"It took me a couple of batches to perfect these muffins," writes Stephanie Moon, of Boise, Idaho, "but my family thinks this version is the best! And since they always gobble them up fast, I have to agree." TIP: Gently stir the raspberries into the batter, so they don't break apart.

"Grood recipe. I added 1tsp almond extract and 1/2 cup toasted & chopped almonds. I also added 1/4 cup of the almonds with the brown sugar for a crunchier strussel. My berries were whole, frozen so I added 1this flour along with the sugar. Really great muffins that withstand changes."

"This recipe is fabulous!

I used up my half n half and didnt quite have enough so I made up the difference with heavy whipping cream and then I didnt have raspberries so I finely chopped cranberries and WOW, they are so.... Good!"

"Recommend using paper cups. Berries are delicate and large ones especially, fracture the integrity of muffins when trying to release from pan. We loved them even with cracks, and will definately make again. The almond extract is a plus - it really ties the flavors together well."
