Holidays are here!! I came home with a large bag of cranberries and apples a few weeks ago. While the apples were over in an instant, the cranberries just sat there for days! After searching high and low, I came upon this amazing recipe for cranberry apple muffins. They are literally the best things I've eaten in quite a while!! I modified the recipe a teeny bit and soon, I had the most perfect muffins ever!
