I've never had pear muffins before, so I didn't know what to expect. They were pretty good! The batter didn't rise much in the muffin pan, so my muffins turned out a little short and I made 18 muffins instead of 12. This could be easily corrected by evenly distributing all of the batter amongst the twelve muffin tins... that is what I will do if I make these again. I loved the hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. Would be extra tasty with a dollop of sugar-free Cool Whip! Made for Photo Tag, 1/25/09 - NELady.
