Apple Betty

Finally we are getting some apples from our formerly barren trees.

We washed, peeled and sliced a bowl full of the lovely fruit and poured them into a buttered Pyrex baking dish.

Here is my Grandma Ruth’s favorite recipe for Apple Betty or as know by some, as Apple Crisp.

Apple Betty
4 to 6 cups sliced apples
3/4 cups quick oats
3/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup soft butter
Optional: add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Slice the apples into a Pyrex baking dish. Mix the other ingredients in a separate bowl and sprinkle over the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Serve hot or cold. It is also good with some ice cream.

Autumn is the season for apples, so I do suggest you purchase some nice cooking apples and try this delicious and favorite recipe.

It will become your favorite method to serve apples.
