Pioneer Woman’s Apple Brown Betty
3 apples, preferably Granny Smith
7 slices wheat bread
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) regular/salted butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons water
Peel apples and slice them.
Slice bread into a small dice, or tear into very small pieces.
Coat baking dish with butter, then add 1/3 of the brown sugar, 1/3 of the apple slices, and 1/3 of the breadcrumbs.
Repeat twice more, ending with breadcrumbs.
Slice butter and lay slices all over the top of the bread crumbs.
Sprinkle dish with water and a little more brown sugar, and bake in a 375-degree oven, covered in foil, until done—about 45 minutes.
Remove foil in last few minutes of baking to brown the top.
Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, or Reddi Whip, if you’re feeling ornery. Enjoy!
