6 cups sliced peeled pear (3 pounds)
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
Cooking spray
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour or all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chilled stick margarine, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup skim milk
2 teaspoons margarine, melted
1 tablespoon brown sugar


Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently to coat. Spoon pear mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Combine 1/2 cup all-purpose flour and next 4 ingredients (1/2 cup all-purpose flour through salt) in a medium bowl, and cut in 2 tablespoons chilled margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk, and toss with a fork until flour mixture is moist.

Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto pear mixture. Brush melted margarine over dough, and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
