GF DF Apple Crisp

The smell of apple crisp is currently wafting through the house and it is delightful! I created a Gluten Free and Dairy Free version for our Easter dessert tomorrow and may have to dig in and enjoy some tonight. On top of it, we will make our first batch of home-made ice cream today - Doodle says it will be strawberry flavored. Watch for a recipe to come later.

Our Easter menu this year consists of the following:

Nitrate Free Ham from Trader Joe's - thanks Mom for picking it up for me
Oven Roasted Organic Sweet Potatoes - with some kosher salt, there's nothing like it
Organic Salad Green's
Green Bean's
Apple Crisp with Home-made Ice Cream

GF DF Apple Crisp

4-6 Organic Granny Smith Apples - Peeled and Sliced
1/2 to 3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Dairy Free Butter - chilled
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Sweet Rice Flour
2 T Cinnamon
1 cup GF Oats

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Layer sliced apples in an oven safe glass dish. Sprinkle with sugar.
3. In a small bowl, place butter, brown sugar, sweet rice flour, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into dry ingredients until butter is the size of peas.
4. Add oats to the butter/sugar mixture and stir.
5. Place oat mixture on top of apples and bake in oven for 1 hour.
6. Let cool slightly and top with DF ice cream - enjoy!

This is the perfect dish for Easter this year, as it already feels like summer outside. Nothing better on a warm summer night than a slice of hot apple crisp with fresh ice cream melting on top. Enjoy!

P.S. If you're looking for some GF and DF Easter Candy, most Jelly Beans fit the bill. That's what we'll be filling our Easter eggs with this year - should be a fun hunt tomorrow morning!

  1. I have to say - the strawberry ice cream was my best batch yet. My parents and family RAVED about it. Look for the recipe soon...
