It’s so fun to gather around the table this time of year for a big belly-filling meal. Top it all off with a delicious dessert and it’s total nirvana. I love desserts that make the most of seasonal harvests. This Apple Pear Betty recipe does just that. Bursting with ripe apples, juicy pears, brown sugar and cinnamon spice, this will be the hit at any feast and holiday table. A great alternative or add to your Thanksgiving pie selection.
If you are wondering what a Betty is, that’s a great question. This is a traditional dessert that the books say was named after a home cook named…you guessed it, Betty! What makes it unique is the golden brown, buttery bread crumbs that make up the crumbly, crunchy topping.
