in the first Family Cookbook.  Basic ingredients and
fresh strawberries are all that's needed for these
terrific muffins.
Wash & hull:
1 generous pint strawberries
Cut into pieces measuring approximately 1/4"
You should have 2 cups when you are done.

2 eggs
Beat well.
Set aside.

In a small bowl combine:
2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Add the flour mixture a little at a time to the butter
mixture, alternately adding:
1/4 c milk

Fill well-greased or lined muffin cups 3/4 full.

1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp chopped walnuts

Comments:
I've found that too many strawberries make odd shaped muffins, so don't add extra.  I
normally omit the nuts and they're still wonderful.   I've also sprinkled cinnamon sugar on
top.           -Stephanie
