With summer just around the corner comes the promise of fresh produce—especially my favorite fruit of all: strawberries! I like to wait until they’re at least 2/$5 in the store, but I can sometimes snag them for 3/$5 if it’s an especially good sale while they’re in season.

From this lovely strawberry tart to my freezer staple of strawberry jam, I’ll take my strawberries in just about anything.

Including these mouthwatering, pillow-soft strawberries and cream muffins!

Make these easy strawberry muffins whenever fresh strawberries are in season or to use up the remaining almost-too-far-gone strawberries in your fridge. Then freeze for an easy breakfast or snack—or arrange on a pretty plate for a sweet Mother’s Day brunch.

When you’re looking for comfort food, but don’t want anything too heavy, these easy strawberry muffins will quickly become your go-to recipe!

Oh, and from one cookie dough lover to another, this batter is incredibly addicting. 😉
