This Italian dessert is, in my opinion, a must for any celebration. This is the traditional tiramisu recipe, except this is a gluten-free version. Think rich cream, ladyfingers, coffee, cocoa and coffee liqueur. I included a made from scratch gluten-free ladyfingers recipe to keep this dessert gluten-free. But, if you want to keep the recipe simple, I included a link in the recipe where you can purchase gluten-free ladyfingers online.
Heads up…tradition never goes out of style. Yes, this impressive apple tart is roll your eyes back delicious. You will need about five apples, a food processor and a quick maple caramel sauce. I consider this one of my favourite Easter apple desserts. The crust is made in the food processor and easily pressed into the pie dish—no rolling of the pie dough or extra mess. You must check out this gluten-free apple tart recipe. It is sooo easy to make and fail-proof. Just don’t save on apples. The more, the better!
This gluten-free dessert is a perfect addition for spring, especially brunch. The cream puffs are light, crispy on the outside and pillowy and hollow inside—a perfect shell for your favourite pastry filling. I love to add fresh strawberries to the cream puffs giving them a fresh spring look.
A rich, decadent chocolate blackberry pie. The filling is made with espresso coffee, so this gluten-free dessert is for grownups. The three-layer pie is made with fresh blackberries. Combine chocolate, espresso and blackberries, and you know it will taste delicious. This dessert is for those that love the coffee-chocolate flavour.
If you love the creamy layers in tiramisu but don’t like chocolate or coffee, try a version made with fresh strawberries. So refreshingly delicious, and this dessert does not have to be baked. The beautiful strawberry colours will add a spark of colour to your Easter dessert table. And this is a no-fail dessert. No one can mess this recipe up…I promise!

This apple pie is a true classic, except without the crust. The tender, juicy fresh apple slices, lightly flavoured with cinnamon and lemon juice, bring back the nostalgia of Easter. The topping for this apple pie is crunchy almonds mixed with oats, sugar, vanilla, and butter to make up for the crust. You will need a big spoon for this dessert. This crust-free apple pie is that good! Serve warm, and add a dollop of vanilla ice cream. OMG!
