Coffee Cake Cookies

Raise your hand if you love coffee cake! I know it may seem a little old-fashioned, something grandma would serve, but I don’t care, I can’t get enough of it. It’s one of my favorite sweet goodies. But I will agree that coffee cake or muffins can be a little boring, so when one of my favorite baking mix brands, Krusteaz asked me to “Seize the What If” and create a recipe that inspires other home chefs to bake outside the box, I jumped at the opportunity,

So I took my favorite mix Krusteaz makes, the crumb cake, and made this cute little coffee cake cookies.

I made these in the same way you would make cake mix cookies. I just decreased the amount of liquid until the batter was much thicker. Then I scooped the batter on the cookie sheet and baked them.

To get the cookies to hold the best part of a coffee cake, the crumb, I used the back of my cookie scoop to make a well in the cookie to hold all that delicious crumb. Then I piled on the sweet, cinnamon goodness.
