Preheat the oven 180°C.

Mix the flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar, and rub the butter into the dry ingredients. Add the nuts and cover the pear mixture in the ramekins with the crumble layer. Then place the ramekins on a baking tray, cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

Mix the yoghurt and honey, and serve with the warm crumbles.
