Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and position rack to the middle position. Line a standard size 6-well muffin tin with liners. Add the dry ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together to break up any lumps.
Beat Together: In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter together with a hand mixer until smooth. Add 1 egg, the vanilla, and stevia glycerite beating until incorporated.
Mix: Add a third of the dry ingredients to the cream cheese mixture and beat until incorporated, light, and fluffy. Add and egg, beating until incorporated, light and fluffy. Add half of the dry ingredients, beating again until incorporated, light and fluffy. Add the last egg, keeping the batter light and fluffy while mixing, then add the last of the dry ingredients, again beating until incorporated and the batter is light and fluffy. Add the leftover cranberry relish and mix gently. Add the heavy cream and mix until the batter is light and almost mousse-like. Get the batter in the pan quickly.
Fill & Bake: Evenly spoon the batter into the muffin liners. The batter is very thick. Once filled, lift the pan a few inches off of the counter and drop it back onto the counter. Do this 3 times. Put the muffins into the oven and turn the heat up to 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Then, turn the oven back down to 350 and bake 20-30 minutes or until the muffins are firm and springy to the touch but still sound moist inside or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Do not over bake. Cool completely and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Heat slightly in the microwave before enjoying.
