Gluten Free Fall Dessert InspirationThis fall marks the one year point of my journey eating gluten free. I’ve learned a lot about cooking without wheat/gluten in the last twelve months. Last year, attempting to bake a pie would have felt like a discouraging thought, but this year is one full of growth and change. While I’m not fully ready to dive into the world of blending my own gluten free flours, I am absolutely here for store bought crusts, blends, and mixes. And with that, I’m baking rose apple tarts that are 100% gluten free thanks to Bob’s Red Mill gluten free pie crust mix. If you have a favorite gluten free pie crust recipe and want to make this a real life sized pie, feel free to go for it! If you buy your dough from a store, that’s awesome too. Please comment below what your favorite brand is so I can learn about your go-to shortcut. As always, if you aren’t gluten free, this recipe works the same with gluten-full pie dough, so feel free to substitute.
- Start by prepping your pie crust. This gluten free pie mix I’m using today is a blend of different kinds of gluten free flour that you then mix with butter and water. Preheat your oven and par-bake as directed on the packaging of your pie crust.
- Slice your apples. You can pick your favorite apple or a blend of different varieties here, I’m sticking to Granny Smith. The thinner you can cut your apples, the better.
- Season and simmer your apples. Cooking the apples briefly with some sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg makes them much easier to bend and curve into the rose shape.
- Assemble! Layer your sliced apples in a rose pattern, starting at the outside of your crust, working your way towards the middle. Bake them and enjoy.
