Happy Thanksgiving from Gluten Free Hudson Valley!
We’re hoping you’re enjoying this holiday with family and friends, surrounded with good (gluten free) food.
For an easy, inexpensive dessert that’s as American as apple pie, try this apple pie-like combination. Be warned, it’s a bit of a pseudo-recipe. I was too lazy to make dessert from scratch after prepping the rest of the food. This one’s for you, my fellow couch nappers.
Apples A La Mode (serves 6)
-One gallon of vanilla ice cream (we used Turkey Hill Original Vanilla)
-One to two cans of apple pie filling, 20 oz. (we used Mother’s Maid apple pie filling, but any kind will do.)
-Ground cinnamon, ~2-4 tsp. (we used Walgreens brand “Nice!” ground cinnamon)
This is gluten free dessert for the super lazy.
Step 1: Wash and open the can(s) of apples. Dump into ceramic baking dish. Stir in cinnamon and heat for 10 to 15 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees, until warmed.
Step 2: Scoop out ice cream into individual serving bowls. Serve with apples on top. Sprinkle on additional cinnamon if desired.
Step 3: Stuff your face, because your stomach has a dessert compartment as well as a dinner compartment.
Bam! Super easy, super delightful, and there will be no complaints from the non-gluten free crowd. It’s hard to argue with a bowl of sugar and fruit in front of you.
If you prefer a pie crust without the hassle, you can try Pillsbury’s gluten-free pie crust. It’s available at most major supermarkets (and Walmart!), so it should be available even in areas where it’s hard to find gluten free food. If you’re having a hard time finding it, use the General Mills Product Locator here to find your fave Pillsbury gluten free goodies.
