Apple Cranberry Casserole
4 c. chopped unpeeled apples (I typically use a combo of red and golden or granny smith apples, but any apples will do)
1 12 oz. pkg. fresh cranberries (strained and picked over)
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. melted butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. quick oats
3/4 t. salt
Combine apples and cranberries and place in casserole dish (Pam spray dish first).
Combine pecans and sugar and sprinkle on top of apples and cranberries. (This will seem like A LOT of sugar - bang the casserole dish on the countertop to get sugar to sift down into the fruit.)
Mix butter, brown sugar, oats and salt.
Pat over top of fruit (Sometimes I double the amount of oatmeal topping if it is a wide casserole dish so that it covers the entire top.)
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. This can be a Thanksgiving side dish or a dessert.

We have our Thanksgiving Potluck in the office and I had to share this really great recipe that someone brought in. It was wonderful...notice in the direction how you have to "bang the casserole dish". I *heart* my coworkers. :) The recipe is posted exactly how she emailed it to me.
