Strawberry Muffins

These were so delicious. The strawberry butter really makes these muffins. The original recipe called for toasted pecans, but I had a 3 year old helper in the kitchen and I got sidetracked and burned my pecans, so I just substituted in some oatmeal for the pecans in the streusel and I'm convinced that it was meant to be.
