  1. Fork together the flour, sugar, and cinnamon/pumpkin spice
  2. Add butter, it will look griddy
  3. You should now have your cut mixed berries in one bowl, your streusel in a second bowl, your sweet filling in a third bowl and your batter in a large fourth bowl.
  4. In your muffin liners, layer as follows: One scoop of batter, a few berries, scoop of filling, scoop of streusel, another scoop of batter, a few more berries and topped with more streusel.
  5. I lined my bowls up to make it easier to remember the order
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown

Recipe Notes

* make sure not to put too many berries or too much sweet filling in each layer or your muffin will fall apart, and plenty of batter on the bottom and top layers to hold it all together.
