All American Gluten Free Apple Crisp
You will need…
3/4 cup gluten free flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
8 Tblsp (1/2 cup) cold butter, cut into cubes
1 cup rolled whole oats
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
5 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped into 1/2 inch chunks
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 maple syrup
2 Tblsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4 medium ramekins (6 small ramekins)
Preheat oven to 375F/180C. Arrange the ramekins on a large baking sheet and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, light brown sugar, salt, cream of tartar, and xanthan gum. Cut the cold butter into the flour mixture with two knives or a pastry cutter until you get a fine crumbly mixture.
Add the oats and pecans and work the mixture together in your hands, squeezing the mixture until it forms soft clumps. Place in the freezer to chill while preparing the apples.
Once the apples have been peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2 inch chunks, in a large bowl combine the apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and maple syrup. Stir until the apples are well coated in the mixture.
Divide the apples into the 4 ramekins (or 6 if using small ones). Take the crumble topping out of the freezer and sprinkle over each ramekin. Bake in the oven for approx 30-40mins, or until deep golden brown on top, and the apple filling is bubbling. Remove from oven and serve warm.
This apple crisp is best enjoyed with vanilla ice cream!
Stars and stripes completes the All American fashion dream right? I’ve come half-way, combining stripes with leopard and a touch of polka dot… Its all about mixing prints this summer! My All American look wearing American designers and vintage, except my Céline tote… But there’s always room for Céline.
