gluten free apple pieI have made the gluten counterpart of this for 30 years. You bake it in a paper sack. Yep. In the oven. Make sure you have ice cream handy.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 375 degrees

Gluten Free Pie Bottom Crust – no rolling required
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup certified gluten free oatmeal flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 tablespoons milk
1. Mix dry ingredients together in bowl
2. Add wet ingredients and mix with fork
3. Press dough into pie pan and flute the edge

Apple Pie Filling
4 1/2 Apples Sliced
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon (i usually put a little more)
2 teaspoon gf flour blend (use extra from topping)
1/2 cup sugar
1. Mix
2. Put in pie tin with bottom crust

GF Pie Crust Topping
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup certified gluten free oatmeal flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
(take out two teaspoon flour mix for pie filling above)
1/2 cup soften butter
1/2 cup sugar
1, Mix.
2. Drop mixture on top of pie filling in crust until mostly covered.

1. Leave only bottom rack in oven.
2. Preheat oven to 375.
3. Put cookie sheets on rack to catch droppings.
4. Place pie in paper sack and fold over edge.
5. Place paper sack in preheated oven making sure sack does not touch any sides or heating elements in oven. Paper sack keeps topping from burning.
6. Cook for 1 hour and 45 minutes, last 15 minutes cut open paper sack to leave hole so top can get toasted. Remove as soon as crust is browned.
7.  Top with ice cream.

Leave uncovered (at least mostly, or topping will get soggy). Leftovers are best cold. Really good for breakfast.
