I am again thankful for the internet. It gave me all the information I needed to crank out two gluten free pumpkin cheesecakes with gingersnap crust. One of my all time favorite desserts that I thought I would have to give up due to gluten intolerance.
Hail, Internet! Turns out the trick was simply finding gluten free gingersnaps. Much easier said than done in this town (I managed to snag the last two boxes at the last stop after hitting 4 or 5 other stores to no avail).
Now the trick is getting the family to leave me at least a tiny morsel–I get to work tomorrow and will not be with them for dinner. Not that I know which invitation they intend to accept (maybe both?)
