Lemon Blueberry Muffins

 I made these tasty muffins today . They hit the spot. I especially loved the lemon/berry flavor, they were a great addition to our Sunday breakfast and baked up nicely in the NEW KITCHEN.  
I am nearly unpacked and ready to start cooking .

Grandma's Blueberry Lemon Muffins

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
zest of one lemon
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening (or butter*)
1 cup frozen blueberries

Topping (this makes extra - you can try cutting it down if you want):
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tb lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar

Mix dry ingredients and set aside. Beat eggs, milk and shortening. Stir in blueberries. Add dry ingredients and stir gently to combine. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Combine butter and lemon juice. While the muffins are still warm, dip the tops in the butter and lemon juice, then dip in sugar. Makes 12 muffins.
*I substitute butter because I love the taste! It works great either way.
