A very yummy, fairly easy, gluten-free (but you can't tell) dessert. This is very forgiving; I kind of made up the amounts I used and it turned out well, but it could be altered and still turn out well, I'm sure.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 apples, cored and sliced
  • 14 cup margarine
  • 0.5 (8 ounce) bagmidel arrowroot cookies (gluten-free animal crackers, or could try other cookies)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • cinnamon
  • clove


  1. Put the apples in a baking dish (I used a 1-quart glass one). Put a few tablespoons of water in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the apples with the sugar, and a dash of cinnamon and cloves.
  2. Grind cookies into crumbs in a food processor, or put them in a ziplock bag and crunch them up with a rolling pin.
  3. Add the margarine to the crumbs and process or cut in until the mixture turns into coarse crumbs and no lumps are visible.
  4. Pour crumbs over the apples in the dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until the crumbs darken and turn light brown (keep your eye on it).
