Author Notes

This dish reminds me most of fall and growing up in the Adirondacks. When it bakes the scent will fill your house. I published this recipe in Delight Gluten Free Fall 2012 as a Berry Crisp - I modified it here for just apple crisp but you can add 1/2 cup of berries for a twist. —Amy Howard

What You'll Need
  • 6 cups Apples, peeled and thinly sliced (about 5 medium apples)
  • 1/2 cup Butter, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 cup Sugar, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup GF Quick cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup Light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Cornstarch
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease an 8” glass baking dish.
  2. Place half of the apples in the dish; top with dotted with 4 TB butter, sprinkle with ¼ tsp cinnamon, ¼ C sugar, and half the lemon juice.
  3. Add the remaining apples, top with dotted 4 TB butter, ¼ tsp cinnamon, ¼ C sugar, and half the lemon juice.
  4. Combine ½ tsp cinnamon, salt, oats, brown sugar, 2 C sugar and cornstarch. Mix well and press firmly over apples.
  5. Bake 1 hour, allow to cool slightly and serve warm. Serve with homemade whipped cream or a la mode.

Hey! I just put this in the oven but had a couple questions for you. The ingredient list calls for 3/4 cup granulated sugar divided, but through the directions you end up with 2 1/2 cups. Two cups seems like a lot for the topping - is that the right measurement? And is 1/2 cup oats really all you need for the topping? I'm wondering if it's supposed to be 2 cups (and switched with the granulated sugar measurement). Thanks for any advice you can offer!
