Ingredients:

Oat topping

  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour (gluten-free variety, if needed)
  • ¼ cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats, divided (gluten-free variety, if needed)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Filling

  • 8 cups sliced stone fruit, berries, or pitted cherries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon, lime, or orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon, lime, or orange juice
  • Pinch of kosher salt

Preparation:

Pulse flour, brown sugar, salt, and ¾ cup oats in a food processor to blend. Pulse in butter until no dry spots remain. Transfer to a bowl and work in remaining ¼ cup oats with your fingers.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss fruit with sugar, cornstarch, zest, juice, and salt.

Transfer mixture to a 1½-qt. baking dish. Scatter oat topping over, place on a baking sheet, and bake until fruit juices are bubbling and topping is golden brown, 60–70 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool 1 hour. Serves 8.
