Raspberry Dream Muffins

I made these for a friends baby shower this weekend and they were delicious. 
The fresh raspberries were so good I had a hard time not eating them all before I added them to the muffin batter!


Raspberry Dream Muffins

1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
1 cup white chocolate chips
raw sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and place liners in muffin tin or spray with cooking spray.
Sprinkle raspberries with 1/4 cup of the sugar and set aside. 
In a large mixing bowl cream butter and the rest of the sugar.  Beat in eggs and both extracts.
In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. 
Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl, alternating with the milk and cream.  Stir in white chocolate chips.  Gently fold in the raspberries.  Fill cups 3/4 full.  Sprinkle each muffin with raw sugar.
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until tops spring back.

Note - I made these in my Pampered Chef Mini Muffin tin and they only took about 10-12 minutes to bake.
