  9. Separate the peaches and the juice, pour the juice into a small bowl along with the cornstarch mixture.
  10. Set peaches aside.
  11. Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and whisk until thickened.

  13. You wan't the mixture to be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  14. Stir in butter and lemon juice.
  15. Once butter is melted, gently fold in the sliced peaches.
  16. Pour filling into prepared crust.
  17. Arrange the dough strips into a lattice pattern.

Pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting! (gluten free, low fodmap)

Hey everybody! Yesterday was a little windy and cold and it just got me into the fall mood! I had to make these pumpkin bars! The best part about them is that they are gluten free and low-fodmap! (dont worry, if you don’t want them to be gluten free/low-fodmap then you can just use normal flour) How these are low-fodmap and gluten free is I use this amazing flour: Namaste gluten free flour I love it, you can buy it on amazon or at Costco (the Costco costs $12) I love this gluten free flour because it tastes exactly the same! It makes you feel like you can actually eat something if you have to be gluten free! :)Delicious, moist gluten free pumpkin bars, topped with sweet cream cheese frosting, and sprinkled with cinnamon!
