Baked Apples (Gluten-Free)

Fall means apples. Go into the stores now, and you will find a good variety of delicious apples to choose from. Baked apples are one of the easiest, tastiest, gluten-free treats to make during the holidays. I prefer Granny Smiths or Pippins, as their tartness combines well with the sweetness of the filling, and they hold their shape well. But, I've had success with Golden Delicious and Jonathans. I recommend serving these delicious treats with a big helping of vanilla ice cream. Make as many apples as you have people to serve. Scale stuffing accordingly.

Ingredients:
4 large tart baking apples, such as Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Pippin, Jonathan, Jona-Gold, or Rome Beauty
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup chopped pecans, and/or almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, etc.
¼ cup currants or chopped raisins
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 lemon, cut into four wedges
¾ cup boiling water

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Wash apples. Remove cores to ½ inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to first cut out the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about ¾-inch to an inch wide.

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture.

As evenly as possible, drizzle vanilla in equal parts onto the stuffing mixture. Squeeze juice from one lemon wedge over the mixture, and top off with ¼ tablespoon of butter.

Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but firm. Do not overcook, as this will yield mushy apples. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on the side.

Try it with a filling of chopped pecans and orange marmalade. Yumm! In the old days before the gluten-free diet, I used to then surround the apple in puff pastry. When done top with a dollop of whipped cream, creme fraiche, or ice cream.

I'm hoping to donate to celiac research this year. Does anyone have recommendations as to where to donate? Celiac Disease Foundation? Celiac research at a hospital or university? Thanks!

Thank you so much for your responses!! It is so hard because there are so many unknowns, inconclusive results, and lots of waiting!! I didn't realize it was so difficult to even get the tests to begin with. Thank you both SO much. I feel much better & am more comfortable going into my doctors app...

Just looking at its name, one might wonder if buckwheat is safe for people on a gluten-free diet. However, unlike its name, buckwheat does not naturally contain any wheat or gluten. As a result, buckwheat is generally safe for people with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet. Turns out that buc...

Oh my I just re read your post. Ok now I am going to definitely say yes-you need to find someone who will test you. If this Dr. will not you may want to look for one who will. I slowly reveal my issues on here and I still keep things close to the vest. My pregnancies/labor/deliveries we...

I try not to take a lot of ibuprofen as I know it's not great for my gut. But, when I need it, I take Costco's Kirkland ibuprofen. It is labelled gluten free and I have had no issues with it.
