Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Sift together flour and nutmeg.
In a medium sauce pan, melt butter.
Remove from heat, add sugar, whisk in flour-nutmeg mixture.
Stir in eggs one at a time; custard will thicken with each addition, then add vanilla.
At this point custard should be thick and smooth.
Cut pears into eigths, lengthwise.
Core the slices and arrange them in pie shell. (One large circle in the base with a smaller circle stacked on top)
Bake 45-50 minutes until the custard is firm and golden.
Allow to cool and serve with vanilla bean ice cream sprinkled with nutmeg.
