Apple Brown Betty

Fall is the season of baking. I don't know what it is about the crunchy leaves and chill air that makes me want to be June Cleaver. This recipe (provided by The Pioneer Woman) was perfect and easy. It made the house smell delicious, The Husband loved it, and I got to use my adorable Martha Stewart pie dish that has not been used since I bought it last year.

Apple Brown Bettty
3 whole apples
7 slices wheat bread
3/4 cups salted butter
1-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 to 4 Tablespoons water

1. Peel and thinly slice 3 apples. Slice bread into a small dice, or tear into very small pieces.
2. Coat a small baking dish or pie plate with butter. Then add 1/3 of the brown sugar, 1/3 of the apple slices, and 1/3 of the breadcrumbs. Repeat these layers twice more, ending with breadcrumbs.
3. Slice butter and lay slices all over the top of the breadcrumbs. 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.
