Crisp Like the Weather

What does one do with a peck of Cortland apples from the lovely Applecrest Farm?  Core, peel, slice, and make apple crisp, naturally.

Yesterday I attended the New England Celiac Conference in Marlborough, MA.  Among the throngs of gluten free vendors was the European based company Schar.  Schar offers tons of wonderful gluten free goods, and yesterday they offered handouts, one with the inspiration for today’s crisp invention.  I tweaked their recipe a bit but it turned out so well!

Apple Crisp

6 large apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

The topping:

2/3 cup certified gluten free oats (I used Lara’s)

1/3 cup crushed gluten free animal crackers (I used Kinnikinnick)

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup butter, chilled and cubed

1.  Combine sugar and spices, toss apples to coat.

2.  In a separate bowl, combine oats, crushed crackers, sugar and cinnamon.  Using fingers, mix in the butter until it resembles a coarse meal.

3.  Place apples in baking dish (I used a square cake pan as it was all we had).  Top with the struesel.

4.  Bake at 350 degrees for forty minutes, or until apples are bubbling.

5.  Eat! Preferably with ice cream 🙂



  1. Yum! Please make me one next month 🙂

  2. that was wicked frickin’ good lady. thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Orie just tried to make a gluten-free crisp for our new roomie using a recipe she found online and unfortunately she missed the gluten-free oat part…so sad 😦
