Dried Cherry MuffinsStreusel-topped, tender muffins filled with dried, sweet-tart cherries and pecans.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter or margarine

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 cup dried tart cherries
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Cooking Directions:

  1. For the topping, combine flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; mix well. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.
