Beat butter and sugar at medium until fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.  Stir in blueberry puree, sour cream.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until combined.   Spoon into lined muffin pan.   Drop fresh blueberries into the muffin cups.   Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until wood toothpick come out clean.

Blueberry cream center:

Add the puree to the prepared pudding, stir until mixed.  Put filling into a plastic baggie.  Cut on small piece of the baggie corner off.  Pipe into muffins.
