Cherry Muffins

Hi everyone!  It's been quite a while but I'm still around and here's a great muffin recipe.  I had bought quite a bit if cherries recently and didn't know what to do with them besides just snack on them all day.  I came across this recipe in Good Housekeeping and I think they are great.  These are perfect for a snack and much better than any store bought or packaged muffin.  Home baked goods to me are always the best!!

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), melted
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup chopped fresh cherries

Preheat over to 400 degrees F.  Grease (or use paper muffin liners) twelve 2 1/2" x 1 1/4" muffin pan cups.
In a large bowl, with wire whisk, stir flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  In a medium bowl, with fork, beat milk, melted butter, egg and almond extract until blended.  Add liquid mixture to flour mixture; stir just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy).  Add cherries and stir just until incorporated.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan cups.  Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.  Immediately remove  muffins from pan and cool on wire rack.  Makes 12.
