3/4 cup orange juice
1-1/2 cups dried cranberries

Soak dried cranberries in 1/2 cup Grand Marnier and 1/2 cup orange juice overnight. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, orange peel, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and baking soda. Cut in butter with pastry cutter or two knives. In a separate bowl, mix juice, vanilla, and slightly beaten eggs. Combine with dry mixture. Drain cranberries and add to mixture. Fold in nuts.

Fill well-greased muffin tins. Bake in 350 degree oven. Bake 2-1/2 inch muffins (18 muffins) for 25 minutes or 3-1/2 inch muffins (9 muffins) for 28 minutes. Serve with cranberry nut butter.

Notes: Garnish with twisted slice of orange and sprig of nutmeg geranium. The secret is in the marinating of the cranberries!
