Lemon Blueberry Muffins

 These delicious muffins come to you from my sister, Gale. They are absolutely wonderful! Just a hint of lemon to give them that special mmmm factor. Another great thing is, it is easy! I am not a huge fan of blueberries and I love these things. Coming from someone who almost never eats or cooks with blueberries, I think speaks volumes. I think it is the addition of the lemon that makes these muffins so irresistible.So, why not give these a try, trust me, you will not be sorry you did!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
1 table spoon grated lemon peel
1 cup blueberries
cooking spray
1 tablespoon or more lemon juice
1/2 cup or more powdered sugar
