Spiced Blueberry Muffins Recipe
Karry Hosford
These muffins are beautiful; eat them while they're warm, and they'll melt in your mouth. This recipe is adapted from the one that won Brittany Ayers her first blue ribbon when she was just eight years old. Fresh berries are best for these muffins, but you can also use frozen.
