I thought this Brown Betty interesting and different from the traditional Brown Betty. --- BBB

From Sheila Lukins "Celebrate" - Adapted by BumbleBeeBoogie

For the fruit:

2 Granny Smith apples
2 Macintosh apples
2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1 tablespoons kirsch (cherry brandy)
pinch of salt
1/2 cup commercial mincemeat

Preheat the oven at 375 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan.

Peel and core the apples; cut them into 1-inch chunks and place them in a large bowl. Toss the apples with the sugar, kirsch, salt and mincemeat. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking pan.

For the topping:

2 slices day-old white bread, chopped into rough bread crumbs
1/4 cup (packed) light brown sugar
2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter

Place the bread crumbs, light brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and pecans in a bowl. Add the melted butter and mix in thoroughly with your fingertips. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apple mixture.

Bake until the top is browned and crunchy, about 40 to 45 minutes.

Sweetened Whipped Cream:

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Beat the cream in a large bowl with an electric mixture at medium speed until it becomes frothy. Add the sugar and vanilla; continue beating until the cream holds soft peaks. Do not over beat.

Refrigerate the cream, covered with plastic wrap, for no more than an hour is you are not using it immediately.

Serve the whipped cream over the warm Brown Betty.

Serves 8.

Very interesting variation.

Also, your recipe reminded me that my mother always chopped a Granny Smith apple into a jar of commercial mincemeat for her pies.
