Walnut Raspberry Muffins

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

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup cream cheese, softened

    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.
