Thoughts

I was looking for a new recipe to try. I decided that I don’t make enough cupcakes and muffins, so I decided to find a recipe for either one. I found this fantastic recipe on one of my favorite polish blogs.

I absolutely fell in love with these. They were a great treat to grab for lunch. Right after we ate all of them, I was asked to make another batch.

They are not sour (something I was worried about with the cranberries), but have the perfect amount of sweetness. They are moist and the combination of cream cheese and cranberries and ideal!

Enjoy πŸ™‚
