NATIONAL APPLE BETTY DAY

Surprise your family today with an old-time favorite Apple Betty dessert as you celebrate National Apple Betty Day.  This American food holiday is celebrated each year on October 5.

Similar to what is known as apple crisp, crumble or cobbler, the American variant known as the Betty or Brown Betty dates from colonial times.  Apple Betty (sometimes called Apple Brown Betty) is made with crumbs, apples, cinnamon, sugar and sometimes other ingredients. 

  • Apple Brown Betty was one of the favorite desserts of Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House. 

Enjoy these “tried and true” Apple Betty recipes:

 I've never had it, but doubt I'd like it as I don't like baked apples.

I made apple crisp before and it was not as good as I thought but I love apple pie which is what I thought it was going to taste like.
