    sophieollie's Note:

    These are super easy to make and always a big hit. I make them as muffins, but have also made them as squares--just bake in a 9-inch square pan for about 10 minutes longer. My mom always requests them for her birthday--we just split them open and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. When fresh cranberries are on sale around the holidays I buy several bags and freeze them so I always have them on hand.

      These are extremely easy to make and VERY tasty, however... they are not your typical muffins. Sophieollie notes that she sometimes makes them as bars... and I suspect they would be much better as bars. They're quite different in consistency than other muffins (note that there's no leavening agent-- although, given that, they aren't nearly as dense as you might expect), and no matter how much you spray or grease your muffin tins, these will NOT release the way typical muffins do. I will definitely make this recipe again-- like I said, it's delicious!-- but I will do so as bars. Unless I can get my hands on one of those silicone muffins "tins," which might just do the trick...
