Glazed Lemon Muffins

Lemon...mmmmm!!! Who doesn't like lemon?! It reminds me of spring...maybe its the citrus, maybe its that my son's birthday is in the spring and we always have lemon bars...I don't know, but when I start making "lemony" things around here I am thinking of those beautiful spring mornings when the birds are chirping outside my window and the grass is turning green (nope, its not happening at my house...but I like to make lemon flavored anything, anyway)
We loved these Glazed Lemon Muffins. They have just the right tartness to match the delicious sweet flavors. They are moist and good for anytime of day.

Glazed Lemon Muffins

3 c. flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
4 eggs
1 c. sour cream
2 cubes butter, melted
3 T. lemon peel, freshly grated
1 T lemon juice

Topping:
3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. cold butter, cubed

Glaze:
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. lemon juice

Muffins: Combine all dry ingredient, set aside. In a medium bowl combine eggs, sour cream, butter, lemon peel and juice. Mix well. Add dry ingredient and stir, just until combined. Fill greased muffin cups or liners 3/4 full. Set aside.

Topping: Combine flour and sugar; stir. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives. Mixture should look like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over muffin cups filled with batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes (mine actually took about 18 minutes). Cool slightly.

Glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl. Drizzle over the top of cooked muffins. Serve warm.
