Easy Apple and Pear Crisp with Oatmeal Streusel

Crisps are both the easiest and the most comforting fruit desserts, especially in fall and winter when it’s nice to cozy up to something warm and fragrant with cinnamon. In this variation on our Easy Apple Crisp with Oatmeal Streusel, we combine peeled apples and pears with a warming touch of cinnamon, then bake under a simple topping of oats, flour, butter, and brown sugar. Serve with cinnamon ice cream or crème fraîche whipped cream.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Lightly coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter.
  2. 2Combine the apples, pears, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl and toss to coat the fruit. Place the mixture in the prepared baking dish and set aside.
  3. 3Using the same bowl as for mixing the fruit, mix together the brown sugar, oats, flour, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt until evenly combined. With your fingertips, blend in the butter pieces until small clumps form and the butter is well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
  4. 4Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples and pears and bake until the streusel is crispy and the fruit is tender, about 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool on a rack for at least 30 minutes before serving.
