You know you've been there. You buy a bunch of fruit (pears, in this instance) just because it's on sale; you have the best of intentions for it. You tell yourself the kids will eat it all for snacks or lunch sides; you may even have plans for baking.

Then a week or so later, you start to notice the fruit basket isn't emptying quite as fast as you'd hoped. In fact, the pears now need eaten or used before they completely rot away.

While my kids do eat loads of fresh fruit, it's never as much as I'd hoped or thought they might eat when I buy a bunch of stuff that's on sale. Life happens, we get busy, and the basket still sits there…full of fruit just waiting to be eaten or used up before it ruins.

The situation definitely calls for something homemade. And muffins or sweet breads are one of the easiest, most delicious things to make with fresh fruit.

These particular Caramel Pear Crumble Muffins are probably the most delicious muffins I've had in awhile. So tasty and my guys loved them too.

The muffins themselves have a hint of caramel and spice. The topping is a mixture of cinnamon, sugar, and butter; it gives a crunchy sweetness to the muffin.
