Fall is in the air, and nothing says "Fall" to me quite like fresh apples.  My grandma made tray after tray of apple bars for us to snack on, and my brothers and I would argue endlessley over whether apple pies should have a top crust on them, or should have cinnamon-laced crumbles on top of them.

Fortunately, one of the tastiest fall apple treats is also very easy to make in a Dutch oven: Brown Betty.


  • 6 cups of cored and peeled, tart apple slices
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup softened butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Heat charcoal.
  2. Core, peel and slice apples. Put apple slices in dutch oven and sprinkle with sugar
  3. In a bowl or pot, mix together brown sugar, oats, flour, butter, pecans, cinnamon and nutmeg. Top the apples with this mix.
  4. Bake about 25-30 minutes  in Dutch oven (place 8 briquets under the dutch oven and 14 briquets on top).
