National Blueberry Month

July is "National Blueberry Month", and Saturday marked "National Blueberry Muffin Day", which was lucky, because I recently aquired an entire pound of blueberries! Here's my favorite blueberry muffin receipe. Yum.

Easy Blueberry Muffins

1 stick of butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups blueberries
1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease 12 muffin cups. Cream the butter and sugar then add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Mix the dry ingredients and milk & vanilla, alternately with creamed mixture. Fold in the blueberries. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mix before baking. Bake for 30 minutes. If they haven't browned a little on top, shut off oven, and let sit in oven for a few minutes until nicely browned. Cool for 10 minutes.
