Blueberry Muffins

Almost all blueberry muffins are tasty, but these are extra delicious.  They have a few things that set them apart from your average blueberry muffin.  First, the recipe uses butter instead of oil like most muffins, and I always think butter is better.  Then they are very slightly lemon flavored.  You know, just a touch, not enough to be a lemon muffin, but enough to compliment the blueberries perfectly.  And, lastly, they are sprinkled with sugar just before baking, giving them nice crunchy, sweet, tops.  Hope you enjoy!
