Cranberry, Pear & Apple Crumble

This Cranberry Pear and Apple Crumble mixes large chunks of apples and pears with tart cranberries (either fresh or dried), and tops them with a mixture made with flour, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, rolled oats, nuts, and butter. It is oh so good when served warm from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. We also have a lower calorie recipe too!
