Cranberry Apple Crisp

From Baking Bites  - nice and easy and quick!
(and good with ice cream)

2-2 1/2 lbs apples (approx 4 large apples)
1 1/2 cups whole cranberries, fresh or frozen.
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oatmeal, rolled oats or quick cooking
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease an 8 or 9-inch square baking pan.

Peel and core the apples, the cut them into relatively thin slices (approx 12 or 16 per apple, depending on the size of the apple). Transfer the slices to a medium bowl, add in the cranberries and toss the fruit with 1/4 cup sugar.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oatmeal, sugar, cinnamon, allspice and salt until well combined. Pour in melted butter and vanilla extract then stir, with a spoon or spatula, until all the ingredients are well-blended and the mixture forms big, moist crumbles.

Transfer apple mixture to prepared baking pan and arrange in relatively flat layer. Top evenly with crumble mixture.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until the apples are tender when poked with the tip of a sharp knife.
Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
