This makes a nice dessert for that late summer into fall transition. The cinnamon and nutmeg complement both fruits, and a little orange zest gives this crisp a nice fresh flavor.

I totally agree that would be a great late summer early fall desert but I had peaches and and apples that needed to be used so I tried it. It isn't something I want to eat all the time but it is bursting with personality. I made a double batch and reduced the brown sugar by a quarter. My fruit was so ripe I should have cut it in half but a little ice cream fixed that. Thanks for the fun recipe, it's a keeper.

It's rare that I find a dessert DH and I both like. (I like sweet, he likes milder desserts). This worked for both of us. I came into it because while it's not quite cold here yet, fall is approaching. This really is a perfect transitional dessert. The orange (which I increased a tad) made this dish. I also froze the remainder and heated it at 400F for 20 minutes, stirred and used as a fantastic topping over vanilla ice cream!
