"I found this recipe in a cookbook put out by the Maine Alzheimer's Association. My grandmother used to make muffins very similar to these and I was glad to find this."

    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.

    I didn't have cranberries so I made Currant Apple Muffins and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I used Splenda for the added sugar and skipped any sugar topping. Loved using the cider for the added flavor. My apple was a Cameo. They were beautifully baked in 20 mins. Yummm!

    These muffins were very good. I used dried cranberries, granny smith apples and splenda. Made for ZWT III. I will be making these again.
