Raspberry & Lemon Curd Muffins

Raspberry & Lemon Curd Muffins
Original Recipe by Miss Jolie Ann

Hi everyone!

It's the beginning of raspberry season in Portland. My raspberry patch still has a ways to go until it's ripe enough for eating. I picked up 2 baskets of raspberries from the east bank farmer's market on Thursday-one red, one yellow. The red raspberries were not quite ripe, still pretty bitter. Unfortunate. The yellow's were sweet and delicious. Today I'm enjoying a relaxing "pajama's" day staying in relaxing, reading. So I decided to whip up this muffin recipe to use the yummy raspberries. I created this recipe with all ingredients I happened to have on hand this afternoon. Including the shining star--homemade lemon curd given to me for Christmas by my friend Jemae. I think the sweet & tart lemon curd nicely compliments the raspberries. Enjoy!

In Health,
