It felt like summer here today but all the apples at the Farmer’s Market yesterday had me craving Apple Crisp.  In fact, apples and apple crisp may be one of my favorite things about Fall baking.

This is one of my Grandmother’s apple crisp recipe, and we’ve been making it with gluten-free GF Jules all purpose flour  for years.  The crumb topping just the right about of sweet and cinnamon, and a perfect pairing with fresh apples.  It’s my go to Fall dessert… and it’s always a crowd pleaser!

    Just made this! YUM! My only problem is that there wasn’t enough butter/cinnamon to cover the whole thing….and I used only 5 or 6 apples. Other than that it’s so simple and delicious and since there are apples I’m considering it very healthy! 😉 xo

    1. This is a yummy one! The butter cinnamon mix is spent to be drizzled over the top but not to cover every inch of the flour mix…. I haven’t made this one for a while but I have some apples so maybe I’ll make it and take more photos to be clearer! Thanks for the feedback!
