Gluten Free Dessert: Apple Crisp and Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

I recently was making dinner for a family that needed gluten free food.  I decided to make marinated chicken  and rice, served with salad and fresh cut watermelon.  A great gluten free dessert I decided to make was apple crisp and homemade vanilla ice cream. Here are my dessert recipes:

Apple Crisp
7 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup oats (rolled or quick)
1/2 cup butter

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, combine apples, lemon juice and vanilla.
2. Mix together.
3. Layer apples (in slices or cubes) in a 9x12 inch baking dish.
4. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and oatmeal in a bowl.
5. Cut butter into the mix.
6. Sprinkle sugar mixture over the apples in the baking dish.
7. Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crunch and apples are tender.
8. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
