Apple Pie Fries… from the moment I saw them on Pinterest (follow me @IsabelBarganier!) I knew I had to make them gluten free!
They are super easy to make thanks to the new Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pie Crust! (Just bought it at Earthfare, this is not a sponsored post!)
You can enjoy these for breakfast (who doesn’t love apple pie for bfast, miniature pop tarts anyone?) , a fun snack, or dessert. These cute, little fries are lightly sweet and packed with flavor. The filling is simply cooked apples, cinnamon, and optional sweetener! Dip in caramel sauce or on top of vanilla ice cream (paleo banana ice cream!) for an extra kick of yumminess!
-2 cups of Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix (I used half of the bag of pie crust and replaced half of the butter with coconut oil. If you do not want to use the pie crust I used, a simple recipe for pie crust is: 1 1/2 cups of gf all-purpose flour, 4 tablespoons of cold water or milk; Fold in the butter/oil with two forks or a pastry cutter until well combined. Then, lightly stir in the water and follow my recipe!)
-2 medium apples (I used Granny Smith)
-3 tablespoons of Cinnamon
-optional: 1 teaspoon of honey or brown sugar
-1 egg (for egg wash)
Start by following the directions for your pie crust. Once it is all mixed up divide into 2 equal balls of dough and refrigerate while you cook the apples.
Chop your apples roughly and place in a small sauce pan with the cinnamon and 1/4 cup of water. Cook on medium, until the apples are soft. Transfer apples to a food processor, and pulse until they are still thick and still have texture, but almosttt look like apple sauce. (set aside)
Take out your dough and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, roll out both balls into a large rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the apples on one ‘rectangle’ of dough and carefully place the other ‘rectangle’ on top of it. Beat one egg and lightly brush the top of the dough with it. Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon..or a lotta more
Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into fry shapes. With a fork, make a crust on the edges with the tip of the fork or make small holes from top to bottom. Separate the fries and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. (Until golden brown on top!)
