When preparing this recipe please be sure to check all labels on all products you use to insure that all items are gluten free.
*Use Gluten Free certified Oats to be totally Gluten Free when making this recipe

Instructions

Heat oven to 400 F. Place tea bags in boiling water; steep for 5-8 minutes. Remove tea bags and squeeze to remove liquid; discard bags. Add the black pepper, cardamom, and vanilla to tea concentrate. Set aside while you slice apples. Place apples in a bowl large enough to hold all the filling ingredients, pour tea concentrate over apples and toss well. Let the apples sit with the tea concentrate for a minimum of 5 minutes and up to 10 minutes. Once your apples have soaked, add brown sugar and corn starch to the bowl-stir well. Pour filling into prepared pan and place the pan uncovered in the oven for approx. 20 minutes. Stir the apples after 10 minutes. Continue cooking another 10 minutes -until apples are tender and the tea sauce is bubbling before you add the topping. While apples cook make your topping; gather the brown sugar, oats & spices together in a small bowl. Chop the cold butter fine, add to the topping ingredients. Toss well; it will be lumpy with large crumbs. Set aside. When apples are ready, spread the topping over the apples. Return to the oven for another 10-12 minutes or until the topping is well browned and crunchy looking. Cool slightly before serving. Serve plain or with a dollop of Greek yogurt, whipped cream, heavy cream or vanilla ice cream.

*What is Gluten Free and Gluten-Free Recipes? All vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, beans, nuts, rice, potatoes, and corn are gluten free in their natural state. Also milk and most hard cheeses and creams are naturally gluten free. Recipes using any of these items would be naturally gluten free. The recipes designated Gluten free do not include the following ingredients: wheat, rye, barley, or oats; or ingredients that might contain these, but Bigelow Tea does not assume liability for information reported on our recipes. However, anyone who needs or wants to follow a gluten free (GF) diet should check ingredients and products to ensure they are GF. (For example, sesame seeds are naturally GF, but it’s always wise to check with the manufacturer to make sure that gluten was not introduced to the product during processing.) Bigelow Tea makes no guarantees that the recipes are appropriate for your diet. Individuals should consult with their physician or other medical professional.
