Ingredients

  • 5 cup sliced peeled cooking apples, pears, peaches, or apricots, or frozen unsweetened peach slices

  • 2 - 4 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • ½ cup regular rolled oats

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ginger, or cinnamon

  • ¼ cup butter
