  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold until just combined. Do not over mix.
  6. Cut BRACH’S® Cherry Sours in half by flattening each slightly (so they don’t roll) and cut with a sharp knife.

  8. Spoon the batter evenly into each section of the muffin pan.
  9. Finely mince the remaining walnuts and sprinkle on the tops of the batter.
