Juicy apples and some warm spices make Grandma's Classic Apple Brown Betty one of the best apple dessert recipes you'll ever try. Its warm flavor is so incredibly comforting, almost like those huge bear hugs your grandma used to give you. Surprisingly, this brown Betty recipe doesn't call for any brown sugar, but the spices in the buttery crumble topping surely make up for it. This is one traditional American dish that you and your family are going to want to make over and over again.

Does the orange juice need to be pulp-free, or does it matter in this recipe? I think this would be a good dish to have on movie night. We can put on a little caramel sauce and some vanilla ice cream. Maybe some chocolate sprinkles or a chopped peanuts would be a great way to top off the dessert.
