Anna’s Streusel Recipe

Here’s the recipe mom always used to make streussel. And she was the best at making it! It was always sooo good.

These old recipes call for margarine. Today I always use butter. The recipe says to pat out to the size of a saucer, but I think it needs to be larger. Sometimes mom put colored nonpareils on the glaze when it was still wet for a little extra fun.

  1. Cream together the margarine, sugar, and vanilla. When fluffy, add 1 egg and beat well, then add the sour cream and mix well.
  2. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well with spoon or fork. Chill the dough for 30 minutes. Divide into 4 parts.
  3. Pat one out until the size of a saucer (flour your hands and the board). Spread with 1 tsp of strawberry jam. Sprinkle over the jam: 1 tsp cinnamon sugar, 1 tsp chopped nuts, and 1 tsp coconut.
  4. Roll up (like a jelly roll). Put fold side down on greased cookie sheet. Repeat with the other three pieces. Bake at 350* for 25 minutes. When cool, frost with glaze.
