Pear and Apple Crisp

Ingredients

 1/2 cup firmly packed golden brown sugar
 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

 2 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, sliced

 1 1/2 pounds Pears, peeled, cored, sliced

 1 cup allpurpose flour

1 cup sugar

 1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled Earth Balance sticks, cut into pieces (or butter, if you can eat dairy)

Preparation
Preheat oven to 450°F. Butter 13x9x2inch glass baking dish. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in
large bowl. Add apples, pears and lemon juice, and toss to coat. Transfer apple mixture to prepared dish.

Combine flour, 1 cup sugar and Earth Balance in a medium bowl. Using pastry blender or fingertips,
blend ingredients until coarse meal forms. Spread flour mixture evenly over pears and apple mixture.
