Apple Season

Fall is more than Pumpkin Spice everything. It is also the beginning of apple season! I love apple season. So many delicious varieties available. We love apples. My daughter and husband’s favorite are “Jazz Apples”, but when it comes to making dessert, Honey Crisp apples are king, especially when stuffed with oatmeal cookies and oozing caramel!

Goodie Girl Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

When I received Goodie Girl’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, I couldn’t help but think they would be perfect for a gluten free apple crisp. The cookies have the perfect combo of oats, cinnamon, and raisins. A little bit chewy and little bit crispy, they have a great texture.

As I was preparing to make an apple crisp, I remembered my husband and I’s first Valentine’s Day. He made an amazing dinner (risotto, asparagus, and salmon!) and for dessert, he made stuffed apples. Coring and filling Honey Crisp apples with cookies, then baking them. They were so delicious. I have been wanting to recreate them but hadn’t found the perfect cookie, until now.

Goodie Girl Oatmeal Raisin Cookies make the perfect filling. Combined with brown sugar and butter, the cookie filling oozes out its own caramel as it bakes. It is to die for.

3 Steps to the Ultimate Fall Dessert: Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Gluten Free Apple Crisp | https://eatatourtable.comInside out gluten free apple crisp is so easy to make. You can make it for one, two, or the whole neighborhood! There are just three basic steps.

Core the apples

I used a kitchen aid carrot peeler because I did not have an apple corer. Once I got the core out, I used a little spoon to scoop out the inside. Be sure to save the inside pieces from the apple. They will need to be chopped up and combined with the filling.Gluten Free Apple Crisp |

Fill the apples

Combine the cookies, brown sugar, melted butter, and pieces of apple. Stuff it into the apple and pack it down. You should already see some of the brown sugar and butter mixture starting to spill over.

As the apples bake, the juice from the apple combines with the sugar and butter, oozing out and creating a luscious caramel that can be spooned over the apples when they are served. It is such a simple dessert, but so pretty, your guests will be impressed.

Inside out gluten free apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts. If you are looking for another delicious apple dessert, you have to check out the Mouthwatering Gluten Free French Apple Cakes from Fearless Dining, they are absolutely divine!

    These look so tasty and pretty! I know someone who is gluten and diary free and I am always looking for yummy things to make when we have her over for dinner. Do you think I could use margarine instead of butter?

    Honey crisp apples are one of my *favorite* things about fall, but I never actually bake with them! I am so going to have to try this. And using oatmeal cookies as part of your filling is completely brilliant!
