DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.; line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, blend together the sugar and the lemon peel. Set aside 1/2 cup.
  3. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup lemon-sugar with 1/4 cup flour. With a fork, cut in the 2 tablespoons of cold butter until the mixture is crumbly. Set aside.

  5. In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla.
  6. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour. Stir until just combined. Carefully fold in the blueberries.
