Apple Betty

Recipe from Better Homes and Garden Cookbook

When I was 12 years old I can remember making this.  I loved it so much I watched my mom one night making it so I could replicate it.  This is from the OLD cookbook.  When I first was married I bought the newer BHG cookbook and a lot of the recipes I grew up on were either gone or altered.  This was one of those recipes that they left out.

Apple Betty

4 cups pared tart apples(Granny Smith)
¼ c. orange juice
1 c. sugar
¾ c. sifted all-purpose flour
½ t. ground cinnamon
¼ t. ground nutmeg
½ c. butter
Mound Apples in 9-inch buttered pie plate; sprinkle with OJ.  Combine sugar, flour, spices and salt; cut in butter till mixture is crumbly; sprinkle over apples.  Bake @ 375 degrees for 45 minutes or till apples are tender and topping is crisp.  Serve with warm cream.
