apple strudel-y something

i use pears or apples (i don't remove the apple skins!) you can add whole cranberries as well. the fruit gets tossed with some lemon or lime and a bit of honey or maple syrup. the topping consists of oats, a little bit of flour, brown sugar and butter chunks sprinkled all over and sort of packed in around the fruit. when you check on it while it's cooking, if you see any dry oats, just poke them down into the bubbling juice or add another little chunk of butter to that spot. it's done when the top is bubbly and delightfully browned. i usually serve with cream or yogurt because i find the ice cream is too sweet. it's very good warm.
