Apple Crisp for My Sweet Hubby Who Misses Apple Pie – He Is Yearning for the Old Wheat Pastries that I No Longer Bake – He Always Liked Apple Pie – Apple Crisp Is Almost Apple Pie –

Apple Crisp 1

Shopping for groceries, I pushed a cart through the produce area looking for vegetables. I found celery, cabbage, broccoli, cucumber, and tomatoes, enough for a few days. I looked around for Steve, but I couldn’t find him.

Just around the corner from produce was the bakery where I found Steve holding a single slice of apple pie, staring at it as though he needed to open it and eat it right there.

Steve strongly supports me in my new wheat-free journey. He doesn’t expect me to prepare foods made from wheat, and I do my best to make tasty foods without wheat. I don’t try to keep Steve from eating wheat, even though I think it is not good for anyone. When we go out to dinner, Steve eats wheat and enjoys it.

When I saw that he was longing for an old-fashioned wheat-based pastry, I offered to bake him an apple crisp. He smiled and put down the apple pie slice. As soon as we got home, I took the apples out of the fridge and started to prepare apple crisp.

P.S. The recipe I used for apple crisp is from allrecipes.com. I substituted gluten-free flour for the wheat flour and used gluten-free flour instead of the oats, also. I increased the butter just a little. I also cut the recipe in half.

  1. I love apple crisp. For some reason only vanilla ice cream goes with it best.

    Looks yummy. I think I’d miss the oats, though.

    • I wish I could sample it with the oats, but I discovered that I have a problem with oats. There is gluten in wheat, barley, and rye, and more often than not, there is cross-contamination in oats. Oats are almost always milled and processed into food products on the same equipment and in the same environment as wheat, which causes cross contamination. Ain’t that the pits? My new gluten-free journey is an uphill battle.
