Tips For Gluten-Free Strawberry Desserts

Room Temperature Ingredients: I’m sure you’ve heard or seen this in just about every recipe but it truly is vital. When ingredients are at different temperatures, they don’t properly combine often creating a flat and/or dense dessert. 

Gluten-Free Flour: There are so many different gluten-free flour blends available on the market today. Each with its advantages and disadvantages. My personal favorite for baking is XO Baking All-Purpose Flour but as long as the 1:1 baking blend contains xanthan gum, it will work.

Washed & Dried Strawberries: I’m not a germaphobe by any stretch of the imagination but I do believe it’s always a good idea to give any fresh produce a thorough wash and dry before using.
