Quick & Easy Gluten Free Apple Crisp

I am a huge lover of gluten free apple desserts. Last year I introduced you to Inside Out Apple Crisp, and this year I just had to bring a new easy gluten free apple crisp version your way!

Individual desserts are my favorite. Especially ones you can make ahead, like these. Just reheat them in the oven. Of course, my husband ate two of them cold and thought they were terrific, so if you don’t feel like reheating, they are great anyway!

Cookie Crust

What makes these little darlings so easy is that I use pre-made cookies for the crust. Now, you could go with a certified gluten free oatmeal cookie. I’m sure they would be delicious, but I chose to use Goodie Girls Toffee Crunch. I love the bits of toffee, and there are even some chocolate chips scattered in there. They make the perfect bite.

The trick is to not pulverize the cookies in the food processor, but just crunch them up. A little bit of butter and brown sugar will hold them together nicely. This recipe makes quite a bit of crust. You can add as much or as little as you like. I loved topping them with a bit of vanilla ice cream, hubby preferred them without it.  It’s entirely up to you!

Appley Goodness

Honestly, this little dessert took no time to throw together. Just a few ingredients apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, salt, butter, and cookies. You probably have all these things sitting in your kitchen already!

I’m sure your family will go just as crazy over this quick and easy gluten free apple crisp as we have!

Tell me- apple desserts- with or without ice cream?

    What a great way to use cookies! We always have half a pack of cookies lying around that would be perfectly repurposed into a dessert like this.

    I love the idea of individual crisps… because some people I know go digging for all the apples, and others I know scrape off all the topping! (I may be one or the other, haha)…
