Inside Out (Gluten Free) Apple Crisp

A twist on the traditional gluten free apple crisp.Honey crisp apples stuffed with a gluten free oatmeal cookies and dripping with caramel. This post was created as a partnership with Goodie Girl Cookies. All opinions are my own.
Fall is more than Pumpkin Spice everything. It is also the beginning of apple season! I love apple season. So many delicious varieties available. We love apples. My daughter and husband’s favorite are “Jazz Apples”, but when it comes to making dessert, Honey Crisp apples are king.
Goodie Girl Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
When I received Goodie Girl’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, I couldn’t help but think they would be perfect for a gluten free apple crisp. The cookies have the perfect combo of oats, cinnamon, and raisins. A little bit chewy and little bit crispy, they have a great texture.
As I was preparing to make an apple crisp, I remembered my husband and I’s first Valentine’s Day. He made an amazing dinner (risotto, asparagus, and salmon!) and for dessert, he made stuffed apples. Coring and filling Honey Crisp apples with cookies, then baking them. They were so delicious. I have been wanting to recreate them but hadn’t found the perfect cookie, until now.
Goodie Girl Oatmeal Raisin Cookies make the perfect filling. Combined with brown sugar and butter, the cookie filling oozes out its own caramel as it bakes. It is to die for.
3 Steps to the Ultimate Fall Dessert: Gluten Free Apple Crisp
Inside out gluten free apple crisp is so easy to make. You can make it for one, two, or the whole neighborhood! There are just three basic steps.
Core the apples
I used a kitchen aid carrot peeler because I did not have an apple corer. Once I got the core out, I used a little spoon to scoop out the inside. Be sure to save the inside pieces from the apple. They will need to be chopped up and combined with the filling.
Fill the apples
Combine the cookies, brown sugar, melted butter, and pieces of apple. Stuff it into the apple and pack it down. You should already see some of the brown sugar and butter mixture starting to spill over.
Bake and admire your fancy looking dessert
As the apples bake, the juice from the apple combines with the sugar and butter, oozing out and creating a luscious caramel that can be spooned over the apples when they are served. It is such a simple dessert, but so pretty, your guests will be impressed.
Inside out gluten free apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts.
