Happy Thanksgiving!

First I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.  I hope you all get to spend the day around a table with great friends and/or family.

Second I would like to share with you this blog post I found called A Colonial Thanksgiving.
They shared a recipie for Apple Brown Betty from The Early American Cookbook (Hyla O’Connor, Prentice Hall, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey: 1974).  If you need a last minute dessert to bring with you tomorrow you can't go wrong with this one!

Apple Brown Betty

signature dish
4 cups large bread crumbs

1/2 cup melted butter

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

pinch of salt

Make alternate layers of crumb mixture and apples in baking dish, ending with bread crumbs. Bake about 1 hour, or until top is a rich golden brown and apples are tender. Serve warm with heavy cream.
