These are my favorite muffins because they can be made with blueberries instead of raspberries with the same delicious results. Friends often request the recipe.

"Fabulous lemon taste but not overpowering. Perfect for raspberries or blueberries. It's one of my top five muffin recipes."

"Love these muffins! Have made them many times since we have a huge red raspberry patch. Just enough lemon, not overpowering. I've used milk in place of the half and half when I didn't have any...still good."
