Description

Spiced sweet-tart fruit under a crunchy oatmeal crust … who could ask for anything more?

Ingredients

  • ¾ cups All-purpose Flour, Divided
  • ¾ cups Light Brown Sugar, Divided
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • ⅓ cups Quick Cooking Oats
  • 1-½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, Divided
  • 3 whole Apples. Peeled, Cored And Thinly Sliced (I Use Granny Smith)
  • 3 whole Pears, Peeled, Cored And Thinly Sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Crystallized Ginger
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 whole Lemon, Zest And Juice

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, butter, oats and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix until large pieces form. (I cut the butter into the dry ingredients with my pastry blender.) Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup brown sugar, apples, pears, ginger, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon lemon zest.

Spread the fruit in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over the top.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the fruit mixture is tender and bubbly. Cool for 15 minutes.

Garnish with whipped cream, if desired … vanilla ice cream tastes mighty good, too! Makes 8 servings.

I made this today. It’s good, not great. I thought it lacked sweetness. Slicing the fruit thin makes the crisp watery. Also I used “uncrystallized” candied ginger – which is what I had in the pantry. 2 tablespoons is a bit much and really punches up the spice. You want to use a single tablespoon of the crystallized ginger. Hopefully, it will get better as it sets.

I made this tonight and it was delicious! I used macintosh and golden delicious apples, about equal amounts of pear and apple. I forgot the nutmeg but will be sure to add it next time. I also added 1/2 cup flour and about 3/4 cup oats to the topping, might throw in some walnuts or pecans next time! Thanks for this easy and delicious (and versatile!) recipe, it will be a repeat for sure.
