Dutch Apple Pie

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Gluten-Free Dutch Apple Pie is a classic dessert all about the perfect blend of sweet, tart apples nestled in a flaky pie crust and topped with a mouthwatering crumbly topping. I have been working on some new gluten free dessert recipes. My husband requested my apple pie. Out of all the desserts I used to HATE making pies. They would never set up right, always runny, burnt crust, undercooked center. Kind of like my fried chicken, lol! (Why I don’t make fried chicken)

Through the past few years I have been getting tips wherever I can, and with a lot of trial and error have sort of figured out what works for what fruit. Today I am heading out for an overnight trip in northern Florida with my mother-in-law. We are going to do a little shopping. I’m excited, it’s a new area to explore. I am hoping to find some goodies to go into the next GIVEAWAY package. I just purchased the final bakeware, now just need some filler pieces. Keep your eye out!
