These are easy to mix together in just a few minutes and they bake in 20 minutes. If you are looking for something seasonal to serve overnight guests during the holidays, try these out!
If you take a look through this site you will see cranberries appear in several different recipes. While fresh cranberries are tart, dried cranberries are sweeter like raisins. I do not have a preference. They are both delicious! Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread uses fresh cranberries while Cranberry Orange muffins are made with dried cranberries.
Check out some other recipes with cranberries. Cranberry Orange Sauce pairs fresh cranberries and orange. Dried cranberries are used in the Baked Brie with Honey and Dried Cranberries and Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies
