Tip For Measuring Gluten
It is super important to use a measuring cup made for dry ingredients to measure gluten-free flour. I measure the gluten-free flour with the spoon & level method.
I use a large spoon to scoop the flour out of the bag into the measuring cup. Then I use the back of a knife to level off the top of the measuring cup.
Please do not scoop the flour directly out of the bag with your measuring cup. If you do, you could end up with more flour than is called for in the recipe.

Apple Pie Filling Tips And Troubleshooting
- As soon as you cut up each apple then stir into the lemon juice to prevent the slices from turning brown.
- Allowing the apples to macerate in the seasoning is imperative to helping the apples retain their shape during their bake and not leak out their juices. This will lead to a soggy bottom.
- Dont discard the juice that you are macerating the apples in you must include in your pie. Dont worry it will not make your pie soggy. Use a slotted spoon to arrange the apple slices into your pie crust then once you have placed them all in then pour the juice over the top.
Gluten Free Apple Crumble Pie

This Gluten Free Apple Crumble Pie is a delicious and healthier take on the classic apple pie. It is made from minimal natural ingredients, two different types of apples, and is very simple to make.
With the holidays approaching, I literally cannot get sweet holiday themed desserts off my head. I just want to be spending all of my time in the kitchen whipping up new treats, singing along with Michael Bubles Christmas Album, and making a complete disaster like I always do in the kitchen.
We are headed up to Connecticut tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving with Toms family and I have been planning what I wanted to bring for a little while now. Since I made so many holiday pies this year , I figured I would bring one of those but wanted to offer to his aunt to bring anything.
She requested that I bring up a Stocks pound cake, which is what I brought the first time I ever met Toms family for Easter a few years ago! They are so amazing.
She also asked if I would be willing to make a gluten free apple pie of some sort. I took this as a sign that I needed to get an apple pie recipe up on my blog, so I started figuring out how I could make the most delicious gluten free apple crumble pie.
I knew I wanted to make a traditional crust using real butter because I feel like you cant skimp when it comes to the crust. Plus, butter is natural and isnt going to kill you, it is the holidays after all!

Rolling Out Tips And Troubleshooting
- Roll out your pastry between two sheets of baking parchment. You want to avoid adding excess flour to the pastry so this protects it. Plus it makes it less likely to crack and so much easier to manoeuvre into the pie dish.
- If you like baking a lot of pies I recommend being aware of the exact size you need to roll your pastry out to so that it is the right thickness and will avoid pastry wastage. Draw a circle of the correct size onto the baking parchment and use this as a guide. It is about a 10 inch round.
- Use a large rolling pin and roll with your forearms with a light even weight pressed to the pin.
- Turn your pastry a quarter turn after every single roll for a balanced circle shape.
- It is fine to roll out the pastry a little thicker than you might normally. This recipe produces the exact right amount of pastry.
- After you have fitted the pastry lid over your pie then cut away the pastry excess to just past the edges of the pie dish. Pinch and roll the ends together towards the pie to seal. You can keep the edges just rolled for a rustic finish or crimp the edges together.
- You need a very light egg wash brushed over the pastry before the pie is baked. Avoid the egg wash gathering in the crimped edges as too much moisture on the pastry will make it fall apart.

- Granny Smith apples are the most popular apples to use for baking an apple pie. They are tart, crisp, and they keep their structure after time in the oven.
- Honeycrisp are my favorite apples for both eating and baking! They are sweeter than Granny Smiths but still crisp. They always hold firm after baking.
- Pink Lady apples are a good balance of sweet and tart. They also hold their shape when baked.
- Jazz apples are also sweet and tart and will stay firm after baking.
For my apple pie filling, I like to use half Granny Smith and half Honeycrisp apples.
