Peach Muffins

This is a good one!! I can't remember where the recipe came from (my friend e-mailed it to me and I've since deleted that e-mail...sorry!) but I changed it a little and they turned out really yummy!! Great for using your canned peaches!

Peach Muffins

1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peach yogurt (I just used 1 container of the Yoplait Harvest Peach)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup peaches, well drained and chopped (or use some fresh peaches)
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (my addition)
slivered almonds (my addition)

Combine eggs, yogurt, butter, vanilla. Add the dry ingredients. Add the almond extract to the peaches then fold in to muffin mix. Fill sprayed muffin tin or muffin cups almost to the top. These muffins don't rise much. Sprinkle a few slivered almonds on the top of each muffin. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, cool in pan for 10 minutes.

This is the recipe how I made it with my changes. The original recipe didn't call for the almond extract or the slivered almonds, but instead called for 1 cup of chopped pecans that you fold into the mix with the peaches. I think that would be yummy as well, but I didn't have any pecans!:) And I think the best compliment to peaches is almonds...that's one of the reasons I LOVE my Mom's fresh peach pie so much!!

well you know how I feel about these muffins :) But I was thinking about trying them with strawberry yogurt and fresh strawberries. Or something like that.....

I like your raspberry cheesecake with raspberry idea! I'm going to have to try that out! I bet blueberry would be good too!
