Apple and Pear Crisp

Prep: 20 minutes
Bake: 50 minutes
Yield: 9 servings

1 pound apples cut into 1-inch-thick slices
1 pound pears, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
4 tbsp dark brown sugar, unpacked
1 large egg(s)
6 tbsp dark brown sugar, unpacked
1/4 tsp table salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup(s) rolled oats
6 tbsp light butter, melted

Place apple and pear slices in a medium bowl. Toss with lemon juice and sugar; set aside.

To make topping, in another medium bowl, beat egg. Add sugar, salt and cinnamon; mix to combine. Add oats; mix well.

Spoon fruit into a glass baking dish and evenly sprinkle oat mixture on top; drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 375 until fruit starts to bubble and topping starts to brown, about 45 to 50 minutes. Allow crisp to cool completely before serving.

Tips and Tricks
Peeling the fruit is optional. Use any variety of apple you prefer.
