  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (55g) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon (1g) ground cinnamon (or spice of your choice)
  • 10 tablespoons (140g) cool, unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups (63g) slivered almonds (or chopped nuts)


  • In a large mixing bowl blend the unsalted butter, white and brown sugars, cinnamon, and salt together on low using an electric hand mixer.
    Blend for 3-4 minutes, or until the mixture looks like pebbles. 
  • Add all of the flour to the bowl and blend on low speed until the mixture resembles coarse sand*. At this point, the streusel is ready to use as is.
    *Alternatively, you can complete this step using your hands to pinch the flour into the fat and sugar.
  • Fold the slivered almonds into the flour mixture.
