Cranberry Apple Crumble Squares

Great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce in a square that's to die for, whether you serve it warm and topped with vanilla ice cream, or right out of the fridge.

1 large Granny Smith apple
1/2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1 tbsp. lemon juice
3/4 cup each all-purpose flour and rolled oats
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Peel, core and thinly slice apple. Place in a bowl along with cranberry sauce, cranberries and lemon juice. Stir until mixed.

In a medium bowl, stir flour with oats, sugars, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt until mixed. Using your fingers, mix in butter until well combined and crumbly.

Press half the oat mixture on base of pan. Spoon fruit mixture overtop, evenly distributing fruit. Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over fruit, pressing in lightly. Bake until crumble is golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool before cutting. Store squares in pan in fridge.

Makes about 20 squares.
