    Make the topping: In the bowl of a food processor, combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, walnuts, cinnamon, and butter. Pulse until the mixture is crumbly and still clumpy.

    Make the filling: In a large bowl, combine the apples, cranberries, brown sugar, honey, bourbon, lemon juice, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Stir gently to combine.

    Pour the filling into the prepared skillet. Scatter the topping evenly over the fruit.
