Category: Breads & Muffins
2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
dash of salt
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, cut into chunks, softened
1/2 C Pioneer® Sugar
1 C sour cream, room temperature
2 eggs, room temperature
1/2 C milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C dried tart cherries, chopped
1 C chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease muffin pan or line with paper holders; set aside.
In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt together; set aside.
In a food processor, cream together the cream cheese and Pioneer® Sugar; add the sour cream and mix. Add eggs in one at a time. Add milk and vanilla; mix. Turn off food processor. In the center of the flour make a well and add the liquid mixture and blend together until the dry ingredients are wet; the mixture will be lumpy. Fold in cherries and chocolate chips. Fill muffin tins two-thirds to three-quarters full. Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes or until the tops are slightly brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
