Ingredients:  
1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh preferred
1/4 cup sugar, for topping

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly grease a standard 12-cup muffin tin; or line the tin with papers, and grease the papers. In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl and beating well after each addition. Beat in the baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Add the flour alternately with the milk, beating gently just to combine. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl. Mash 1/2 cup of the blueberries. Add the mashed and whole berries to the batter, stirring just to combine and distribute. Scoop the batter by the heaping 1/4-cupful into the prepared muffin pan; a muffin scoop works well here. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon granulated sugar atop each muffin, if desired. Bake the muffins for about 30 minutes, until they're light golden brown on top, and a toothpick inserted into the middle of one of the center muffins comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the oven, loosen their edges from the pan, and after about 5 minutes transfer them to a rack to cool. Yield: 12 muffins.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These muffins are a clone of "The Famous Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins" which were indeed famous up until the mid-1990s, when Jordan's, one of Boston's two iconic department stores (Filene's being the other) was absorbed by Macy's and effectively disappeared.

If you use frozen berries, don't crush any of them. Rinse several times in cold water, then pat dry with paper towels before using; this will help prevent the muffins from baking up blue-green.
