Pear Muffins

It's time for Muffin Monday.......
I was excited to finally get some fruit from the trees that we planted a few years ago.  I got about 5 small pears, 3 of which I used to make these muffins.  If you are buying pears, 1 large pear should do it.

  1. SO jealous of your pear trees! We're hoping to put in 2 and then 2 or 3 apple varieties soon. The muffins look awesome!

    1. I have 2 that we put in a few years ago, along with 2 apple trees, one of which didn't make it and a plum tree. Finally got some pears from one of the trees this year. Maybe next year the apple and plum tree will join in the fun.

  2. Love the cinnamon and pear combo and I am also jealous of your pear trees!

    1. Thanks Stacy, I missed our orchard when we moved and am happy my new trees are finally producing.

  3. How wonderful! Home grown pears! I bet that in a few years you'll be swimming in pears.

    1. I know Karen, good thing it was a small harvest this year as there was no canning going on in my house this season. LOL
