Gluten Free Apple Crisp

I made this apple crisp for my wife’s one-year-belated-40th birthday party. We couldn’t do anything on her real 40th on account of the pandemic so we threw a backyard gathering this year to mark the occasion. We have a few friends who eat gluten free and my wife loves apple crisp so I took on…
