Best... Dessert

Tesco pies

Tesco Free From mince pies

With a fairly thick and cake-like pastry, these mince pies work well as a dessert with cream. They taste even better once heated up.

£2 for four, from Tesco

 

Best... Mince pies

Booths gluten-free mince pies

Booths gluten-free mince pies

These gluten-free pies had a really crisp pastry with a lovely sticky, rich filling. These pies are a good, chunky shape and will appeal to most tastes.

£2.29, from Booths

Best... Christmas cake

M&S cake

M&S Made Without Gluten Christmas cake

This cake was the most attractive gluten-free cake we tried. It has a sticky middle with an added hit of booze plus the elegant decoration would look beautiful on any table.

£12, from M&S

 

Best... Canapé

Quiche

Ocado No.G mini cheese & onion pastryless quiche

We like the whole range of No.G gluten-free canapés – these look really pretty, wrapped up in paper.

£3.99, from Ocado

Best... Christmas pudding

Sainsbury's pudding

Sainsbury's gluten-free Christmas pudding

This gluten-free offering is a sweet, mild pudding, with a good coarse texture and fruity flavours. This has more citrus notes than other puds we tried.

£3.99, from Sainsbury's
