Quick Apple Crisp: Gluten-Free Recipe

Quick Apple Crisp:  Gluten-Free Recipe

Friends and family always ask for seconds of this quick and easy gluten-free dessert, given to us by my neighbor Cathy Walker.

Cathy says that using the most flavorful apples available in the season you make this is a key for success. The best choices of apple for mid-winter and spring are organic Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Newtown Pippin, Baldwin, Rome Beauty, Northern Spy, Stayman, and Winesap. The tarter the better.

4 cups tart apples
2 tablespoons lemon juice
cup brown rice flour
cup Sucanat (organic sugar)
cup butter
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Peel, core and slice the apples into a bowl, and sprinkle with lemon juice. Blend the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Spread the apples in a bake pan, and cover with the blended ingredients. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden.
