The first thing I did was prepare the cranberries.  I cut them into small chunks.

I also prepared the orange zest so it would be ready to add to the batter.

Now I measured the flour, sugar, meringue powder, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.

Then I added shortening and orange zest to the bowl.

Using an electric mixer I blended the ingredients together until no large lumps were visible.

In a smaller mixing bowl I used a whisk to blend together the apple sauce, eggs, orange juice and vanilla.

I continued whisking until the liquid ingredients were starting to foam.

Next I poured the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients in the large bowl.

Using low speed on the mixer I beat the ingredients until everything was moistened.

Then I added in the chopped cranberries. 

I folded the cranberries in with a rubber spatula.

Using a 1 tbsp scoop I dropped the batter into muffin pans that I had already sprayed with cooking spray.

I put them in the 350F oven to cook for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.

After removing them from the oven I let them cool in the pan for a few minutes.

Then I flipped them on their sides to allow the bottoms to cool.
