Make the topping by combining all the dry ingredients first and mixing well. Add the butter by cutting it into the dry mixture with two knives, a pastry blender or a fork. Make sure not to smooth the butter, but to make it resemble coarse pebble size chunks.
Slice the fruit into sections that areAT LEAST 1 inch thick or approximately into 8Ήs. Remove any core, pit or otherwise undesirable insides. Leave the skin on. Put one layer of fruit on the ungreased 9 X 11 pan with two or three rows of slices. (Slices should face the same way in the rows, but rows should alternate direction.) Then do the same with a second row, putting the slices on top each other but in the opposite direction as those beneath it.
Sprinkle generous amounts of the topping evenly over the top. You should just barely be able to see through it in a few places. When all the topping is on, gently tap the sides of the pan a couple of times, so the topping naturally falls between the layers of fruit. Put into the oven soon after making so the butter does not soften too much.
Cook at 375° for 50 minutes or until fruit is al dente. Hints: Additional Options- sprinkle over the top last thing before cooking 12 cup chopped crystalized ginger OR 1 12 Tbsp crushed red peppers OR freshly chopped spicy peppers.
