GIRDLEBUSTER PIE. I confess: it was the title that lured me.


Tell me you don’t feel the same. I came across this in a recipe by Elinor Klivans, whom I often turn to for chocolatey solace, in her The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook, which includes the wonderful phrase “let the chocolate chips fall where they will”. Although her recipes always work to the letter, my recipe is not hers. I am inspired by the digestive and chocolate base and coffee ice cream filling (though if you’re feeding children, I’d suggest vanilla) but I like a butterscotchy topping, which sets the minute it hits the ice cream. Sometimes bits of ice cream bubble up to the surface, making the top gloriously Florentined.

And the joy of the girdlebuster (as it is known for short at home) is that, should there be any left, you can put it back into its dish and just stash in the freezer again for midnight feasts.

This holiday season is my first time navigating major holidays while following the Autoimmune Protocol. Food - Recipes : Grapefruit and pepper meringue tartlets. Hazelnut Caramel Tartlets.

It wasn’t until the thought of creating desserts gluten-free did I start to look around and experiment with different sorts of recipes, one being an all-purpose gluten-free mix. The one being posted here is the most recent baking mix recipe that I find to be delightful, while still mimicking desserts that are with regular flour. I was very happy making these tartlets and working with the dough. It was surprisingly easier than I thought and better to work with than pâte sucrée with flour.
