Pear and ginger go hand in hand, especially in these Ginger Pear Muffins!!

These babies are everything you want in a muffin: moist, fluffy, flavorful, warm and satisfying.

They have juicy bites of pears, bits of pecans and warm notes of ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.

They fall somewhere in between pumpkin bread and ginger bread; perfect fall treat!
