Best Ever Blueberry Muffins

So, these aren't healthy at all.
they're not grain-free, gluten-free, or anything else free. ;-)
but they're our family's favorite ;-) 
not too sweet, not too dense.  a light, fluffy, perfect blueberry muffin.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Prepare muffin pans (use muffin liners or spray with non-stick spray)

Combine these dry ingredients:
1 3/4 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
3/4 tsp salt

Cut 5 tablespoons of butter into the above dry ingredients until mixture resembles oats.

Combine these wet ingredients:
1 egg, beaten
1 cup (or less) milk
1/2 vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon grated lemon peel (optional - super yummy with out it).

Stir the milk/egg mixture into the dry ingredients. Do not overstir.  
Muffins will have holes and be too dense/hard if overstirred.

Add 1 cup blueberries and mix gently.
(i've used frozen and fresh and they're both fine!)

Bake 18-20 minutes until golden and the tops bounce back when lightly touched.
 Remove muffins from pan to cool.
