Easy Apple Crisp

Yesterday I made two apple pies for my son's 18th birthday. I knew without an alternative, I would cave once again and eat the gluten-filled pie, so I came up with a pretty great and easy alternative. After slicing, spicing (just cinnamon), and sweetening the apples for my pies, I set enough aside in a small baking dish for my apple crisp. I poured in a couple tablespoons of orange juice, crushed 8-10 gluten free gingersnaps in a ziplock bag, added a tablespoon of soft butter, mixed it around a bit, and put it on top of the apples. It should have baked it at 400ยบ for 30 minutes, but left it in a little too long. (I scorched the top...) In spite of the unnecessarily long baking time, it was still very tasty topped with a little bit of ice cream. Much easier than any other gluten free apple crisp I've ever tried and much better tasting too. (The picture is before I baked it.)

  1. It was an experiment. Worked good once and not so great another. But maybe that was the time I burned it. :)
