Preheat oven to 400°.

To prepare filling, combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Spoon filling into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

To prepare topping, combine matzo cake meal and next 5 ingredients (matzo cake meal through allspice) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add egg white; stir well with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal; sprinkle topping over filling.

Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until pears are soft and topping is golden.
