Apples and cranberries—perfect together! If your house will be filled with out-of-town guests for Thanksgiving, besides the feast on Thursday, you’re going to need to provide breakfast the next day. And even if there are plenty of leftovers, no one wants turkey and stuffing for breakfast. So why not whip up a batch of these Apple Cranberry Muffins? Set them out on the counter with a pot of coffee and let guests help themselves whenever they wake up Friday morning.

1/8 teas. allspice
1/8 teas. cloves
2 lg. eggs
6 oz. plain Greek yogurt
6 oz. sour cream
1 teas. vanilla extract
6 T. unsalted butter, melted
1-1/2 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
1 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In large bowl, combine dry ingredients.

In second bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, sour cream, vanilla, and butter.
