This was very good!! I followed the recipe except I made the following changes: I added 2TBSP. brown sugar, 1 TBSP flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of salt to the apple and pear mixture. I omitted the nuts from the topping, and I baked it in a 7x11" baking dish for 40 min. This is wonderful served warm with vanilla ice cream. Thanks for such a great recipe.
