Using a stand mixer or electric mixer, add butter and sugar to the bowl and cream; about 2 minutes at high speed. Add eggs, one at a time, combining well after each egg. Slowly add half of the flour mixture, and mix at a slow speed (or you will have a mess all over!), then add ½ of the yogurt mixture and mix until just combined. Add remaining flour mixture and combine; add remaining yogurt mixture and mix until just combined.
Remove bowl from stand mixer, add the cranberries, and fold gently to combine.
Pour batter into muffin tins, about 3/4 of the way full. Cook for 22-30 minutes, testing with a toothpick starting at 22 minutes. When it comes out clean, they are done (mine took exactly 30 mins).
Remove and set on a wire rack until cool.
