The delicate pumpkin flavor of these muffins is enhanced with tart, juicy cranberries. I sometimes dust the tops with powdered sugar for added sweetness. —Sue Ross, Casa Grande, Arizona

Soft, moist and delicious. I followed the recipe except I used only 1 cup sugar, ½ cup fresh cranberries and ½ cup dried cranberries. It turned out just the way we liked it. Thanks for sharing.

We loved this recipe. I used dried cranberries and did not chop them. I doubled the recipe and added an additional cup of cranberries and used a 15 oz can of pumpkin. I made some into individual small loaves to give away and the rest into muffins. FYI: You'll need a large bowl if you double the recipe. Definitely a keeper!

These are delicious and the addition of the tart cranberries is perfect. Added bonus-Your house will smell fabulous while these are baking.

Easy to make, these muffins are very moist and tasty! I did as someone else suggested and just added the entire can of pumpkin and cut back just a little on the oil. Next time, however, I think I will add just a bit more of the pumpkin pie spice. I added some chopped walnuts, and instead of chopping the cranberries, I left them whole, which adds a nice burst of flavor when you bite into them. Even my husband, who isn't a big fan of pumpkin asked for more. This recipe is staying in my box.

Very good and easy too! I used fresh mashed pumpkin and the flavour is subtle, not overpowering. Light texture too!
