Although I pretty much followed the recipe right on down, I did use unsalted butter, fat-free vanilla yogurt, & left the pear unpeeled! We managed to devour 4 muffins as soon as they were cool enough, & the rest of them lasted not more than about 26 hours! Very, very tasty, & I'd be happy to make these again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement recipe tag]
