“Moist and full of cranberries. Sweet with just enough tartness! Easy to make! These muffins are light and tasty and they freeze very well. I found the recipe in Christmas edition magazine from Dec 06 and just tried them last week. I have made them twice now! We all love them. I omit the pecans as my husband cannot eat nuts and we do not miss them!”
