I got the original recipe from taste of home but changed it to suit our tastes. A delicious Muffin! I think this is my favorite of all! I highly recommend using the nutmeg.

I used fresh pear in this recipe. The muffins have a great taste. But it's hard to taste the pear. Thanks Elaniemay :) Made for the Best of 2011 tag game

Yumm Yumm says it all!

Because the pears were not good in my store I chose to use canned ones instead. Looking forward to making this again with fresh ones.
