Apple Brown Betty

Comment on this recipe

Old time mincemeat was a blend of meat, fruit and suet. Today, most mincemeat contains no meat, but is made from dried fruit, cider and spices. It is sold in jars in the baking isle.

Ingredients

For the fruit
2 Granny Smith apples
2 McIntosh apples
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons Kirsh (cherry brandy)
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup mincemeat
For the topping
4 slices day-old white bread, chopped into rough bread crumbs
1/4 cup (packed) light brown sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
Sweetened whipped cream for garnish

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan. Peel and core apples. Cut into 1-inch chunks and place in a large bowl. Toss apples with sugar, Kirsch, salt and mincemeat. Spoon mixture into prepared baking pan. Prepare topping. Place bread crumbs, light brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon and pecans in a bowl. Add melted butter and mix in thoroughly. Sprinkle topping evenly over apple mixture. Bake until top is browned and crunchy, about 40-45 minutes. Serve warm topped with sweetened whipped cream.
