BAKED APPLES & CRANBERRIES WITH CRUNCHY STREUSEL TOPPING

Fruit mixture:
5 medium Granny Smith apples
1 can (16-oz) whole berry cranberry sauce
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp all-purpose flour

Topping mixture:
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

For the filling: Peel, core, and slice the apples. Place the slices on the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, sugar, and flour; mix until well blended. Pour the cranberry mixture over the apples. Be sure all apples are covered with the cranberry mixture.

For the topping: In a small bowl, combine the chopped pecans, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and flour. Pour the melted butter over the mixture and stir to blend together well. Using your fingers, sprinkle the topping mixture over the fruit mixture in the pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown.

Note: This is delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream!
