Apple & Pear Crisp













This is the second recipe that I tried from the "It's Friday Night Again" episode from the Barefoot Contessa.



This was absolutely delicious!!! My step-son's really enjoyed it. It was so simple and quick. Enjoy!!




















Ingredients

2 pounds ripe Bosc pears (4 pears)

2 pounds firm Macoun apples (6 apples)


1 teaspoon grated orange zest


1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice


2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice


1/2 cup granulated sugar


1/4 cup all-purpose flour


1 teaspoon ground cinnam
on

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
For the topping:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed


1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal


1/2 pound (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced









Directions:


Peel, core, and cut the pears and apples into large chunks. Place the fruit in a large bowl and add the zests, juices, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour into a 9 by 12 by 2-inch oval baking dish.

For the topping:
Combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed for 1 minute, until the mixture is in large crumbles. Sprinkle evenly over the fruit, covering the fruit completely.

Place the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the top is brown and the fruit is bubbly. Serve warm.
