    lilmichelles's Note:

    Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry. This is a great seasonal recipe. The pears and honey balance nicely together and give this cupcake a nice natural sweetness. The almonds add a bit of nuttiness and crunch. This is a light, fluffy and tender cupcake that leaves a happy feeling in your mouth.

      Excellent. Just the right amount of sweetness and the icing was the topping on the cupcake. Really good.

      I love these cupcakes. It really hits the spot on a fall day. The flavors are warm and sweet. I was given this cupcake as a surprise and I did not even know that there were pears in it. I will definately make these for my kids. Thank you!
