In a large bowl add your flour and cold butter slices. Using a blender (or a pastry blender–just make sure the mixture isn’t too smooth), mix the butter into the flour until it resembles crumbles. Add the sugars, oats and spices and mix until combined.


Spray your cast iron with a non stick baking spray. (Obviously I’m not going to tell you to buy a cast iron pan if you don’t have one, but they are super nice to have on hand. If you don’t have a cast iron for this, use what you have and adjust your cooking time.) Pour the fruit mixture into your pan.
