Cranberry Muffins

Just in case there's anyone in the world left who's not sick of cranberries, other than me, these are splendid little bite sized morsels. I needed something not-too-sweet for dessert last night, and these were ready in 15 minutes. I made 3 dozen, and this is what's left as of this morning. My husband keeps attacking, telling me that they are calling him. I always have a couple of bags of fresh cranberries in the freezer. Before using frozen fresh cranberries in this recipe, pour the berries into a one cup measure, and fill the cup with hot water. In 2 minutes they'll be puffed up and pretty, and ready to be chopped. I ran the cranberries through the food processor using the "slice" blade, and they worked well.


1-3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 cup whole cranberries, sliced
1/4 cup chopped walnuts.

Mix all ingredients except berries and nuts until moist; lumps will remain. Stir in sliced cranberries and chopped walnuts. Spoon into greased mini muffin pans; sprinkle about a teaspoon of sugar on top of each. Bake at 375 for 12 to 14 minutes, or until done. Makes about 3 dozen. Sweet enough to satifsy the sweet tooth, but not enough to induce "sugar coma".

Found myself browsing through blogs and seeing this had to say that I'm not sick of cranberries yet!! In fact I have been browsing (in a very laid back sort of way) for a recipe I could use for the bag I have left. This looks perfect!
