Peaches and Cream Muffins

Since I don’t like peaches, I haven’t experimented with them a lot. But, my husband has been raving for YEARS about the peach muffins he used to get at Perkins restaurant. So, I decided since a friend had given us some peaches, I’d do my best to make him rave about MY peach muffins! When I’d baked them, I told him they’d have to remind him of heaven or I’d simply have to try again…til I got it right! When he tried them I asked “Well, do you think I need to try again?” and he said, “Nope.” So, BINGO! I have a winner!!!! Now, I’ll share it with you…

I sifted the dry ingredients together.

Finally they're out of the oven. My hubby says they're delicious...I hate peaches so I'll take his word for it! Hahaha! Sometime soon, I'll have to make these babies with strawberries, which I LOVE! (Although I think they'd be good with just about any fruit.)
