2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

pinch of ground cloves

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

¾ cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar

¾ cup (1½ sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Vanilla ice cream (for serving)

PreparationPear Filling

Preheat oven to 400°. Toss pears, cherries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt, and cloves in a large bowl. Transfer to a 13×9” baking dish.

Topping And Assembly

Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and ¾ cup sugar in a medium bowl. Rub in butter with your fingers until a coarse meal forms. Gradually mix in ⅓ cup hot water until a soft wet dough forms (a few lumps are okay). Drop clumps of dough over filling; sprinkle with remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar.

Bake until filling is bubbling and top is golden brown and cooked through, 40–45 minutes; let cool. Serve with ice cream.
