In a small mixing bowl pour enough boiling water over the raisins to cover them. Let stand for 5 minutes, then drain raisins.
For topping, in a medium mixing bowl stir together rolled oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in margarine of butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chopped pecans. Set topping aside.
For filling, in large mixing bowl combine drained raisins, sliced apples, and sugar, then gently toss till combined. Transfer the filling to an ungreased 9" X 9" X 2" baking pan.
Sprinkle the topping on the filling. Bake in a 375F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or till the apples are tender and topping is golden. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings.
