Oatmeal, Apple and Asian Pear Crisp

Filling

  • 2 cups cooking apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups pears, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 -2 tablespoon lemon juice

Crisp

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine, melted

While peeling apples and pears, keep them in the lemon juice so they don’t turn brown. Place apples in a greased shallow 9” square baking dish. Sprinkle 2 tbsp. brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and water. Combine remaining dry ingredients in a separate bowl; add melted butter, mixing until crumbly. Sprinkle crumb mixture on top of the apples. Bake at 375°F for 30-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve with vanilla ice cream or yogurt.
