These little muffins are very, very good. They were moist, and the texture was very pleasing. I used Granny Smith apples and dried cranberries. A nice combination of fruit for a perfect tart/sweet muffin. This recipe is definately a keeper. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I was looking for a recipe to use up my cranberries so I made this. These are more like biscuits than muffins, but they are good. I got 15 muffins out of the recipe. I also used granny smith apples because that is what I had on hand.
