6 cups apple slices, thin to medium slice
1/3 cup apple juice
¾ cup finely ground almond meal/flour
½ cup coconut flour
½ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
2 tablespoons sugar
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In medium bowl toss apple slices and juice. Turn into an 8-inch square baking dish; set aside.
Wipe bowl dry and combine flours, brown sugar and spices until evenly mixed. Add cold butter and blend mixture with fingertips until crumbly and a few small pieces of butter remain. Sprinkle sugar over all and stir to combine; sprinkle topping over fruit to cover evenly.
Bake crisp 50--55 minutes until topping is deep golden brown and tester inserted in center easily pierces fruit. Do not under bake. If topping begins to brown too early, reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.
Baker's hint: 2½ teaspoons apple pie spice can be substituted for all the spices in the recipe.
