Gluten-Free Red Prince Apple Oatcake Crackers
Based on traditional Scottish Oatcakes, we’ve added the sweetness of Red Prince apples for enhanced flavour. These complement the creamy elegance of the Majestic Red Prince Apple soup and can certainly be enjoyed with a simple cup of tea if you wish. They are a delicious, gluten-free option for those who cannot, or choose not to, include wheat in their diet.
1 cup (250 mL) – Red Prince Apple
1 ½ cups (375 mL) – Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Flour
1 cup (250 mL) – Scottish Steel Cut Oats
1 cup (250 mL) – Large Flake Rolled Oats
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 cup Unsalted Softened butter
Makes 24 Servings
Position a rack mid oven and preheat to 400° F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, steel cut oats, rolled oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt.
Add diced apple to the dry ingredients and stir together to coat apple pieces.
Wash hands. Add softened butter to dry ingredients and mix with your hands squeezing the dough until it all sticks together forming a ball.
Cut the ball in half and roll out on parchment paper in an 8” x 10” rectangle or till approximately ¼ inch thick.
With a long knife, press the blade through the dough to cut it cross ways, every inch, to form cracker sticks without cutting through the parchment.
Lift the cracker sticks using the parchment paper and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake the oatcake crackers until golden brown [about 15 minutes].
Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Repeat with other portion of dough.
