Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 celsius).
Prepare the pears. Place in circular layers inside the French soup bowl. They will be compact and fill the entire bowl. Be generous.
Make the crumble topping in a food processor. Combine the flour, nutmeg, vanilla sugar, salt, almonds and then the butter until a rough coarse topping is created. Don't feel the need to make the topping fine or consistent in sizes. Having some larger pieces of almond is a good idea for extra crunch. :)
Place the crumble on top of the pears. Again, be generous. Pack it down on top of the pears and then add a soft sprinkle to the top (on top of the crumble that is already there).
Place the soup bowl on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Check. You don't want the crumble to burn. My oven cooked it to a beautiful dark brown in 38 minutes, but I began checking at 30 minutes. Each oven will be unique, so check as necessary until you reach the brown-ness you want.
Remove from the oven when done and prepare your hot cuppa. Let rest just for about 10 minutes, but not much longer as you want to enjoy it warm. Add a dollop of your favorite gelato or ice cream and enjoy!
