• Make Ahead Freezer Struesal

    Create your own delicious make ahead streusel topping for fruit or berry crisp, cookies, ice cream, or various muffin and quick bread recipes. This lovely crunchy topping offers a blend of sweet brown sugar, crisp walnuts and the perfect combination of cinnamon and nutmeg.

    2 cups chopped walnuts, roasted (for 10 minutes at 350F)
    3 cups packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
    2-3 tablespoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon fresh nutmeg (optional)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    1 cup very cold, unsalted butter - cut into 16 chunks

    Combine walnuts, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and vanilla in a food processor and Pulse briefly- just enough to combine. Add butter chunks and pulse again, until the mixture becomes coarse & crumbly.

    Freeze in Ziploc or vacuum seal bags. To use add as liberally as desired to the top of muffin batter, quick bread batter, prepared apples, blueberries or peaches (to make fruit crisp) and bake as directed in the recipe you're using.

      This is a keeper. We love fruit crisps at our house and this will definitely add to the number of servings per week!
