I love Dunkin' Donuts' cranberry orange muffins and had hoped these would be similar. I wasn't disappointed! Great muffins.

Made for June, 2010 Orange Tag Game. Very nice (and easy to make) muffin. Not sweet at all, and with just enough hint of tart to give it a nice "zing." Mine turned out a tad dry, but I believe I baked them too long. I hit 23 mins. and forgot to check after 20. Twenty minutes in my oven would have been enough; but...there's always next time to correct MY error! Thanks for a great cranberry/orange recipe.
