Servings 6 servings



  • 3/4 cup quick rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 1/3 cup pecans


  • 6 apples
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier liqueur
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg



  • Combine rolled oats, brown sugar, flour and butter in food processor. Whirl until crumbly.
  • Add pecans and whirl until they are coarsely chopped and blended in.


  • Peel and core apples and cut into thin slices. Combine in casserole dish with cranberries.
  • Drizzle Grand Marnier over apple mixture.
  • In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle over apple mixture in casserole and toss to combine evenly.
  • Sprinkle topping over apple mixture.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F. for 50 to 55 minutes, until apples are tender.
  • Serve warm, topped with ice cream if desired.


The Grand Marnier adds a special taste to this dessert, but if you don't have any on hand you can substitute orange juice (and add a little grated orange rind).
Make this gluten-free by using gluten-free rolled oats, and substitute a gluten-free all purpose flour blend for the regular flour.
