Love it

I was being too good a “wife, mom and grandma“-made a huge batch of oatmeal chocolate chip bars.  We simply couldn’t eat them all.  

Some were frozen, but even with that-we had just too many!

What do you do when you’ve made a batch of anything that you know is losing its shelf life?  You turn it into something else, of course!

This time, I decided on one of my favorite desserts.  Apple Brown Betty, sort of.

It’s a simple, comforting and warm dessert that is so great for using up leftover cookies.

I didn’t even bother peeling the granny smiths.  I just thinly sliced 2 of them, tossed them with some agave syrup, cinnamon, a dash of salt and a couple of splashes of lemon juice.  I sprayed a 2-1/2 quart casserole with some butter flavored pam and put the apples right in.

Last, I took about 6 cookies and crushed them up-not to fine though and then sprinkled them over the apple mixture.  I dotted them with a couple of teaspoons of coconut oil and popped it in to a 350 oven for about 45, covered.  Uncovered it and baked it for about another 15.

This could only be elevated by either some ice cream or whipped cream.  I was able to get 4 servings out of this amount.

With brown bettys you could use almost any stone fruit or pears in place of the apples and it would be so fantastic!

Tis the season to start making comfort food-even if we here in the great SouthWest see more 100 degree days than any other temperature!

Love it
