Recipe Ingredients for Glazed Pear Muffins

2 large pear, ripe, Bosc, with skin
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar,
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sour cream
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup skim milk
2 cup all-purpose flour,
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3 tsp water

Recipe Directions for Glazed Pear Muffins

  1. * Preheat oven to 375F and coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray or muffin liners.

  2. * Core and chop pears into tiny cubes; place in a large bowl. Add cinnamon, granulated sugar and lemon juice to pears; set aside.

  3. * In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, egg, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and milk; set aside.

  4. * In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

  5. * Make a well with a spoon in center of flour mixture and pour in sour cream mixture and fruit mixture, alternating in small batches; mix until barely blended. Do not over beat. (NOTE: Batter will be very thick.)

  6. * Drop batter by heaping tablespoons into muffin holes until about 2/3 to 3/4 full; bake until top is golden, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes in muffin tin; remove from tins to racks and cool completely. (Or leave slightly warm to dip into glaze for easier preparation.)

  7. * While muffins are cooling, make glaze: Mix powdered sugar, ginger, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla and warm water together in a small bowl (add another teaspoon of water if glaze is too thick) . Spread a thin layer of glaze over each muffin. Yields 1 muffin per serving.

  8. Notes

  9. * You can swap apples for the pears if desired.
