Spiced Apple & Pear Crisp

I made this for the family, because I had too many apples and pears in my fridge. We paired it with a scoop of low fat vanilla ice cream! It was delicious, and low in calories... A "guilt-free" dessert!! I even ate some for breakfast the next morning. Enjoy!

Here's the recipe...
Serves 8-10

1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into small cubes, plus more for buttering the dish
3 Fuji apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (I used 2 gala & 2 pink lady)
3 ripe but firm pears, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon grated ginger (I only used 1/2 tsp, bc of the girls)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly butter a 7-x 11-inch baking dish. In a large bowl, toss apples and pears with lemon juice, granulated sugar, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spoon fruit mixture evenly into prepared dish and set aside.  

In a food processor, pulse flour, oats, brown sugar and salt until combined. Add butter and pulse again until mixture resembles coarse meal. Spread oat mixture evenly over fruit and bake until fruit is tender, juices are bubbly and topping is crisp, 45 to 50 minutes.
