Baked Apples with Cranberries


1 bag of cranberries (about 2 cups)
3-4 firm apples, peeled and chopped (about 3 cups). I used two Granny Smith's and two Braeburns
2 Tbsp flour
1 cup sugar
2 pkgs Instant Cinnamon & Spice Oatmeal (I did not want to buy this so I just put in about 1 - 1 1/2 cups Oatmeal and sprinkled in cinnamon and a little extra sugar)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 stick melted butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix the cranberries and apples together with 2 Tbsp flour. In a second bowl mix sugar, oatmeal, brown sugar, and flour together. Combine fruit mixture with dry mixture. Put in a 9X13 baking dish. Pour melted butter over the top. Sprinkle nuts on top. Bake 30-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Top with whipping cream or ice cream.
