Yummy Cranberry-Apple Recipe

                                   8 Tbs butter (I used unsweetened, organic applesauce)
2 eggs (fresh from Philbrick's Dude Ranch are the BEST)
3/4 C sugar (I used honey)
rind of 1 orange, grated
1 C orange juice (I didn't have any so I squeezed the juice out of the grated orange and added water to meet the measurement)
2 C flour (I used whole wheat)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ginger
3-4 peeled and chopped apples
1 C cranberries, cut in half
Melt and cool butter.  Whisk eggs and add to butter.
Add sugar (honey), orange juice, and rind. 
Add flour, b powder, soda, spices, apples and cranberries.
Fill greases muffin pans.
Bake 350 degrees for 20-25 min.
Makes 2 dozen.

These freeze super well!!  I put 2 in a plastic baggie and threw them in the freezer.  Now Mark can grab two every morning for his snack at school.  If I don't put them in the freezer, other little men eat them all! :)
I think I'll go have one with some sleepy time tea.
