Looking for a dairy free gluten free desert for company.

This person can eat eggs and some butter is ok. Any recipes would be appreciated

And if you don't need to be traditional, then I'd make a fresh citrus fruit salad. AFter all those starches, it might be nice to have something light!

There are so many ways you could go here! If you want to make something that's traditional, you could try this gluten-free vegan pie crust: http://glutenfreegirl.com/gluten-free-vegan-pie-crust/ (You just need vegan "buttery" sticks, such as the ones made by Spectrum or Earth Balance.) And for the filling, we actually prefer pumpkin pie filling made with coconut milk instead of evaporated milk: http://glutenfreegirl.com/how-to-make-gluten-free-pumpkin-pie-for-thanksgiving/ I think the coconut milk makes the pie lighter and more delicious. We don't have to be dairy-free, but this is how we make our pies now.

I have a whole collection of dairy-free gluten-free desserts on by blog. Maybe one of these would work. http://www.couldntbeparve.com/recipe-index/gluten-free/ I especially like the chocolate mousse cups for company, they are very elegant.

Good old fashioned fruit salad. Maybe a wine-sauce? Or poached?

Beyondcelery has amazing gluten free recipes. We had a Seattle book launch for the first Food52 cookbook, and she brought these and we couldn't stop eating them. I have made them since and no one knows they are gluten free - they just want more! http://food52.com/recipes/14717_coconutlemon_macaroons

Thanks. I'll have to try to find the chocolate

Flour less chocolate cake (make sure the chocolate u use is dairy free. Scharffen-Berger's semi sweet and bitter sweet are dairy free), and substitute butter for oil (1 cup butter for 3/4 cup oil). Epicurious has a great recipe.

Make a pavlova (baked egg white meringue). Here's one that's gluten & dairy free,

Vegan chocolate chip cookies with apple sauce & coconut butter

Great idea. Haven't heard of coconut butter. Do you make it or buy it?
