When cranberries are in season you just have to make these delicious gluten-free glazed cranberry orange muffins made with European goat butter!
Wash whole cranberries in water and pick out any bad ones to discard. Roughly chop the cranberries on a cutting board. Then rinse again and strain to remove water.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: gluten-free all puopose flour, baking powder, guar gum, cinnamon, and salt. Add the European goat butter (or ghee, butter substitute, or coconut oil), sugar, eggs, Cointreau and water. Use a fork or mixer to combine all the ingredients so that they are well-combined.
Add the orange zest and fold in the cranberries. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the batter into each muffin cup.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Let cool on a cooling rack.
Add the confectioners sugar to a measuring glass. Use the orange you zested for freshly squeezed orange juice. Add to the powdered sugar and whisk until well-blended. When the muffins cool a bit remove the paper liners and place on a rack over parchment paper. Drizzle with the orange glaze.
