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