1. Preheat the oven to 375F, and grease a 9×13 inch baking dish. Remove cookie dough from refrigerator to let it come to room temperature. Combine apples and pears in a large bowl. Toss with cinnamon, ground nutmeg, lemon juice, lemon zest, and flour. Pour fruit mixture into prepared baking dish.

2. Without over-working the dough too much, blend the cookie dough, oats, butter/oil, and walnuts by hand, until it resembles coarse crumbs. Spread the oatmeal crumble mixture over the fruit in the baking dish. Bake for 40-45 minutes uncovered until golden brown on top, and fruit is soft when pierced with a knife.
