Blueberry Crumb Cups

A recipe for Blueberry Crumb Cups it’s A MUST to try. I don’t know if I talked about it before here but I get a tad over the moon for blueberries. It started when I was a child and fell immediately for the blueberries on the blueberry cheesecake. I could care less about the cheesecake – it was those blueberries I was after. To this day, if there is something blueberry on the menu, I must try it.

These are so amazing I will be making them again. They didn’t last long in my home. I also did an experiment – I used one mini-muffin pan and I did one regular muffin pan. While the regular muffin pan was a bit cumbersome, I really feel these have to be in a mini-muffin pan to get the perfect effect. Let’s just say not an ounce of blueberry crumb cup stuck to anything.

So thankful I purchased this pastry cutter eons ago

I went a bit crazy with the blueberries – less is not more in this case.

The end result – the perfect bite-size blueberry treat.
