For the fruit mixture:
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 Gala apples, peeled and thinly sliced
2 Bartlett pears, peeled and thinly sliced
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of salt
For the crisp topping:
1 cup oats
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
Pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large cast iron skillet, melt the two tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the remaining fruit ingredients, stir together, and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
While the fruit is cooking, prepare the topping. In a small bowl stir together the topping ingredients until fully combined. Sprinkle it evenly over the fruit mixture.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the dish is bubbling. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. Top with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired, or eat as is.
