Coffee Cake Crumble Cookies


If Coffee Cake and Cookies had a baby, the baby would be delicious. And the baby’s name would be Coffee Cake Crumble Cookies. 

 Ok, but really. If I’m being honest, these Coffee Cake Crumble Cookies are pretty life changing. The only thing holding me back from making these Coffee Cake Crumble Cookies again is the fact that I ate almost the entire batch the first and second time I ate them. 

Poor Mr. Cooks and Drinks didn’t get to try any. I immediately delivered a bunch to neighbors to get these delicious fluffy cookies out of my house swiftly- much to my familys chagrin. 

So what makes these Coffee Cake Crumble Cookies the best? 

A few things, thanks for asking!

  1. Cinnamon and vanilla. A lot of beautiful cinnamon and vanilla.
  2. The streusel topping. Because. The best part of coffee cake is the topping. It’s true.
  3. The larger cookie size; now you can definitely make these in a standard cookie size but the cooking time will decrease slightly and they won’t be as cake like.

So enough of my going on and on about why you should make these mouthwatering, life changing Coffee Cake Crumble Cookies and how about you just try them for yourself!
