This is one of my favourite Thanksgiving desserts. The apples are especially perfect in the autumn season. The leftovers make an even better breakfast! Simple, delicious and did I mention gluten free? The topping is a crispy and sweet, that pairs exceptionally well with the apples. I love using Empire or Fiji apples as they are crisp, juicy and have the best crunch. It is best served with some vanilla ice cream. Hope you share it with some loved ones this holiday.
