Raspberries are my favorite berry, so this recipe is tops with me. The walnuts give the muffins a nice crunch. You can dress them up by using foil liners instead of paper. —Elisa Lochridge, Beaverton, Oregon

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg whites, egg, buttermilk and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in raspberries and walnuts.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen raspberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"These are delicious! However, I goofed on one ingredient. As I put the pans in the oven I turned around and there sat the buttermilk! Thinking the muffins were ruined I found they were just fine afterall. My husband can't eat just one."

"Excellent recipe; muffins have a nice texture and are very tasty. Muffins could also be served as a cupcake - just drizzle a vanilla icing over them."

"I am from Tigrd, OR despite what it says online (the magazine is right). :-} I've directed some of my friends to see these online and do not want them to miss them because they think this is a different person."
