Fresh Strawberry Muffins

These Strawberry Muffins are soul-satisfying, and are a perfect breakfast or snack.  I imagine they would also be good as the base for strawberry shortcake! 

Fresh Strawberry Muffins
(makes 1 dozen)

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
cinnamon sugar

-Put paper liners in muffin cups, and preheat the oven to 400.
-Cream butter and sugar.  Add the egg and beat well.
-In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
-Add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter mixture.  Mix well.
-Stir in vanilla and strawberries.
-Scoop/spoon batter into muffin cups - they'll be full.  Sprinkle with plenty of cinnamon sugar.
-Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes, until golden.
