Pear-Cherry Crisp

Crisps are easier than pies to throw together, and that goes double for people on a gluten-free diet, as pie crusts without gluten can be more difficult to handle. This gluten-free topping can finish off any fruit crisp, like ones made of summer berries, stone fruits, or apples.

Pumpkin Pie With Ginger Snaps

Unless you genuinely enjoy making your own pie crust—an activity some find soothing and others find frustrating—there’s no reason not to buy ready-to-bake crusts, which have greatly improved since the brittle store-bought crusts of yore. And with this pie’s secret gingersnap layer, nobody will miss the effort, least of all you. Make sure to get gingersnaps, which are brittle, as opposed to soft ginger cookies.
