    If there was a 5 that is what I would give this recipe. A refreshing change from chocolate. And the cranberries add a little tartness that is delightful.

    Wow, what a great dessert! Easy to make, fun to serve. Made this for a party last night and it was a huge hit. Making it again tonight for one last holiday party. Yum!

    Can't wait to make it again! We also ate it with whipped cream...first warm, & then cold. Sooooo good! Husband wants me to make it for a dish to pass at his work. Only made a half batch last time to try it, but making a double batch this next time. Yum-Yum-Yum!

    Comforting and just what I was looking for. I served with whipped cream instead of ice cream and made it in separate ramekin dishes since I was serving it as dessert after entertaining friends. Crisp portion could have used a bit more butter and oats in my opinion.

    Everyone loved this recipe-I liked the tartness of the cranberries and thought adding the pears with the apples made a great combination. I served this at my bridge club with a small scoop of vanilla icecream.

    I made this recipe for my bridge club and everyone loved it. I served it warm with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, The cranberrys made the dessert tart and not so sweet. I liked the combination of the pears and apples and not all apples.
