GastroChef – Grain Free Gastronomy

Grain/sugar/gluten-Free Living! (SCD/Paleo/GAPS friendly)

Apple pie cups with an almond flour crust


Today’s post was inspired by a variation of this I saw on that fun app Pinterest. I had seen someone create apple pie cups but using sugar and grain filled pie crust. So I took the idea and i decided to make this SCD friendly! There are a few key things you will need to remember with this recipe. The first is your apple choice. Granny smith are a more tart apple and work really well for apple pies. I highly recommend these. When making your cups use a small spoon or melon baller and slowly scoop out the inside of the apple. Make sure you leave a good 1/4 – 1/2 inch of apple so you don’t go as far down to hit the skin.

The second consideration is the pie crust topping! I made a grain-free almond flour based dough. These dough can be tricky to deal with and handle so i recommend freezing your rolled dough for about an hour before attempting any creations. When ready to handle, limit the time you spend touching the dough to avoid warming it up. The easiest topping is to use a cup and cut out a circle and carefully flip that on top of the apple. If you have some patience try cutting out ribbons and making a fun topping! Either way these cups will turn out great! Serve warm with a side of some of the ice creams we have previously recommended!

A great variation on a classic and one i will definitely be making again!
