Ingredients

  • For the Muffins:

  • Cooking spray

  • 1

    cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped

  • 1/2

    cup rum or apple juice

  • 2 1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 3/4

    cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    stick unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 1/2

    cups eggnog

  • 2

    large eggs, at room temperature

  • 1

    tablespoon vanilla extract

  • For the Topping:

  • 1 1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1/2

    teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • 1 1/2

    sticks unsalted butter, melted

  • 3/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/4

    cups packed light brown sugar

Directions

Prepare the muffins: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Mist a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray. Warm the cranberries and rum in a small saucepan over medium heat, then remove from the heat and let steep 5 minutes. Drain. Whisk the flour, baking powder, brown sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk the butter, eggnog, eggs and vanilla in another bowl. Gently fold into the flour mixture. (The batter will be lumpy; do not overmix.) Fold in the cranberries. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Make the topping: Mix the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter, salt and brown sugar in a bowl with your fingertips until it looks like wet sand. Sprinkle generously over the batter. Bake until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly in the pan, then carefully remove to a rack.
