Vanilla-Pear Muffins
45 mins (prep 20, cooking 25)
15 ingredients
6 servings
I got this recipe from the Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom cookbook. The book suggests using "firm, ripe pears with a buttery texture and sweet perfume, such as French Butter, Comice, Warren, or Bartletts", but I used Anjou and found these muffins to be delicious. Also the recipe calls for freshly grated nutmeg, but I used jarred ground nutmeg and didn't notice the difference. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
