Cranberry Muffins with Butter Sauce

I thought I'd start by adding my recipe for November's recipe night. This one is perfect with the holidays coming up. And I can't take all the credit for it. My mom used to make something similar, but can't find the recipe. This one comes from one of my cousins.

Muffins
Cream ½ cup sugar with 1 ½ tablespoons butter
Add 1 cup sifted flour, 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder and ½ teaspoon salt
Add ½ cup evaporated canned milk
Mix in 1 cup raw cranberries. Mix with a spoon, not a mixer. Don’t over mix batter.

Fill greased muffins tins ½ full. Bake at 350° for 30 min. makes 8 muffins.

Butter sauce
Mix:
1 cup sugar
½ cup heavy cream
½ pound butter (2 sticks)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cook over very low heat for ½ hour, just before serving. Pour desired amount over muffins. Makes enough for a double/tripled muffin recipe.
