Fruit Filling

In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add pears, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; cook, stirring often, until brown sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Stir in bananas. Divide mixture among 6 ramekins.


Preheat oven to 350°F. In bowl, combine flour and both sugars. Add butter; using your fingers or a fork, work mixture until it has consistency of coarse bread crumbs. Divide topping among ramekins.

Place ramekins on baking sheet and bake until topping is golden and fruit filling is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.
