These days, more and more people are eating a gluten-free diet. And it's not always easy, especially when it comes to baking. I've got two great gluten-free recipes that will please everyone, whether they're eating a gluten-free diet or not.

Hi, I'm Cricket Azima. We're going to bake a gluten-free Impossibly Easy French Apple Pie. Preheat the oven to 325. Spray a nine inch pie pan with cooking spray. Mix thinly sliced peeled apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg together.

Try using different types of apples, like empire, regent, or spartan for different flavors. Then, pour your mixture into the pie pan. You can also experiment with other fillings, like peaches or fresh berries. The next step is to make a batter starting with Bisquick Gluten-Free mix.

Add sugar, milk, eggs, and melted butter or margarine. Now, this is a good time to remind yourself that it's always good to read the product labels to make sure everything is gluten-free.

Once you've mix the ingredients together, pour them over the apples. And then, we're onto the last step. In a separate bowl, make a streusel topping by mixing Bisquick Gluten Free baking mix, some firm butter, brown sugar, and some chopped nuts.

Then, I'm going to use a fork to break up the ingredients until they're really well combined into a crumbly texture. Then, sprinkle the topping over the pie.

I'm going to spread the topping evenly to cover the apples. Now, you're going to bake your pie for 45 to 50 minutes. Once your pie is done, you can serve it warm and top it with vanilla ice cream, or even some homemade whipped cream.

And there you have it. Impossibly Easy Gluten-Free French Apple Pie.

Now I'm going to show you another delicious treat your family can enjoy any time. Gluten-free snicker doodles. This recipe is really simple and quick. Start by preheating your oven to 375. Then, in a large mixing bowl, start with some premade mix.

You're going to stir together with some eggs, sugar, softened butter, and shortening. You're going to form a nice dough. And then, roll the dough into one inch balls.

Then, simply dip them into some cinnamon and sugar and place them on a baking sheet about two inches apart. Then, you're going to pop them in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. So there you go. Gluten-free sticker doodles.

From everyday treats like snicker doodles and Impossibly Easy French Apple Pie, gluten-free baking can be a snap. I'm Cricket Azima, bringing you great ideas from Betty Crocker with Howdini. To see more of our videos for easy recipes you can make with your kids or for your family, visit us at
