed after the ingredients in a “contains” statement.

I've always thought that oats could be a problem with gluten, too.

I've made a walnut crust many times for cheesecake, and it is delicious.  I just ground walnut pieces up in my aged blender, and added sugar and butter.  It is an Atkins recipe - I'm sure that there are many online.  You could probably use other nuts, too.  Almonds are hard and don't grind as easily, but almond flour is available.

cicero:
sounds lovely.

YOu could also add hummus with ... something for dipping (corn chips? veggies? rice cakes?). or stuffed grape leaves (canned - oh so easy to pop open a can and dump artistically arrange on a plate

I have somewhere a great recipe for GF chocolate cake - it's beyond amazing , even for non-gf guests (I think i may have posted it here at some time. it uses ground almonds in place of flour)

LadyBatman:
Yes, the cookies are simply peanut better, sugar and egg. The recipe is on the back of kraft peanut butter. Most times i add a bit of gf all purpose flour in (to help with the shaping of balls) but if it's being crushed up anyhow as a crust, just spoon dallops onto the baking sheet!
