      I took these out of the oven just a few minutes ago. Already, my sleepy heads are rousing out of bed to see what the delicious smell is all about. They have a wonderful light texture. I made the cranberry butter last night. Makes a wonderful sweet and a little tangy spread. Thanks for posting this one.

      Oh WOW! I made these for Thanksgiving breakfast and I'll tell you what, they were so delicious. Soft, tender muffins with the slight tartness of cranberries. Spread with the sweet cranberry butter. A perfect start to our day of thanks.
