As American as apple betty. Yes, this dessert dates to Colonial times. The warm spiced apples topped with sweet breadcrumbs make it a great stand-in for pie.

    This was very tasty and easy, homey and comfort food. I think the dates pretty much disappear as both a flavor and a texture. We all agreed we'd prefer to add a similar amount of Craisins instead for a little flavor kick.

    My bread crumbs did not come close to being dry after the 12 minutes, so they were very soggy on top of the apple mixture from the start. End result tasted like a soggy, sugary pieces of whites bread on top of apples that weren't cooked enough. 7 hours after serving, it found a home in the garbage disposal. Ugh. :-(
