OK I'll post the recipe exactly as it is then tell you what I really do LOL
Apple Brown Betty
4C sliced granny smith apples
1/4 C orange juice
3/4 C flour
1 C sugar
1/2 tspn cinnamon
1/4 tspn nutmeg
1 stick butter chilled
375° bake about 45 min
OK I don't use any juice. Tho I used to. In fact once my mom and I made it when I was little and all we had was HiC juice boxes and we used that LOL
Slice apples and pile into a pie plate
mix flour sugar cinnamon nutmeg and salt and then cut in butter. Pea size is what you're going for.
Pour this on top of the apples being sure to mound it thickest at the top of the mound of apples. 375° about 45 minutes.
Now this usually comes out some baked apples and some apple sauce. We like it like that. DO NOT slice your apples thin. Slice like into 8 pieces otherwise you will really have applesauce. We like it better the second day and fight over the main big crunchy bit on the top.
I have a picture of the last one I made let me find it LOL
