Orange Cranberry Muffins with Orange Glaze

Pictured here with Peanut butter peanut butter chip cookies. These muffins do not have the glaze on them since I made them for my daughter and she does not like any types of icings. They are much prettier and definitely a much more unique taste with the orange glaze
