DO YOU HAVE A THANKSGIVING TRADITION?Baking Ingredients

I make the same muffin recipe everything year. I tell myself I’ll bake these throughout the year but I never do…just on Thanksgiving Day.

My oldest son brought home the recipe from school when he was in kindergarten in 1995 and I have been making the muffins ever since. DO YOU HAVE A THANKSGIVING TRADITION?

Cranberry Muffins

Mix in a bowl:

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 ½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons grated orange peel

1 ½ teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon ginger

Cut in:

½ cup butter with knives or a pastry blender

Stir in:

¾ cup orange juice

1 Tablespoon vanilla

2 eggs

Fold in:

1 ½ cups chopped cranberries

1 ½ cups walnuts

Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Makes 18 regular size. 

Batter         

I usually make 12 regular and 24 minis (1/2 baking time).

YUM...Happy Thanksgiving!

The cranberry and orange combination is always one of my favorites.

We have a couple of traditions. Tom makes crepes on Thanksgiving morning and I cook dinner while the family erects our 12' Christmas tree. It's a day filled with work, food and then a good Christmas movie.
