This has been my favorite cranberry recipe since it was first published under Taste of Home Rieman Publications when I worked there. I've never had the recipe fail and the result is well loved by all who've tasted it. It's usually made around the winter holidays however, today as we are a week into spring and I have a large bag of frozen cranberries, I am embarking to make in muffin tin. It makes 10 regular size muffins. Calories are 106 each. *Be sure to grease your tins. A provecho!

A family favorite, its a one bowl recipe. I always add 1 tsp of vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Easy to make after a long day at work. I found if you put it in the refrig overnight, the next day it has hints of a cheesecake.

I thought this was just okay. Yes, it was easy. It reminded me of a giant sugar cookie with cranberries. I baked it for an hour. My toothpick just didn't want to come out clean.

I have been making this dessert since it first appeared on the cover of Taste of Home in the DecJan issue 1996. Whenever I serve it it is a huge success and everyone asks for the recipe
