Finally we are getting a few 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 Mother Ruth’s favorite recipe for Apple Betty or as know by some as Apple Crisp. This recipe is a keeper and you will want to make a copy of it for your files.
The last time I made this dish, I added a handful of blue berries that I had in the freezer. They were a nice addition to our favorite apple desert.
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 if you do not own an apple tree, I do suggest you purchase some nice cooking apples and try this delicious and favorite recipe.
It will become your favorite method to serve baked apples.
