Brown Betty

This oh-so yummy photo of Apple Brown Betty stopped me in my WP tracks this morning. 😉 I want some right now.

I make a similar dessert but definitely not with that much butter or sugar. 😦 The photo did inspire me to make some soon though. 🙂 Do you have a fav Brown Betty recipe?

Have a fabulous late autumn weekend. It’s still nice and warm, here in BC. 🙂

Brown Betty is a traditional American dessert made from fruit (usually apple) and sweetened bread crumbs. It is similar to a cobbler or apple crisp, and the fruit is baked.  It is an old dessert, first mentioned in print in 1864.  Apple Brown Betty was one of the favorite desserts of Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House.  They served Apple Brown Betty at my elementary school cafeteria and I loved it.  They served real food back in the sixties and seventies!

The Best Gingersnap Cookies


This is one of my favorite basic cookie recipes.  The Best Gingersnap Cookies from Not Just for Vegetarians was a recipe that my friend Valerie’s mom shared with me and graciously allowed me to include in my cookbook.

I’ve tasted a lot of gingersnaps over the years and these always come in at #1!  Not too sweet either; just plain good. 😉
