Ingredients

Crust

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup uncooked quick cooking oats
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks

Filling

1 cup sweetened dried cranberries

1/4 cup cranberry-apple juice
2 medium (2 1/2 cups) apples, peeled, cored, chopped
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 teaspoon cornstarch

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine flour, oats, brown sugar and baking soda in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Everyone loves this! I make it for Christmas and it's very festive looking. It's great any time of the year.
Prepare ahead for next day serving. Easier to handle and more flavorful.
These were wonderful and my husband wants to know when I'm going to make them again!
I made this with regular oats, not instant and it came out fine.
cutting them into triangles looks more attractive on a fancy plate before serving
