Dare we count the ways we love our muffin tops? Flaked with sugar crystals, drizzled with glaze, or sprinkled with crumb topping, the muffin top is (quite literally) a muffin’s crowning glory. Theresa takes everyone’s favorite part of the muffin and re-imagines it as a close cookie cousin. Not your standard chocolate-filled cookie, these are bursting with fresh blueberries coming into season, and have a light and airy quality. Topped with a brown sugar-butter crumb topping, Theresa goes even further, folding a baked portion of the same mixture into the batter itself, providing a little surprise crunch as you snack. The best part? Muffin top cookies totally count as muffins, so you can justify eating these for breakfast. Eaten plain, warmed, or dunked in coffee or tea, you’re sure to make someone’s morning by handing them a plate of these!
“ I love chocolate, I love baking, and I love sharing food with people I love. Using whole ingredients is important to me, but so is taste. If it’s delicious, I want to make it, eat it, and share it with you. ”
