Summer is winding down, and the first apples of the season are tight around the corner. I love apple desserts. I love baked apples, apple cobbler, apple streusel, and, of course, apple crisp. This recipe makes a delicious gluten-free apple crisp that will bring smiles all around the table. It tastes great on its own, or goes great with vanilla ice cream, or frozen yogurt.

4 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples
½ cup of golden raisins (optional)
1 tablespoon potato flour
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon cornstarch
¾ cup rolled gluten-free oats
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup white sugar
½ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, add flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir until the mixture is crumbly.

Press half of the oat mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Add a layer of sliced apples.

In a medium saucepan, add white sugar, cornstarch, water and vanilla.

Cook while stirring for about 10 minutes, until it is clear and thick.

Pour this mixture over the apples in the baking dish. Cover apples with remaining crumble mixture.

Place in a hot oven, and bake for about 45 minutes.

When it is bubbly and golden, remove, cool and serve with vanilla ice cream, or frozen yogurt.
