    teaspoons vanilla, divided

  • 1/3

  • 2

  • 1

  • 1/2

Directions

Preheat oven to 375° F. and coat a 12 hole muffin tin with cooking spray, or use muffin liners. Core and chop pears into tiny cubes; place in a large bowl. Add cinnamon, granulated sugar and lemon juice to pears, gently stir and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream and egg, 1 tablespoon vanilla and milk, set aside. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well with a spoon in center of flour mixture and pour in sour cream mixture and fruit mixture, alternating in small batches, mix until barely blended. Do not over beat. (Note--batter will be very thick) Drop batter into prepared muffin holes until about 2/3 to 3/4 full; bake until tops are golden, about 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes in muffin pan, remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. (Or leave slightly warm to dip into glaze for easier preparation.) While muffins are cooling, make glaze. Mix together powdered sugar, ginger, remaining 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and warm water in a small bowl. Add another teaspoon of water if glaze is too thick. Spread a thin layer of glaze over each muffin. Yields one muffin per serving.
