Raspberry Freezer Dessert - Gluten Free



I'm re-posting this dessert recipe because it's another of my favorite gluten-free desserts and is perfect for this time of year, whether you use raspberries or strawberries.

I really like my deep red KitchenAid mixer. :-)

This dessert is light and delicious and gluten-free. Of course you can substitute regular flour for the tapioca and white rice flours I use in the recipe.


Crumble Ingredients:
1/2 c. white rice flour
1/2 c. tapioca flour
1/2 c. soft butter
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. chopt walnuts

Cut butter into flours and sugar. Stir in walnuts. Spread the crumbles on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with a GF cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for 10-18 minutes. Stir a couple times while baking, and bake until the crumbles are golden brown. (Mostly golden. Less brown.) When done, cool crumbles and set aside 1/2 c. to use later as a sprinkling for the top of the dessert. Spread the remaining crumbles evenly in the bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2 cake pan.


Meanwhile, beat 2 egg whites until stiff. As you can see, the two egg whites get kinda lost in the bottom of the KitchenAid bowl, but they do eventually fluff up and stiffen.


To the stiff egg whites in the mixer bowl add:
1 c. sugar
2. t. fresh lemon juice
16 oz. FROZEN raspberries


Beat 20 minutes. This grows a lot during beating. It may completely fill your mixer bowl.

Now, fold in an 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip. You can see I switched to a large, stainless steel pan. There's too much volume to fit into the mixer bowl.


When the Cool Whip is completely folded in, spread it on the layer of crumbles in the cake pan. Use the reserved 1/2 c. of crumbles to sprinkle over the top. Cover with a lid and freeze overnight. Remove from the freezer a few minutes before serving.


So far, I've not met anyone who doesn't like this! :-) So grab a fork!



P.S. You can use the same recipe with strawberries, but the strawberries should be partially frozen, not completely frozen, when used for the recipe.

I buy the fresh mozzarella from Sam's Club or the local grocery. No, I'm not into cheese making, although as much as I love it, I should! These 12 grandkids take a lot of my time. No complaints!

Hello, I came to your blog by way of your comment at Jane Austen Today. This looks like a terrific dessert. I love raspberries. But not as much as I love Lionel! If he were my cat, I'd put his picture in my blog header and sit back and watch my readership zoom as people came back just to look at HIM!

Did you check out the Netherfield Ball Supper post at Jane Austen's World, janeaustensworld.wordpress.com?
