Gluten Free Impossible Apple Pie

Impossibly Easy Gluten-Free French Apple Pie Recipe

I tried this recipe today and was pleasantly shocked delighted at how good it came out!

Gluten free baking can often be a bit of trial and error, but this recipe just WORKS. Plus, this was after I did some major substitutions for the butter, eggs, and milk.

I’ve also been trying to reduce my sugar intake lately, so I reduced the sugar by quite a bit. If you like things very sweet, add more sugar, but the natural sweetness of the apples and the minimal amount of sugar tastes excellent to me!

The texture was more of a very light coffeecake, perfect for breakfast as well.

I didn’t have my camera with me when I tried this recipe, so the image shown is from Betty Crocker. But I’m happy to say, my version looked almost exactly like the one pictured.
