DIRECTIONS

  • While cherries are still frozen, cut them into halves, then set aside to thaw and drain in a mesh colander over a bowl.
  • Cream butter and sugar using an electric mixer.
  • Add eggs, almond extract, and vanilla and beat well.
  • Crush 1/2 cup of the thawed cherries with a fork; add the mashed cherries to the batter.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Fold half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture using a spatula; do not overmix.
  • Add half of the cream or milk, mixing just enough to combine.
  • Add remaining flour, then remaining milk; again avoid overmixing.
  • Fold in the remaining cherry halves.
  • Fill 12 paper-lined muffin tins with batter.
  • If desired, you may sprinkle the muffins with some extra sugar.
  • Bake in a preheated 375 F oven until golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.
