Cranberry Muffins

Posted by moderndaygourmet on September 27, 2009

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup cranberries

Cream butter and sugar; add eggs, vanilla and sour cream and mix until combined. Add next 5 ingredients. Fold in cranberries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.

The original recipe I found said it made 12 muffins but I got about 18 out of this. You can use fresh or frozen cranberries, or dried ones if you reconstitute them by placing them in boiling water for 5-10 minutes.
