{delightful} Gluten Free Apple Pie

There is nothing like my man strumming a little Elliot Smith to get me in the mood to bake an apple pie. So, while he strummed...

I peeled, cut and sliced my Macintosh and Empire apples in thin slices
And turned my oven to 450 degrees while adding the following ingredients to a mixing bowl:
1 egg white, whisked
3/4 white sugar
1/2 brown sugar
3 T. gluten free flour
1/2 lemon juice, squeezed fresh
1 T. lemon rind
1/4 t. salt
3/4 t. cinnamin
1/2 t. nutmeg
Mix all together and pour into your gluten free pie crust. I get mine at Whole Foods, frozen.
After pouring all into crust, use the second pie crust and ball it together crumbling the dough on top of the pie as a topping. I use about 3/4 of the dough and toss the remaining. Add a handful of brown sugar on top of pie and bake it on 450 for 20-25 minutes on pre-heated baking pan. Then reduce heat to 375 for about 30-40 minutes.
Must serve with vanilla ice cream. yummy. Then serve a plate for your loved ones.

Best to cool and serve at room temperature...
but I can never wait.

I love how rustic this pie looks - although its all about the taste, the visual can be quite important too.

Your pie has both!

Looks yummy! I wish my celiac daughter liked apple pie. Have you ever tried simmering the apples in frozen applejuice concentrate before adding to the crust? I had a recipe once, but the recipe fairy spirited it away!
