1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, (for topping)
1 tablespoon butter, or margarine (for topping)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour, (for topping) or 2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar, (for topping) or 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup Crisco® Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup milk
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups (2 3/4 inches in diameter)and insert a paper baking cup into each.

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

For the muffins, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, combine the eggs, sour cream, oil and milk and mix well. Add egg mixture, cherries and pecans to flour mixture; stir only until combined.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each one barely two-thirds full. Sprinkle the reserved crumb topping evenly over each one.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean and the tops are risen and golden brown.

Let the muffins cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Turn out and cool completely on wire racks or serve warm.
