Apple Betty

I've always wondered why this dessert is called a Betty. How it is different from a Crumble, or a Cobbler, I do not know. But growing up, I was served Betty's! Whatever you call 'em, there is something about a yummy, fruit-filled dessert.

This is my grandma's recipe, swapped and changed a bit to be allergy friendly.

For the Filling:
6-7 Apples {more or less, depending on size}
Cinnamon & Sugar

For the Crumb Topping:
1 1/3 C. Brown Sugar
1 C. Earth Balance
1 C. GF Flour Blend
1 C. GF Oats
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt

Peel, core and slice the apples, layering them in a 9x13 baking dish.
Top each layer with a bit of cinnamon and sugar.
Repeat the process until the baking dish is quite full. Remember, the apples with reduce as they cook. Too few apples will result in a very flat dessert!
Mix the crumble ingredients in a medium bowl, digging in with your hands if you'd like, to help break up the Earth Balance and really mix it in.
Spread the topping over the apples evenly.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the top is golden and the edges are bubbly.
