Fresh Strawberry Muffins

Last Sunday, I visited the Chattanooga Market and picked up a gallon of strawberries. They are delicious! I needed a recipe for Sweet Treat Tuesday, and I needed to use my strawberries, so strawberry muffins it is! I googled "strawberry muffins" and this recipe came up. It sounded good, and anything sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar mixture is a winner in my book. These were easy to make and super delicious.

from A Recipe A Day

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, softened (I used unsalted.)
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 TSP baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
3 TSP sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and mix well.

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter mixture, ending with milk. Add vanilla. Gently stir in strawberries.

Spoon batter into greased or paper lined muffin pans. I used the Pam spray with flour in it.

Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over muffins.

Bake at 400ยบ for 18-22 minutes.

Makes one dozen muffins.
