CRANBERRY ORANGE MUFFINS


Fresh cranberries are available at Thanksgiving and Christmas but
I like to keep them in my freezer to use in this muffin which I
enjoy year round.  The tartness of cranberries and flavor of orange
combine for a great taste sensation.


If the cranberries are large, it is a good idea to cut them in half.


The wet and dry ingredients are folded together just until moistened.


An attractive muffin that is moist and so yummy!
