I have told you about this great product that I found last fall called Chebe, it’s a mix that I used to make my daughter some cheese biscuits and they were outstanding! I personally have not been able to find any mixes other than the cheddar cheese biscuit mix in my area here in the Mitten. However I have gone on line and discovered they have four mixes and look fantastic!!! Here is the link http://www.vitacost.com/chebe-cinnamon-roll-mix-gluten-free?csrc=GPF-PA-697301100470&ci_gpa=pla&ci_kw=&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=697301100470&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=697301100470&gclid=CPmcoqLu_7kCFXRp7AodxwQAfg
The price on the mixes is better than I get in the store but I have not checked out shipping yet 🙂 IF you find the mixes, they sent me this terrific recipe for an Apple Tart that looks divine and since it’s apple season here in the Mitten I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy!!!!
If you have found the mixes in a store/on line, please drop me a note and let me know so I can share the information. firstname.lastname@example.org
Gluten Free Apple Tart
1 – 7.5 ounce package of Chebe Cinnamon Roll Mix
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk or water
6 large apples (about 3 pounds) peeled, cored and sliced into ½ – ¾ inch slices – Granny Smith are one of the best to use
Juice of 1 lemon
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
¼ cup heavy cream
1 tiny pinch kosher or sea salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray an 11” tart pan with a removable bottom with non-stick cooking spray. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Combine the Cinnamon Roll Mix, eggs, 3 tablespoons oil and water (or milk) in a mixing bowl. Stir to combine the ingredients. Pour the dough out on a clean work surface and knead until smooth, 1 – 2 minutes. Place a piece of waxed or parchment paper on a work surface, top with the dough and them another piece of waxed or parchment paper. Roll into a 13 inch circle. Gently transfer the dough to the prepared tart pan. Wrap a sheet of foil around the outside of the tart pan. This will keep your oven clean as the caramel tends to seep out while the tart is baking.
Put the sliced apples in a large mixing bowl and squeeze the lemon juice in. Toss to coat. Add the brown sugar and salt. Mix until the apples are completely coated with the brown sugar. Arrange the apples in a circle around the outer edge of the pan overlapping each other slightly. Continue to arrange the apples in concentric circles working toward the center of the pan. Make sure the apples fit snuggly. Pour the juices accumulated in the bowl over the apples and drizzle on the melted butter. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes or until the apples are tender when pierced with a knife. Check the tart after 35 minutes, once the crust and the tips of the apple slices have browned lay a sheet of foil over the top of the tart and continue baking. Let tart cool in the pan for 10 minutes then remove the foil and outer ring of the tart pan and continue cooling on a wire rack. If the tart cools too much before removing the outer ring of the pan, the caramel will harden making it difficult to get the tart out of the pan. If this happens simply put the tart in a warm oven (300 degrees) for 5 minutes and it should come right out. While the tart cools make the caramel sauce.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, bring all the caramel sauce ingredients to a boil. Stir to dissolve the brown sugar. Continue cooking until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Let the sauce cool slightly then drizzle on top of the tart.
Serve the tart warm or at room temperature.
