It’s that time of year again…you know…apple time! I’ve got a Caramel Apple Crisp for you today that is yummy and can easily be made Gluten Free…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
So much to love…
Summer slipping quietly into September…Mornings dawn chilled making coffee so much better… Puffs of white clouds against pristine blue sky…First cozy fires of the season…Pumpkin spice lattes … Oh, and seasonal foods…
But about the food, this is my first autumn after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease and I’m trying to figure out how to remake my favorite recipes…gluten free. The first thing on my wish list was Apple Crisp. I make a couple of versions. The first is a great low fat/low calorie version that The Husband and I love because it’s yummy and there’s no guilt involved with this indulgence! (Figure Friendly Apple Crisp recipe HERE)
The other recipe is Butterscotch Pecan Apple Crisp recipe HERE. I make it every year for our Family Pumpkin Carving Contest …
I didn’t have any gluten free butterscotch chips on hand so I played around with adding my favorite thing, Dulce de Leche and here’s the scrumptious result…
Caramel Apple Crisp~Gluten Free
*1/2 can Dulce de Leche (found in the ethnic foods)
*1/8 cup Pamela’s Pancake/Baking mix
(Just use all-purpose flour if you aren’t gluten-free)
*1/8 cup dark brown sugar
*1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
*1/4 cup (gluten free) natural applesauce
*1 1/2 lbs. (about 5-6 medium apples) apples~peeled & diced
Mix all ingredients and put into a sprayed pie pan or app. 8×8 baking dish

*1/2 cup Pamela’s Pancake/Baking mix (or all-purpose flour)
