President's Day Apple Pear Crisp

I don't think it's because it was President's Day. Maybe it was the cold and rain. Nate was home. Oh, it could be because we are reading Farmer Boy. Anyway, we made a really great Apple Crisp today. The recipe came via Costco book, via Mr. Reynolds. His tasted better - no real surprise there.

Here is the recipe:

2 pounds Bosc Pears (4 pears)
2 pounds Granny Smith Apples (6 apples)
1 tspn grated orange peel
1 tspn grated lemon peel
2 tspns orange juice
2 tblspn lemon juice
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c flour
1 tspn cinnamon
1/2 tspn nutmeg

Pre-heat oven to 350

Peel, core and cut pears and apples into large chunks. Place fruit in large bowl and add the grated lemon and orange peel and orange juice, sugar, flour, cinn and nutmeg. Pour into 9x12 baking dish.

Topping
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 tspn salt
1 c. old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 pound cold unsalted butter, diced
To prepare topping, combine all ingrediants in the bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment (I dont have this so I just winged it with reg mixer and spoon) Mix until large crumbles. Top the fruit in baking dish.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes.

Oh my goodness, girl. This look SO yummy!! I love the mixture of the apples and the pears.
Ok, coupon thing....are you getting the coupons to print from the coupons.com one or do they not print at all?
You shouldn't have to go through a bunch of questions or ads fro the one that says scroll coupons....when I print it right from my site, I can just hit "quick print" and it prints right away or scroll coupons when they all show up and then I just chooose all of the ones I want and they print off. They will reload at the beginning of the month with tons of great ones. Also, once you hit print, you can then back space and hit print again and get two of the same ones. I have set up a free email with Gmail for all these freebies and coupons. Then I don't have to worry about any spam or extra emails comign to my personal site. That has been great. Sometimes you get tons of questions for the other things but then I get a lot of free samples so Ithink it's worth it. But with the coupons.com one you should not get the ads with the quick print. :)
