Apple-Cranberry Walnut Crisp

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 10 servings
The combination of oats, whole wheat pastry flour and walnuts makes the topping taste a little like a granola bar. This dish can be made ahead and warmed in a 250º oven while you eat dinner. It's great served with low-fat vanilla ice cream.
