I don't think I have ever made a muffin recipe that had cream cheese in the batter, but after making these Cranberry Cream Cheese Muffins I am going to look for more recipes that do. These muffins have a great texture and flavor that is unlike any other muffin I have ever made. These would be great at Christmas.

i will make these thanks
