Last week, I made a pot pie with a gluten-free crust. And it was fantastic. But the crust? Oh my god, I never knew I could get gluten-free to be so flaky and perfect, with the same consistency of traditional wheat/gluten flour. Any non-glutard would never know the difference.

Man oh man, I must eat this now.

The pot pie recipe called for a massive amount of gluten-free dough, so I had some left over. Labor intensive? Just a bit. Taste factor? It’s massive. And it has considerably less sugar than most recipes. It’s enough to push you out of the celibate date threshold. Or if you’re in a relationship? Enough to get you out of a relationship rut. And if you’re in the doghouse, this just might do the trick too.

Apple Cobbler With Gluten-free Crust

You’ll need these. They’re called ramekins, or tiny little baking dishes. They hold 8 ounces and cost $2 bucks each at any kitchen supply store. They’re oven and microwave safe and make you look like a champ.

Ramekins

Bake her an individual pie, and watch what happens.

Start with the filling.

  • 4 Braeburn apples, peeled, cored and cut into small-ish pieces
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or if you have it, one half of a vanilla pod, seeds scraped out)
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of packed brown sugar
  • an egg wash or almond milk

After you’ve cored and peeled the apples, turn on a saute pan to medium and add butter. Add the vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg into the butter. ┬áThen add apples. Stir, add salt and saute for 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Fill the ramekins with the cooked apples to the brim and set aside. No butter or oil is needed, unless you want it. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

The crust.

I already had this made from last week, so all I had to do was roll it out. But if you need the recipe, check it here. (OPTIONAL: a cup of of sharp grated cheddar in the dough can turn this dessert into something special if you love apple pie with a slice of cheese!) Sprinkle the dough and cutting board. Place the dough between two sheets of wax paper, then use a floured rolling pin and gently make it as flat as possible. Work fast though! You want this dough to be as chilled as possible. Once you have a thin layer of dough, use another ramekin to cut a round piece.

Place the round piece of dough on top of the apple filled ramekin. Use a fork to pinch the dough towards the edge of the baking dish. Make a slight slit on top, and brush a beaten egg (or almond milk if you want to omit the egg) over the dough.

Place the ramekins on a baking sheet, and my oven only needs 20 minutes to have what is now my favorite dessert.

Eat.
