Pear and Apple Crisp

A great variation on the popular apple crisp...why make just apple when you can have pear, too?

3 lg ripe pears, peeled and sliced

3 lg tart apples, peeled and sliced
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 C raisins, optional
2 Tbsp turbinado sugar
2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Topping:

1/2 C quick cooking oats
1/2 C walnuts, finely chopped, optional
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 egg whites
2 Tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine pears, apples, lemon juice, raisins, turbinado sugar, whole wheat flour and cinnamon in a large bowl and gently stir. Pour fruit mixture into 7 by 11 inch baking pan and set aside. Make topping by combining the oats, walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, egg whites and oil in a medium bowl and mix well. Spread evenly over the fruit mixture. Bake for 40 minutes or until fruit bubbles and topping is golden brown.

Servings: 4-6
