Pear Apple Crisp

Last week, I caught a little bit of the Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network. She was making a pear apple crisp and I thought it looked fantastic. Here is my own spin on the recipe - I left a few things out, and added a few other things according to our family's preferences.

4 pears - peeled and chopped
6 apples - peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp orange juice
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
For the topping:
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
2 sticks cold butter, diced
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In large bowl, combine fruit, juices, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour into 9 x 12 by 2 inch deep baking dish.
3. Make topping - combine all topping ingredients in stand mixer - mix until mixture is in large crumbles. Sprinkle evenly over fruit.
4. Place a baking dish on top of a sheet pan and bake for 50 minutes until the top is brown and bubbly. Serve warm.
This was fantastic!! The house smelled so good. The kids loved it. The leftovers were great on top of waffles covered with vanilla yogurt for breakfast the next day. Yum!!
