Best Leftover Cranberry Sauce Muffins

Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars
5

"These muffins are so soft and fluffy and so delicious with the roasted pecans on top. A great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving! The sugar amount needed depends on how sweet your cranberry sauce is. You can go up to 1/2 cup if the leftover cranberry sauce is on the tart side."

  3. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
