1 Pie Crust

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp cornstarch

1 c all-purpose flour

½ c granulated sugar

4 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and finely diced

¼ c granulated sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ c firmly packed light brown sugar

½ tsp kosher salt

2/3 c rolled oats (not instant)

10 tbsp cold, unsalted butter, chopped


To start preheat your oven to 350°F.

Prepare your muffin tin by spraying or lightly greasing it. You may need two tins, for this.

Roll out your pie crust. Cut out 24 circles, each 2 inches, in diameter. If you have any leftover dough simply roll it out again.

Gently press each circle of crust into the wells of the muffin tin.

In a saucepan combine your apples, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and cornstarch. Cook them over medium heat until the apples are tender and the mixture thickens.

For the topping take another bowl. Mix together flour, sugars, salt, oats and butter. Blend them until you get a texture.

Spoon a tablespoon of the apple mixture into each crust in the tin.

Add two tablespoons of the crumble topping on top.

Optionally; lightly spray the tops with canola oil for a cohesive topping.

Bake them in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes until they turn a brown color.

Allow them to cool completely in the tin before removing them.


Turning these Apple Crisp Cookies into a gluten-free version is not only easy but also adds a whole new level of flavor and texture. Begin by substituting the pie crust with your gluten-free option – you can find some great choices, at local stores or even make your own using a combination of gluten-free flours. When it comes to the crumble topping make sure to use certified gluten-free rolled oats to avoid any cross contamination. Instead of all-purpose flour switch it up with a blend of gluten-free all-purpose flour; these blends are specifically formulated to replicate the texture and baking properties of regular flour.
