Easy Gluten-Free Apple Cobbler recipes: My favorite gluten-free apple dish is this gluten-free apple cobbler recipe. It has a mix of crisp apples from fall and a topping that looks like biscuits but puffs up and turns golden brown and tasty. Adding a big scoop of vanilla ice cream makes this dessert perfect.

  • Spoon the dough all over the top of the apple filling. The filling should be mainly covered with some pieces filling showing through. Optional: Sprinkle extra sugar or cinnamon and sugar over the top.
  • Bake uncovered until the fruit is bubbling and the top is golden, about 40 to 55 minutes. If it looks like it’s getting too brown, cover it loosely with aluminum foil. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
