25 Delicious Gluten Free Desserts (that don't taste like cardboard!)

My friend Amy is getting married this weekend to a great guy. They are doing a dessert potluck for their reception, which I LOVE. The one hitch, though, is that Amy is sensitive to gluten and wheat so it is Gluten Free Dessert potluck. As someone who has no food allergies and bakes "fully leaded" (with gluten and real sugar and real butter...oh my!) it took some research to decide what to bring. Honestly. My first thought when I heard it was a gluten free dessert potluck was

Gluten free desserts? Um....apples? Strawberries?

Convinced that a bowl of apples is the lamest thing ever to bring to a potluck and certain that those sensitive to gluten eat more than apples and strawberries for dessert, I dug in and found a lot of very tasty recipes. I'm confident that you'll love all 25 of these recipes whether they are for you or a gluten sensitive loved one.
