OMG! These muffins have a wonderful flavor--the Yam-cranberry combo is fantastic. Add a spread of butter (real :) ) and BINGO...a breakfast or tea-time winner! Made as the Y in Le'ts P_A_R_T_Y event.

Not only is this a great-tasting muffin for any occasion, it would be especially good at the holidays. The muffins were so moist, I think from the yams, and the cranberries gave you a nice "pop" of tartness. I have these marked to make for upcoming Thanksgiving/Christmas dinners. They would also be a nice snack to make in a mini-muffin pan for those who like something a little sweet, but not "too" sweet such as cookies, candy, etc. Thanks for posting this Syd.
