1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature preferred
1/2 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons milk
1 and 1/2 cups peeled, chopped peaches

THE GLAZE

~this is what you need…

1 cup confectioners’ sugar
3 Tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

~what to do…

~ the crumb topping. Combine both sugars, the cinnamon, and melted butter. Stir in the flour. The crumb topping will be crumbly. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Spray a 6-count jumbo muffin pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.

~ the muffins: using mixer beat the butter on high speed until smooth and creamy. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat until creamed. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the eggs one at a time until well blended add sour cream, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed for 1-2 minutes, then turn to high speed until the mixture is combined and uniform in texture. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

In a large bowl, toss together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, all-spice, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and slowly mix. Add the milk, gently whisking until combined and little lumps remain. Fold in the peaches.

Spoon the muffin batter evenly between all 6 muffin tins. Fill the muffin tins until they are full. Press a handful of the crumb topping into the top of each.

Bake for 8 minutes at 425F degrees, lower the oven temperature to 350F degrees and bake for 20-25 more minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

~ the glaze: whisk all of the ingredients together and drizzle over warm muffins.

~it’s a great day at the Cottage…
