Nothing evokes fall quite like the combination of apples and cranberries. In this recipe, tart Granny Smith apples and dried cranberries are baked under a crisp coating of oats, ground cinnamon, and brown sugar. You and your guests won't be able to get enough of the delightful, sweet crumble. It takes just minutes to put together, but takes about an hour to bake in the oven, so it'll be ready just in time for dessert. You'll find yourself making this recipe over and over again for any fall celebration or after having a fun day picking apples at the orchard. You can also use any dried berry you prefer if cranberries aren't your favorite.
