Blueberry Muffin Tops w/ a Buttery Lemon Glaze

A yummy way to start your morning, or your afternoon, or evening. We ordered take out the other night and my little guy wanted nothing to do with it because I had just pulled these bits of awesomeness out of the oven! He kept asking for "one more cookie."



Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1 Betty Crocker Blueberry Muffin Mix
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet about 5 in apart. I only get 5 or 6 per sheet. The dough is thick. Bake for 8-9 minutes until slightly golden.
For the glaze:
1/2 stick(1/4 cup) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Zest of one lemon
1-2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Whip the butter. Then add your powdered sugar alittle at a time while constantly mixing. Add the lemon zest. Then slowly start adding the milk while still mixing to get to a slightly thinned consistancy. Add the lemon juice. The glaze should be thick enough to completely coat the back of a spoon, but be able to drizzle and spread evenly over muffin tops.

Hey Kara! I made these this morning. Caden LOVES blueberries and these were a hit, even my very picky Reiss ate them!! They were yummy!

You mean there's a way to bake bm's even more delicious?! (Gross Haley) I'm so frustrated that I'm out of town - you guys are killing me with all these must-try's. Can't wait to get some of these in my mouth...with one slight adjustment. Don't be mad, Betty, but my absolute favorite bm's are the Great Value brand - I won't buy anything else anymore.

Heheheh! Haley you make my day with your comments!
Damaris, thankyou so much! I actually just looked at your blog and I am very flattered considering the talent you have going on!
Libby, you are awesome for trying them! Thankyou! I'm glad Kaden approved!

Oh. My. Gosh. Sinfully good, I tell you. They should be renamed to "Sinfully Good Lemon Muffin Tops".
