Yummy Cranberry and Cream Cheese Muffins


1 cup butter, softened
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar OR 1 cup Fructose
4 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and fructose (or sugar) until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in cranberries and walnuts (or pecans) Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Makes 2 dozen muffins +

My daughter Chelle and I used the recipe found on this site and slightly adapted it to our needs...

    I have already printed out your recipe...looks so delicious and can't wait to make some!

    I have a bag of Cranberries in the freezer and didn't know what I could make with them...and now all I need is the cream cheese...I've got that on my grocery list for next weeks shopping.

    I always buy a 6 pack of muffins each week for Jack to take to work and share with the guys. Looks like they're going to get some good Homemade Muffins next week!

    Thank You and Chelle for sharing.

    Hugs~ Joann
