October 5 is Apple Brown Betty Day! As the weather gets chillier and the sun sets earlier, sometimes you need to make yourself a warm treat after a long day -- this is it. The most strenuous part of the recipe is preparing the apples, but it's totally worth it. Try it for yourself (and don't forget the ice cream)!
Apple Brown Betty (Serves 6)

6 tbsp unsalted butter
2 ½ lbs Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, quartered, and sliced about ¼-inch thick
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 ¼ cups stale plain cake crumbs or soft fresh bread crumbs
½ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground allspice
¼ tsp ground ginger
Pinch ground cloves
Pinch salt
⅓ cup apple cider
Vanilla ice cream, for serving

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Using 1 tablespoon of the butter, liberally coat a 1 ½-quart shallow baking dish. In a medium bowl combine the apples and lemon juice and toss to combine. In a small bowl combine the cake crumbs, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves and salt and toss to thoroughly combine. Scatter 3 tablespoons of the crumb mixture onto the bottom of the baking dish and top with half of the apples. Drizzle the apple cider over the apples then top with about half of the remaining crumb mixture. Dot with half of the remaining butter. Repeat with the remaining fruit, crumbs, and butter. Bake until the apples are bubbly and tender and the crumbs are nicely browned, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool briefly on a wire cooling rack before serving warm, with scoops of ice cream on top.
