Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c. unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 T. lemon zest
  • 2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 c. sweetened dried cranberries

Directions:

Heat oven to 350° F. Spray muffin pans with non-stick spray. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar at low speed until fluffy, about 4 min. Continuing at low speed, add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla, sour cream, lemon juice and zest. Then add the flour mixture and beat until just mixed. Fold in the cranberries with a spatula and scoop batter into muffin pans. Bake 25 – 30 minutes until the muffins are lightly browned.
