Gluten Free Apple Crumb Dessert

Recently I had some apples that were going bad, I decided to make something with them instead of throwing them out and I'm so glad I did.  What do you do with your over ripe apples?

This turned out great a moist apple pie like inside with a crunchy topping. YUM

Gluten Free Apple Crumb Dessert
4 cups chopped apples
1 box of your favorite gluten free yellow cake mix
2 TBS Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 TBS Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all dry ingredients except for cake mix and set to the side. Peel and chop apples toss the lemon juice as you go. Mix apples with premixed dry ingredients. Put apples in a 9x9 cake pan. Sprinkle yellow cake mix on top. Pour melted butter over cake mix.

New Improved Taco Soup

1 lb. ground venison or beef
1 sm sweet onion
2 - 14.5 oz cans Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 - 10 oz. Original Rotel Tomatoes
1 - 4.5 oz. can Green Chilies Mild
1 - 15 oz. can Red Kidney Beans
1 - 15 oz. can Black Beans
2 - TBLS Ranch Dressing Mix
1 1/2 TBLS Taco Seasoning

Brown ground meat and onion in a large pot until meat is cooked well and onion is transparent.

Gluten Free Bisquick Biscuits or Rolls

Honey loves sausage gravy and I've always made it full of gluten but while shopping at Kroger I ran across Pioneer Gluten Free Country Gravy, 2.75 Ounce (Pack of 12)  and I couldn't wait to try it. Last weekend I decided to not only make sausage gravy but to make easy Gluten Free Bisquick Biscuits or some people use them as rolls either way they are wonderful.

These biscuits have only four ingredients and can be made from start to finish in only thirty minutes.

Bisquick Biscuits or Rolls

Yields 12 servings


2 cups Gluten Free Bisquick
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup 7 Up soda
1/4 cup Butter


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place butter in a baking pan or iron skillet and let melt while oven is heating. When butter is melted take pan out and set to the side.

Cut yogurt into Bisquick then add 7 Up and mix forming a soft dough.

Sprinkle parchment paper with a little Bisquick mix then add dough and pat it out to about 1/2" thick.

Cut biscuits up and arrange them in pan on top of melted butter.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

These biscuits are wonderful soft inside with a buttery slightly crunchy outside. We loved them with the sausage gravy but I can see how they would be the perfect compliment to any meal!

Mini Apple Pie

Honey's favorite dessert is homemade apple pie. We've been trying to eat healthier so I have not made one in a while. When planning something special for Valentines I decided that I wanted to make him a treat instead of buying one, so much better for you. I didn't want to make it gluten free because after all it was to be Honey's treat and not mine. So what better treat than his own personal Apple pie.

So after dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant Honey had Apple pie. I had one happy man for Valentines. 

He also made brownie points by buying me a piece of my favorite pottery by Etta B.

By the way you could easily make it gf, just used a gf pie crust and substitute corn starch for the flour.

Here's what I did:

Mini Apple Pie

1 Pkg Pillsbury Prepared Pie Crust
2 Granny Smith Apples, quartered, peeled and thinly sliced
1 TBLS Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Splenda
1/2 TBLS Flour
1/2 TBLS Cinnamon 
1/4 TSP Nutmeg
1 TBLS Salted Butter

Preheat oven to 375.
Cut pie crust to fit small plate. I used a pottery bowl. After placing in plate cut a few slits and pre-bake for about 5 minutes. Set to the side.
Peel and cut apples into small thin slices.
Place in a bowl and toss with lemon juice.
Combine spices and toss with apples.
Place in pie shell.
Slice butter thin and place over Apple mixture.
Either roll out left over pie crust or cut in strips and place over top of pie.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
