Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to use gluten free flour?

Nope! You can use regular all purpose flour at a 1:1 ratio

How many does this serve?

To be honest, my boyfriend has eaten this entire thing himself…but usually over 2-3 days. I would say this serves about 6-8 people.

Do I have to peel the apples?

Nope! I sometimes prefer to leave the peel on for texture (and it saves time).

How do I know the apple crisp is done baking

You will know the crisp is done baking when the edges are golden and the crumble on top is fully cooked. The apples should be soft and bubbling.

If there are leftovers, how should they be stored?

Once the apple crumble is fully cooled, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days!
