Berry Cheesecake Muffins

My little girl LOVES muffins!  A few weeks ago she asked me for a muffin for breakfast.  Unable to resist her cute face, I agreed and found this recipe in a Taste of Home Cookbook I have entitled “Grand Prize Winners.”…. Grand Prize of Taste of Home you say?… Okay!  I’ll do it!

They were a smash hit! Goodness these muffins were DELICIOUS!  Try them out and you be the judge if they are a Grand Prize Winner in your home!
