A perfect Fall muffin .. loaded with apples and cranberries ...
topped with a pecan streusel.
Muffins are so easy to make .... no need to get out a mixer ...
gather the ingredients and stir together with a big spoon.
Apples are diced into fairly small pieces.
My daughter does not like to bite into a whole tart cranberry so I
chose to cut them in half. That is optional.
These muffins cups are very full but that is not to say that you
cannot divide the batter to make more than 12.
They rose and browned beautifully as they baked.
The crumb is very tender and moist ... I will make these again.
