In a good sized saucepan, melt butter at medium heat (or just below). Sautee apples and pears for 3 minutes, stirring often.

Add lemon juice and 2 tbsp water. Stir in, then add brown sugar and spices. Cook for about 5 minutes, until fruit is tender.

In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and remaining water. Stir into saucepan, bring to a boil, let bubble for 30 seconds while stirring constantly, then remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and let cool.

Serve over cake, waffles, ice cream (or any combination of those) - or put into a par-baked pie crust and finish off.
