DIRECTIONS: Preheat the oven to 375F. In a large bowl, combine the apples, pears, cranberries, 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, the brown sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and ginger with a heavy pinch of salt. Mix well to coat and combine. Lightly grease a 13x9 (2 quart) ceramic or glass baking dish.. Spread the fruit mixture in the bottom. In a food processor, combine the flour, baking soda, and remaining 1/3 cup of sugar. Pulse once or twice until combined. Add the cubed butter and pulse a few times until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the heavy cream and pulse until it forms a soft, sticky dough. Be careful not to overwork the dough, as it will become tough. Spoon the dough in heaping spoonfuls to cover the fruit in the baking dish. Gently brush the dough with a little extra heavy cream and sprinkling with the finishing sugar. Place the baking dish on a parchment or foil lined sheet tray and bake in the oven until golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool on a wire rack for 1 hour before serving.
