  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x12-inch baking dish.
  2. Heat the orange juice, sugar, and about half the cranberries in a saucepan over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil; simmer until the cranberries pop, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix in the apples and the rest of the cranberries. Remove from heat, allow to cool for several minutes, then pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and oats. Stir in the butter until thoroughly incorporated, then sprinkle the oat topping over the fruit mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is bubbling and the oat topping has begun to brown, about 45 minutes.

Love it!

I cut this recipe in half and baked in a 9x7" Pyrex dish. The only thing I changed was to add about 1 T of flour to the topping. I think it turned out perfectly. People complaining about tart...

This was and awesome recipe! Nice change for a dessert instead of cookies, cakes and pies. Its sweet and tart and perfect just the way it is. I made it exactly as the recipe stated except I had ...

This was less sweet than I expected but we enjoyed it with ice cream. I don't cook with cranberries often and usually the sugar in the recipe hides more of the tartness. Hard to know that up fro...
