Blueberry Lemon Muffins

These almost have a biscuit texture while still being muffin-like. The lemon zest adds a very subtle flavor that doesn't over power the blueberries. I've made this with fresh and frozen berries and it always comes out good. Florida has blueberry patches where you can go and pick your own berries. And of course, fresh lemons can be bought at many roadside stands here so this is a perfect way to use both!
