National Apple Betty Day

An apple betty—or apple brown betty—is similar to an apple pie, but has buttered and sweetened crumbs instead of a crust. Bettys may also be made with other fruits such as berries or pears, and their main seasonings are sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. They are often topped with a lemon sauce or whipped cream. The apple betty is American as apple pie, having been eaten during colonial times, mentioned in print in 1864, and eaten by Ronald and Nancy Reagan while they were in the White House—being one of their favorite desserts.
