Remove the stems from the figs; quarter the figs. Place figs in a small bowl; add hot water to cover. Let stand 20 minutes; drain and set aside.
Place the pear wedges in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup sugar, melted butter, 1 tbsp flour, salt, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon; toss well.
Spoon the pear mixture into a buttered 8 inch square baking dish; arrange the figs on top of the pear mixture. Set aside.
Combine 1 cup flour, brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a medium bowl; stir well. Cut in 1/3 cup butter with a pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly; sprinkle over the figs and pears.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
