This versatile Brown Sugar Streusel Topping can be used in so many ways and adds an extra tasty flavor and texture to so many delicious desserts! I absolutely love topping just about any muffin variety with this brown sugar and cinnamon streusel for a sweet, crunchy layer.
In a small to medium mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Add the butter in a tablespoon size pat or cubed, then cut into the dry mixture. Use a pastry cutter, food processor, or simply a pair of butter knives to cut the butter using a criss-cross motion. Continue until the butter pieces are small, pea-sized crumbles.
*Make your streusel, then chill in the refrigerator until ready to use to help keep the streusel consistency.**If you will be baking something for a long period of time, the streusel will caramelize. Add toward the last 10-15 minutes of baking for better results.
