I know how busy and chaotic it can get during the holiday season!
So I thought I'd whip up an easy muffin recipe, because we all know, that this time of year we have many errands to run and a lot of shopping to do!
These muffins are also great to make Christmas Eve. You can have breakfast ready to go, while opening presents.
Not to mention they have cranberries as a main ingredient, which makes them festive as all get-out. Also, I love making my own cranberry sauce, so it's an ingredient I will have on hand anyway. Double score, if I do say so myself!
I love to give baked goods to my neighbors this time of year and these are perfect on an assorted goodie platter.
So...... get to baking!
