Apple Crisp

Since the weather here has turned beautifully fall and it is apple season here in Nebraska… I decided to make apple crisp yesterday afternoon to take to a pot luck!

To prepare the apples:

Toss in a large bowl:
7 or 8 diced up apples (seeds & core removed), I used Honeycrisp
the zest of 1 lemon 
zest of 1 orange
the juice from the lemon
2-3 tablespoons of orange juice
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
1 heaping teaspoon ground cardamon (you know I love cardamon!)
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Toss until the apple pieces are completely coated.  The pour into a large baking dish.  I used a deep 9x13 ceramic baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

To prepare the crumble topping:

In another bowl:

2 sticks of cold butter, diced
1 1/2 cups Domata flour

cut the butter into the flour until is resembles fine crumbs, you can use a pastry cutter if you have one otherwise just use a fork.

Add in:

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup gluten free oatmeal

stir all together with a fork - should be crumbly!

Lightly pour over the apples.  Try not to pack down the topping otherwise it will bake into a cookie!!

Put the ceramic dish on a baking sheet to prevent overflow incase the apples bubble up.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1.5 hours.  This just depends on your oven…and how juicy your apples are… Check on it after an hour.

This is a great dish because well… it's sure great hot with some ice cream, but it's just as good once it's cooled down!  Plus it travels pretty well if you're heading to a pot luck!

If you have leftovers, keep them covered in the fridge.
