Ingredients

pear(s)

3 medium, peeled and sliced

unpacked brown sugar

2 tbsp(s), packed

all-purpose flour

2 tsp

fresh lemon juice

2 tsp

ground cinnamon

¼ tsp(s)

all-purpose flour

¼ cup(s)

whole-grain wheat flour

¼ cup(s)

reduced-calorie margarine

1 tbsp(s)

low-fat buttermilk

½ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine pears, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of flour, lemon juice and cinnamon in a large bowl; toss to coat and pour into prepared baking dish.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, combine the remaining flours, remaining brown sugar and baking powder; cut in margarine with a pastry blender, or 2 knives, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and toss with a fork until flour mixture is moist.
  4. Drop four heaping tablespoons of dough onto pear mixture. Bake until crust is lightly browned and fruit is bubbly, about 40 to 45 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, dust with powdered sugar and then cut into 6 pieces.
