 Winning Cranberry Muffins
Our town is the hub of all the area's large cranberry bogs, which are beautiful year-round. I've had this particular recipe for quite a while and have modified it over the years. These muffins are my husband's favorite, and my friends like it, too. It's a typical, hearty New England muffin!
