Apple Brown Betty
1 cup dry unseasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
5 cups peeled and sliced apples (5 to 6 medium-
sized apples)

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly butter a 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Combine
the bread crumbs with the white sugar and butter. Pat half of the mixture in
the bottom of the baking dish. Combine the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon,
nutmeg, lemon juice and zest, and walnuts. Spread over the crumbs. Top with
the remaining crumbs. Cover and bake for 40 minutes. Then remove the cover,
increase the heat to 400F, and continue to bake for 10 more minutes. Serve
warm with cream, whipped cream, or ice cream.
