Apple Crisp

My own recipe. I made this up in 1993 right after I got married.

1 ½ cups quick cooking oatmeal (not instant)
1 ½ cups dark brown sugar
½ cup flour
½ whole wheat flour
¾ cups chopped pecans
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
6 to 8 Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced thin
½ cup cranberries (fresh or dried) - optional
2 pears, cored and sliced thin. – optional
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Combine oatmeal, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and nuts; cut in butter. Set aside.
Place apple, pears and cranberries in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar, the cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice. Mix well. Add more sugar if necessary.
Place the apple mixture in the baking dish. (should fill dish about ¾ full.) Sprinkle oatmeal mixture on top. Bake 30 to 35 minutes until light brown on top and bubbly in center.Serve warm with cheese wedges, ice cream, or whipped cream if desired
