Apple Crisp

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

5-6 Golden Delicious apples, cored, sliced, and if you have the time, peeled
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Streusel topping:
3/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 Tbsp potato starch
6 Tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar

In a 9x13 pan, spread apples. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Drizzle lemon juice over top. In a separate bowl, combine rice flour, cornstarch, potato starch, and brown sugar. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender until mixture is crumbly and holds together when pressed down. Sprinkle topping over apples. Bake in a 350 oven for 1 hour. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Sorry about the picture, I wasn't going to post this but...
I made this for my sister, also a celiac, and her husband, a non celiac. I was in a rush and threw it together before we ate dinner. She tried it first and oohed and aahed, and I smiled, thanking her but also knowing she's easy to please. Then he tried it, and seriously couldn't stop telling me how delicious it was. I take his comments to heart, because I know that sometimes I, as a celiac, don't have the same palette as the non celiacs. So this is an easy dessert that you can throw together that will get rave reviews.

yum! this was all I could make after each fall NY apple picking adventure and it was delicious every time. Almost like the insides of apple pie (the best part, anyway, in my opinion!).

I just have to tell you girls, it is 10:30p.m. and I had to go make this for my hubby, he had a bad day and I figured it would make yummy breakfast(dessert is legal for that at our house if you are a grown-up). Thanks for inspiring me!

Apple crisp was my favorite dessert as a child! My mom worked for a bakeware company, and I loved playing with the apple peeler/slicer tool. I haven't thought about it in years, but thanks for bringing this back into my life.
