Fresh Peach Muffins with Almond Streusel

My boys love having muffins for breakfast and after-school snacks, and these fresh peach muffins are one of our new favorites. The muffins have a light, fluffy texture, and the streusel topping and sweet glaze make the irresistible. The muffins themselves aren’t super sweet, so the glaze really is a nice touch. But if you wanted to skip the glaze, you could add a bit more sugar to the muffins. It’s going to seem like you have a lot of streusel, but trust me, just go with it. Pack it on and press it lightly into the muffins. When the muffins are baked, you’ll be glad you used all of that delicious, crumbly topping!

    2. To make the streusel: in a medium bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter. Stir in the flour and almonds.
    3. To make the muffins: in a medium bowl cream the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, sour cream, vanilla and almond extracts and beat until well combined.
    4. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
    5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. Do not overmix. Stir in the milk.
    6. Toss the peaches with one tablespoon of flour, then gently fold into the batter.
