Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Pizza

This post is brought to you on behalf of Pillsbury

I don’t often make things that are gluten free around here.  We are very fortunate to not have gluten or other food allergies in my family.  But I do have a very close friend who is gluten intolerant.  I always struggle with what to make that she can enjoy too.  All the gluten free flours out there are just over whelming to me.  So I am grateful that Pillsbury now has a line of gluten free doughs.  Pizza Dough, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and a Pie Crust.  Just in time for the holidays too, so I can bring this pizza to my friend when we meet for lunch today!

Chocolate Meringue Cake (gluten free) #SundaySupper


Chocolate Meringue Cake | @dinnersdishesdessert

Today is the first #SundaySupper event of 2013.  We are starting off with a bang too!  The theme today is recipes that are on our bucket list.  You know, the list of things you always say you want to do….eventually.  I don’t actually have a written down list, but I have some things in the back of my mind that I have always wanted to do.  This is even inspiring me to make that list (on paper), and maybe share it with you later.  Maybe they will actually get made then :)

So for this week I picked a chocolate meringue cake.  I have Pavlova (which is a meringue) on my blog, but to be honest my husband made it.  So I wanted to tackle it myself, and do it up with chocolate, because we all know that is how I do things.  Plus my birthday was on Tuesday, so I wanted to turn it into a cake!

It did take 2 attempts for this to work out.  The first time I followed a different recipe, which I am sure was a good one, but there was melted chocolate involved and it just didn’t work out.  So then I started again, adapted the Pavlova recipe I know works, and went from there.  I used an almond flavored, freshly whipped cream as the “frosting”.  There is almond extract in with the meringue too, and it just pairs perfectly together.  It is sweet, light, fluffy, and the perfect birthday cake!  My 7 year old even asked me yesterday if I could make this again for his birthday.
