Cranberry Apple Casserole With Oatmeal Topping
My husband’s cousin Jennifer Stimpson introduced us to this dish. Jennifer is an amazing baker.
She is well favored for bringing something sweet and incredible to share at our family gatherings. And I am always asking her to share those lovely recipes.
When she made this Cranberry Apple Casserole, I was trying to behave myself and only have small portions of sweets that day.
Well…. one bite of this and I was hooked. I couldn’t control myself. I kept eating and eating it simultaneously saying, “OH MY GOSH, I LOVE THIS!” This recipe really should be called, “CRANBERRY CRACK!
I am all about sweet and tart combinations; add in the crispy, buttery, oatmeal topping and BOOM! This is a very easy recipe. It is a wonderful recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas while fresh cranberries are in season.
