Blackberry and thyme are an unexpected combination that work fantastically well in these plush, crumbly muffins. They're topped with streusel and a lemon, brown butter and thyme glaze, and filled with a lush blackberry compote. We like them toasted and slathered with sweet butter or served alongside a pretty jar of lemon curd. They also make great hostess gifts.
