This was on Barefoot Contessa and it is fabulous! She calls for Macoun apples, but I used Granny Smith and would do it again. The family enjoyed this very much. Perfect for the holiday seasons coming up.
- 2 lbs ripe bosc pears (4 pears)
- 2 lbs firm macoun apples (6 apples)
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 3⁄4 cup light brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1⁄2 lb cold unsalted butter, diced
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- 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 9x12x2-inch oval baking dish.
- For Topping:.
- Combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.** (see below). 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.
- ** I used my hands to mix the topping, that way the butter melted and the topping just held together better.
