Cranberries add a bright color and flavor to this tender sparkling-topped muffin.
Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper or foil baking cups into 12 muffin pan cups. Set aside.
Combine butter and cream cheese in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add sugar and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until just combined. Stir in cranberries.
Evenly divide batter among prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle coarse grain sugar over top of each muffin. Bake 21-26 minutes until tops begin to brown on edges and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool 2 minutes in pan; remove to cooling rack.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
*Substitute whole frozen cranberries.

Our college student daughter brought these muffins to the family Christmas. EVERYONE raved about them!! Moist, delicious, and kept well for the few days they were around. Because there is only one cup of flour in the recipe, the muffins are smaller than other recipes produce.
I made these muffins for Christmas morning, and they were a hit! They will become traditional holiday fare at our house! Thank you Land 'o Lakes for recipes that I trust!
