Gluten Free Pie Crust and and Spiced Apple Tart

My mom invented this crust recipe for my SIL who is gluten intolerant. It works for cheesecakes and pumpkin pies, but my favorite is this Apple Tart recipe.

Crust

1 1/2 cups ground nuts (I usually just grind pecans in the blender, or almonds.)

1/4 cup sugar

3 tbsp melted butter

Combine ingredients and press into pie shell. Add filling and bake.

Spiced Apple Tart Filling

3-4 Medium Apples

1/4 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp cardamom

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground cloves

Peel and slice the apples thin. Combine the rest of the ingredients and toss into the apples until evenly coated. Put apples in pie shell and bake in the oven at 350F for approximately 20 minutes or until apples are soft and crust is browned. If the crust starts to brown before the apples cook, cover it with tinfoil and bake until done.


Then eat it warm with ice cream. MMMMMM!
