Cinnamon Sugar Blueberry Muffins with Streusel Topping & Orange Cinnamon Butter

When the fun folks at General Mills invited several bloggers to create something using Land O’ Lakes new Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread I jumped at the chance. I was intrigued because who doesn’t love cinnamon sugar combined with butter. That combination reminds of a cafe that was at the end of the street when I lived in a little beachside town in Southern California. With their oatmeal they served this  grilled french bread that was topped with this thick cinnamon sugar mixture.

Land O Lakes ® Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread is great on it’s own but has endless cooking possibilities. The spread is good in savory dishes as well. I settled with Cinnamon Sugar Blueberry Muffins with Streusel Topping. A little orange zest added to a few tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar butter spread made a tasty and complimentary topping for the muffins. This recipe is bursting with the flavors of cinnamon sugar.
