Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium saucepan, mix together sugar and cornstarch. Stir in 1/2 cup each of reserved peach and apricot juices. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens, about 2 minutes. Stir in butter, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add peaches and apricots. Spoon fruit mixture into a 1-1/2-quart casserole dish. To prepare topping, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter and egg. Spoon topping over fruit mixture.
