Apple Brown Betty



So what is a brown betty exactly? Think of it like an apple crisp, but instead of flour and oat topping, bread crumbs are used! We’ve found that homemade bread crumbs are a MUST for this simple recipe—the varieties in shape and size give the dish a completely irresistible texture.
