I grew up with this recipe, and to me it's just not Fall unless I cook this delicious dish. Oh, help me, I can eat a whole pan of it by myself. It travels well to dinners, is better the next day (if it lasts), has lots of healthy ingredients, and did I mention that it is so delicious that your tongue will beat you to death trying to get to it? I buy many bags of cranberries in the fall so I can make this all year long.
*Honey, I am sorry, but I put in a ton more and leave them whole. The more pecans, the merrier, if you ask me!
Combine apples and cranberries in 9 by 13 inch or similar pan, sprayed with Pam. Sprinkle sugar over fruit. Mix together oats, brown sugar, flour, nuts and salt. Add butter, mixing until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. (I cook mine just until the crust gets good and brown and the fruit is a little bubbly.) Serve warm or cold with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream. Or just plain, because who needs all that other junk cluttering up the best dessert in the world.
