This fun and delicious dessert is best served slightly warmed and with a hot beverage alongside. It also couldn't be easier to make. Simply arrange the filling, comprised of Granny Smith apples, pears, raisins, and lemon zest and juice, in a casserole dish. It's spiced with brown sugar and allspice, then topped with a mixture of old-fashioned oats, ground almonds, all-purpose flour, and reduced-calorie margarine. All that's left to do is let it bake in the oven until the fruit is tender, which takes just half an hour, and your gorgeous-looking dessert is ready to go. You'll find yourself making it over and over again.
