Peach season is coming to a close here in New Hampshire, but I still managed to score 4 large, sweet, juicy peaches. I knew I wanted to make muffins, and a search through the Taste of Home database turned up this recipe. It called for pecans, but I substituted blueberries because both my guys are allergic to tree nuts and I have a ton of blueberries. I liked the use of the sour cream, though I'm betting they would be great with greek yogurt or peach flavored yogurt. I sprinkled the tops with raw sugar before baking, I like the crunch and sparkle it gives them.
The recipe makes 12. 5 disappeared very quickly last night. My son asked me to send one for his school snack today. I'm enjoying one with coffee this morning. This is one of those recipes that as soon as I mix the batter, I know I should have doubled it! Thanks to Mrs. Michelson for sharing her recipe :)
