Delicious gluten-free apple pie with sweet streusel topping.
4 medium-sized Golden Delicious Apples
4 medium-sized Fuji apples
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup gluten-free flour (I use Better Batter Gluten-Free Flour)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup buttery spread, cold from the fridge (Smart Balance or Earth Balance)
1 cup gluten-free flour (Better Batter Gluten-Free Flour)
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
First, you’ll need to make my gluten-free pie crust. There are several steps to making this pie crust but overall it is easy. It just takes some time for freezing the buttery spread and then chilling the pie crust in the pie pan.
Secondly, you’ll need to peel and slice 8 apples making roughly 8 cups. My favorite apple combination is Golden Delicious and Fuji apples. I use 4 medium-sized apples of each kind.
Pour 1 tablespoon of lemon juice over the sliced apples and stir to lightly coat and then add sugar, gluten-free flour, and cinnamon. Thoroughly combine and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 425° and place the oven rack to the lowest position.
To make the streusel topping add the brown sugar, buttery spread, and gluten-free flour to a medium-sized bowl and use a pastry cutter or two forks to combine the topping ingredients together until it’s mixed and crumbly.
Remove the chilled pie crust from the refrigerator and pour the apple filling into it and smooth out the filling leaving it a little higher in the center.
Next, pour the streusel topping over the apples and spread it out evenly. Then sprinkle the tablespoon of sugar over the top
Baking Your Pie:
Bake on the bottom rack at 425° for 15 minutes and then reduce the temperature to 350° and continue baking for another 35 minutes or until golden brown. You may want to rotate your pie in the oven when you reduce the temperature in case you have a hot spot in your oven that way the crust will bake more evenly.
Remove pie from oven and let cool on a wire rack and cool.
If you want to eat it warm let it cool at least 30-40 minutes. The center can still be very warm even then so test a little bit at first so no one burns their mouth.
Or let it completely cool, it’s still delicious. Enjoy!
