3 Tbsp. turbinado sugar
(I also used some topping from a coffee cake instead.

Place walnuts in a food processor; process until finely ground. Combine flour & next three ingredients in a medium bowl; stir well with whisk. Stir in walnuts. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Combine brown sugar & next four in ingredients in a small, add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in the diced pear. Spoon batter into 10 muffin cups coated with shortening; sprinkle batter with turbinado sugar. Bake at 400 for 20 min. or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in the center. Remove from pans immediately. Place on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature
