Cream Cheese Topping

  1. In a separate bowl, cream together cream cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla, until smooth.
  2. Portion about 1Tbsp of cream cheese mixture onto the top of each unbaked muffin (~1Tbsp per muffin). Use a butter knife to gently cut in/swirl the cream cheese mixture. The mixture should not be swirled all the way through the muffin, but just through the muffin-top.

Streusel topping

  1. In another medium sized bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter using pastry knife.
  2. Evenly sprinkle streusel over each muffin.
  3. Bake on 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center (and not through blueberry) comes out mostly clean.
