Be amazed by this best-loved recipe that uses gluten-free cake mix to make a crisp cookie crust!  


  • 1 pkg (15 oz/425 g) Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1   egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) pure vanilla extract, divided
  • 8 oz (250 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) creamy peanut butter
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) Mrs. Richardson’s® Butterscotch Caramel Topping
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) dry-roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Brush Large Round Stone with Handles with vegetable oil. Combine cake mix, butter, egg and 1 tsp (5 mL) of the vanilla in Classic Batter Bowl until a coarse crumb mixture forms. Form dough into a ball and place in center of stone; flatten into a disc shape.

  2. Sprinkle top of dough with gluten-free flour. Using Baker’s Roller®, roll dough to a 12-in. (30-cm) circle, sprinkling dough with flour as necessary to prevent sticking. Pat edges with fingertips to create a smooth edge. Bake 17-19 minutes or until golden brown.

  3. Remove stone from oven; cool 5 minutes. Using Large Spreader, gently loosen cookie from stone. Cool cookie completely on stone (a minimum of 1 hour).

  4. When ready to serve, mix cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter and remaining ½ tsp (2 mL) vanilla until well blended. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over cookie.  

  5. Core and peel apples. Cut apples in half crosswise; slice apple halves using Simple Slicer on #2 setting. Cut apple slices in half; arrange evenly over cream cheese mixture.

  6. Place caramel topping in (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowl; microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 30-45 seconds or until warm; drizzle over apples. Sprinkle peanuts over apples.
