  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups apples approximately 4 apples, sliced and halved
  • 2 cups pears approximately 2-3 pears, sliced and halved


  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsalted butter cold
  • ¾ cup oats
  • ½ cup pecans chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Lightly grease an 8-inch baking pan.
  • Mix sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and vanilla together in a small bowl. Add apples and pears to a large bowl and mix the filling ingredients in. Stir until all the fruit slices are coated with the filling. Spread into baking pan.
  • Make the topping by whisking flour, sugar, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Use a pastry cutter or 2 forks to cut the butter in until it is all crumbly. The butter should be pea-sized when done. Stir in the oats and pecans. Sprinkle over the filling.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the fruit is bubbling and the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before serving.
  • Cover leftovers and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Leftovers can be served warm or cold.


  • Slice the fruit into ¼ inch chunks.
  • Chop each slice of fruit in half to make them more manageable to eat.
  • Substitute all of one type of fruit for a variation.
  • Make a giant apple pear crisp by doubling this recipe and using a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or caramel.
