I am not the biggest fan of dried fruit it has to be said. Yet at this time of year they seem to pop up in all sorts of recipes. You can't help bumping into them when you start doing your Christmas baking. Cranberries however I do like and these Cranberry muffins with a warming hint of cinnamon are just the thing to start off your festive baking.
