#AppleWeek Apple Brown Betty

I'm continuing to celebrate Apple Week with over 20 bloggers this week and today we're sharing our favorite Apple Sweet Treats!  When I think of apples, I of course start thinking of sweets.  At first I thought I'd share my Old Fashioned Apple Pie recipe, but then I thought I'd go with my go-to apple dish that I love to make as soon as we pick the first apples from our apple tree - Apple Brown Betty.

An Apple Brown Betty is very similar to an apple crisp, except part of the crumb mixture is mixed in with the apples and then more is placed on top.  If your favorite part of a crisp is the topping, you'll love my Apple Brown Betty.  I also have oatmeal in my crumb mixture, because, well, I love oatmeal.  I'm not sure if Brown Betty's are supposed to have oatmeal, but mine does, and I think it gives it that added something.  This is a simple, naturally sweet treat that I love to serve with a scoop, or two, of homemade ice cream on top.

#AppleWeek Apple Brown Betty

Apple Brown Betty

5 to 6 medium-sized apples, peeled and sliced evenly
cinnamon sugar, to taste
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup oatmeal

In a bowl, mix the flower, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and oatmeal.  Sprinkle the sliced apples with cinnamon sugar.  Then toss the apples with half of the crumb mixture.  Put apple mixture into a great 1 1/2 quart casserole.  Sprinkle the rest of the crumb mixture over the top of the apples.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Serve with homemade ice cream.
