I'm generally happy to eat some sugar and fruit so that I can share enjoyment of a dessert. Like owly I have to avoid gluten as it makes me ill.
There are plenty of delicious gluten-free dessert recipes out there now. I found one in a newspaper and gave it to my Mum last weekend so we can make it at Christmas. It's mini-trifles made in glasses with layers of soft cheese mixed with lemon juice and honey, crushed amaretti biscuits, pomegranate and crushed pistachios.
Another mainstay for dessert is meringue-based recipes with fruit, cream and liqueur.
