  • In a separate bowl combine lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Toss mixture with apples to cover.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugars, oatmeal and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture becomes crumbly.
  • In the prepared pan, layer the sliced apples and sprinkle the topping evenly over apples.
  • Sprinkle dried cranberries and quartered caramel pieces over topping.
