Apple Betty

This is a family favorite. There is nothing like a good Macintosh apple in Michigan during the fall. Apple pies, applesauce, baked apples, fresh off the tree, and of course my mom’s OUTSTANDING recipe for Apple Betty. We devour this every time it is made. So today, I decided to make it to enjoy some Michigan Macintosh apples. I doubled the recipe and used a 9×13 pan.

I have also submitted this to Joelen’s Culinary Adventures Mykind of town Thanksgiving Adventure! Even though I am in Tampa now, I will never lose my Michigan roots and my love of everything fall! Check out her blog for all the recipes and great ideas!





  • 4 cups thinly sliced apples  
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon  
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup butter

  2. Mound sliced apples in the pie plate.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Scatter over the apples.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.

My mom would make this on a Sunday with  a great roast beef dinner and everything seemed perfect then. A great meal and a warm comforting dessert after. This is easy to make and is great for all the fall apples out there. Apple Betty […]
