If you like the crumbs on top of crumb cake or apple crumb pie, crumb cookies are for you! They are made with just four ingredients and taste just like buttery crumbs!

Crumb Cookies
To make these cookies, you mix together melted butter, brown sugar, rolled oats, and flour until crumbs form.

Then, you press those crumbs into a greased mini muffin tin. Each depression will be filled slightly over halfway.

Bake until they they just begin to brown. Let them cool in the muffin tin and then invert carefully onto a plate to pop them all out.

Variations

Just like any crumb topping, there are lots of variations you can make with this recipe.

My favorite variation is to add in spices. Try mixing in a teaspoon of cinnamon, a half teaspoon of nutmeg, and a half teaspoon of ginger. Or, use any spice blend that you like!
