Raspberry Streusal Muffins

Mmmm Raspberries.  Here’s a nice way to start the day – Raspberry Streusal Muffins.  They do require a little more effort (really , a LITTLE more effort), but it’s worth it…. and don’t skip the glaze, it’s the perfect finishing touch.  These muffins are wonderful for brunch, lunch or when you just want something a little special for breakfast.  Like all muffins, I suggest mixing these by hand, rather than using a stand mixer.  In this case, you’ll insure your raspberries stay intact.
