ISO Craisin recipes

I bought a big bag of Craisins, I will eat some as is but also want to use them in recipes. I did google for some but thought some folks here might have some good recipes.

Just use them anywhere you would use raisins. Cinnamon buns, granola, cookies, the choices are limitless.

in addition to the above mentioned - in an apple pie, hot oatmeal, oatmeal cookies, trail mix, on cereal, in plain or vanilla yogurt, ice cream topper instead of choco chips or reeses pieces et all, out of hand, cinnamon cranberry bread or in coleslaw. ohhh the possibilities!! have fun with them use to give anything a sweet natural kick.

Here's a delicious muffin recipe - you can use dried cranberries instead of cherries:
