Apple Pie Crisp

Please forgive my absence. I haven't had much time for baking, let alone posting and taking pictures. This post, however, was done almost entirely by my daughters. Nikki wrote the recipe and baked the crisp and Amanda took the pictures and uploaded them for me. Thank you girls! We are calling this apple pie crisp because instead of my traditional crisp filling (which is simply sliced apples), it has a thick sweet apple pie filling. The crisp was eaten so fast that we had to make it twice before I had enough left to get a picture of one small piece! Enjoy!!!

Filling:8 cups (about 5 large) of granny smith apples
1/2 c Granulated sugar
2 T Tapioca starch
1/2 t Nutmeg
1/2 t Cinnamon
1 t Vanilla extract
1 t Lemon juice
Dash of salt

Pare and slice apples. Place in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well, we used our fingers :) lay apples in the bottom of a medium baking dish.

1 c Brown sugar
1 c Gluten free oats
1/2 c Gluten free oat flour
1/2 c Spectrum shortening
1/8 t Salt

Mash all of the topping ingredients together until there are no longer large lumps of shortening.
Sprinkle the topping over the apples. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
