Apple Crisp Pie

When you want a pie but your husband wants apple crisp – make an Apple Crisp Pie!

Start with a gluten free pie shell and fill it with freshly sliced apples (about 6). Spritz lemon juice on the apple slices.

Get your pie shell ready

Then put in the apple slices.

Then in a separate bowl add:

1 1/2 cups gluten free oats

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 1/2 cups gluten free flour (that has xanthan gum)

1 cup melted butter

Spices – 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 salt

* I ended up doubling the recipe so the entire top was even. And to be honest, we all love the topping!

Mix well.

Careful pack onto the apples.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 60 minutes (if it wasn’t in a pie shell it would be cooked in about 30 minutes.)

Yum! It was delicious!

Serve warm with ice cream.

Hope you enjoy too!

Review: The Wheatless Gourmet Gluten Free Puff Pastry Sheets

I was so excited when I saw this product!! Finally Gluten Free Puff pastry?!?! Eeek

So I bought some at our local gluten free specialty bakery. They warned me on purchased, it took some time to get use to when baking but I ignored any warnings – I was sold at gluten free puff pastry.

First reality check is the lovely puff pastry pictures are only suggestions – it’s a frozen log that takes waaaaay longer than the 20 minutes suggested to thaw. I found closer to 40 minutes.

Once ready, set up your area. I put down my parchment, with a sprinkling of Gluten Free Flour. I gently rollout out a square. I hardly modified how it came due to this being the first time.

Ahead of time, I fixed up 2 apples. Threw them in a fry pan with some unsalted butter, a couple of Tablespoons of ground cinnamon, a splash of orange juice, a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a few heaping tablespoons of brown sugar.

I stirred and let them lightly cook for about 15 minutes.

Set aside.

About a tablespoon or so of room temperature cream cheese as a base, on the pastry then put the cooled apple topping on top. Fold over.

I found I was able to make 3 large apple turnovers with one box.

I did use an egg wash to seal the ends and sprinkled sugar on top before placing into a preheated 350F oven.

Cooked for about 40minutes.

Oh. My. God. It tastes light and just like I remember gluten puff pastry to taste like. Delicious.

A nice alternative to making pastry from scratch! It will take getting use to and will be considered a treat but a nice option to have!

Warm Apple Pie 

Apple pie is always a favourite. It is mostly associated with the Fall season but apple pie anytime is a crowd pleasure! It’s also super simple to whip together and is always tastey! 

Apple Pie 

6-8 Macintosh apples 

1/2 cup brown sugar 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1 tablespoon lemon juice 

1 tablespoon butter 

Maple syrup 

Pie shells – one for the bottom and one for the top 

1) I find the best way to know how many apples is to just start peeling and cutting them into your pie shell 

Preheat oven to 350 

   

2) With the apple slices in a bowl mix in the lemon juice, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Place this in a pie shell. 

3) Cut the butter into tiny bits and place through out the top. Drizzle maple syrup on top 

Place top crust on top. 
 

  
4) cook for about 60 minutes. Pie should be bubbling through out. 

  
Let cool and enjoy!
