Cranberry Sauce Muffins
Rated 4.1 stars by 8 users
There are two kinds of people, those that have cranberry sauce only on Thanksgiving and those that look forward to filling their freezer full of cranberries to use all winter long. Guess which one I am? I LOVE cranberries. The red berries are one of my favorite flavor profiles. The tartness of cranberries makes them perfect for muffins or pancakes. This is my new favorite recipe. I will be baking these all winter long.
