Apple & Pear Crisp

{tis the season, for apples}
It's come to my attention that many of you in the US are no where near experiencing fall like weather. Unfortunately, I am. I'm enjoying the scent of falling leaves and am being forced to finally shut my windows. I've also noticed the abundance of apples in the grocery stores. So, it only seemed necessary to bake something with apples. Thus, this beauty!
sorry it's kinda blurry
2 Pears
3 Apples
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

For the topping:
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
2 sticks of butter (yikes!)

Preheat oven to 350F. Peel, core, and cut pears and apples into chunks. Mix in a large bowl the pears, apples, zests, juices, flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Once it's well combined, scoop the mixture into a 8x8 inch baking dish (if you want it a little thinner, you can use a large dish such as 9x13).

To make the topping, mix all the ingredients together with a fork until it's crumbly. Top to fruit, and bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve warm, preferably with vanilla ice cream. :)
