Here's a gift that lets family and friends enjoy the great taste of freshly baked muffins any day of the week. Both mixes featured here keep well, so it's okay if the recipients don't bake their muffins right away. Just tell them to store the packaged mix in the freezer in the meantime.
Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon into a large bowl (a great job for kids). Carefully pour the mixture into a clear cellophane bag big enough to hold about 5 cups. Next, top the mixture with the dried cranberries followed by the pecans to create a layered look. Seal the top of the bag with clear packing tape. Then tie on a ribbon and a card with the Cranberry Pecan Muffin recipe instructions printed inside.
