Oven 380º   12 well muffin pan 15″ by 11″ 1 cup size. Use 12 standard size baking cups. Spray with PAM® Baking  and place in wells.

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, mace,cloves, and salt in bowl and set aside. Mix sugar and cinnamon and set aside.

Beat melted butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in eggs. Add pumpkin, sour cream, and vanilla and mix until well blended.

Add flour mixture in thirds. Add  cranberries with the last third of flour and mix. Divide the dough between the 12 muffin cups.They will be very full if you use 1 1/2 cup cranberries. The children like alot of cranberries.  Dust tops with cinnamon sugar.

Bake about 25 minutes or until cake tester(or tooth pick) comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes and remove to wire rack.*

*I have used dried and fresh cranberries chopped in this recipe. The muffins made with fresh cranberries have a nice tart taste but their shelf life is only a couple days.
