Apple, Peach and Pear Crisp

I made my first crisp today.  Apples, peaches and pears sucker punched by cinnamon and buried under oats, sugar, and butter.  There's really no way this could fail.  After 35 minutes in the oven, the fruits were soft to the fork, but the topping wasn't very brown or carmelized.  Lacking the integral crisp, it was more like an apple, peach and pear semi.  I cranked on the broiler and let the oats and sugar get nice and crunchy before pulling the sweet beauty out.  Topped with vanilla ice cream, it's like the BBQ peach I made in August, but amped up.

Apple, Peach and Pear Crisp

2 apples, peeled and diced
1 pear, peeled and diced
1 peach, peels and diced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup water

1 cup oats
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
½ cup melted butter

1) Peel your fruits, dice and sprinkle them with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and the water.
2) Combine the remaining dry ingredients in a separate bowl; add melted butter and mix until crumbly.  Lick your fingers!  It's amazing.
3) Pour your fruit into a 9X9 pan and sprinkle crumb mixture on top of the fruit.  Bake at 375°F for 30-40 minutes or until the fruit is tender.  Note: Inexplicably, I don't have a square pan so I used two 9X4 inch loaf pans.  This worked just fine!
