  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans, reserve for only the crumb topping

  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 2 tbs lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbs cranberry juice (the real stuff with no sugar added)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat melt the butter.
  3. With a fork, in a large bowl, mix the crust/topping ingredients together except for the chopped pecans. Reserve 1 cup of the mixture, for the topping, and set aside. Press the remainder into a 8x8 inch glass baking dish.
  4. With a wooden spoon or spatula, stir together the filling ingredients and pour into the baking dish over the crust.
  5. Mix the cup of reserved crumb topping with the chopped pecans, sprinkle the crumb over the filling.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool and serve.
Notes
Instead of an 8x8 inch baking dish try a 9 inch pie pan and serve just like you would your favorite pie.
