Tasty pear muffins
For breakfast this morning, I made a lovely batch of Cheesy Pear Muffins. The recipe was from an old Best Recipes magazine style muffin cookbook, just the kind that you pick up in the grocery store on the way through check out. I was really surprised to have the recipe turn out exceptionally well.
I followed the recipe exactly.
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice(could add a bit more)
1 cup shredded colby cheese(loosely packed)
2 medium pears chopped
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter melted.
Combine dry ingredients, including cheese. Add pear, mix lightly. Mix in wet ingredients and bake in a preheated, 425 degree oven for 20-25 min.
These little muffins really didn't even need butter or jam because the cheese makes them extremely moist. Honestly, I think there is plenty of fat in them already; I don't even want to guess at the nutrition content.
These have all the lovely flavors of fall.
