Day 326: Streusel Topping

Yield: 1 8x10 dish
Time (Start to Finish): 25 min

½ cup flour
4 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp butter, cold and cubed
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
pinch nutmeg
pinch salt
¼ cup walnuts, chopped

1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and nuts
2. Add the butter and crumble in with your hand so it looks like corn meal
3. Add the vanilla. You want it crumbly but not TOO dry
4. Sprinkle on top of pies, coffee cakes, or the dessert of your choice. Saves well in the fridge

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: I know, kind of a boring recipe, but just wait! I am making something KILLER tomorrow to put this on top of. Streusel is something that can easily be messed up, but once you get a good ratio, its perfect. You can add any nuts you like, or leave them out. You can also add coconut or bits of toffee if you like. I hope you enjoy this but just check out what I am going to put it on!
