RAISIN BRAN CRANBERRY ORANGE MUFFINS

1 cup fresh cranberries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly grease 12 muffin cups; set aside.
In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, both sugars, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the cereal and milk together; let stand 3 minutes. Stir mixture well then stir in the egg, oil, and orange rind. Add the flour mixture and mix together just until moistened. Fold in cranberries.
Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling about 3/4s full.

1 cup whole kernel corn
2 eggs, unbeaten
1 cup milk
6 strips bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
2 tbsp bacon drippings
Drain corn well and combine with the muffin mix, eggs, milk, crumbled bacon and drippings; stir briskly until thoroughly blended. Cook on hot lightly greased griddle until cooked through, turning once. Serve dripping with butter and hot syrup, maple or your choice.

SOUR CREAM PECAN ROLLS
This recipe is one so old it seems like I have always made it.
1 cup sour cream
2 pkg yeast
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour
1/2 lb butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pecans, finely ground
Mix the sour cream and yeast in a large bowl until smooth; set aside.
Mix sugar, eggs, flour, butter, and vanilla together and add to the sour cream. Mash or roll out about 2 tablespoons of the mixture. Spread finely ground nuts over like a filling. Roll up. Should make a crescent shape when rolled up.
Sprinkle some sugar on waxed paper, enough to roll the rolls in. Roll in the sugar and place on cookie sheets seam side down. Repeat until all ingredients are used.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes, watching closely. Don't let get too brown!
