In a large bowl combine all filling ingredients. Toss to coat evenly and pour into a 2-quart baking dish. Tent with tin foil and bake 20-25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl make the topping by combining flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter with your fingers, rolling the mixture between your palms until it has the consistency of coarse meal. Stir in just enough boiling water to combine.
