Cranberry-Apple Nut Crunch
This dessert is especially pretty and appropriate for the holidays. I updated my mother's recipe using instant oatmeal to make it even easier to fix. —Joyce Sheets, Lafayette, Indiana

I like the traditional oatmeal better. The instant oatmeal is too sweet and the texture too fine.
