White Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Yesterday I went to look through our pantry for foody inspiration. I found about 4 cans of apple pie filling. My thoughts? SCORE - I can make some type of non-typical apple pie filling dessert. Reality? Every can was expired.

Every. Single. One.
Not just mildly expired though. Like, 10+ years expired each. Not sure how they managed to escape my mom's eye every time she's cleaned out the pantry throughout those last ten years!

Anyways. One pie filling that we DID have that was far from being expired was a can of cherry pie filling. So without further adieu, I present to you...
