In case you’re wondering when the best time to make friends with someone is, it’s right when they’re pitching a gluten-free baking cookbook to publishers. I know because that’s when I met Alanna. It’s also when I willingly accepted my new role as dessert taste tester, with a constant rotation of Alanna’s latest cookbook creations showing up at my house. It’s a tough job being friends with Alanna. At the end of *cough*waytoolong*cough*, Alternative Baker is FINALLY ALMOST HERE!! I’m so stinkin’ excited to share Alanna’s masterpiece with you via this ginger goat cheese cheesecake tart inspired by her flavor pairings and built on a crust adapted from the book.
