Place walnuts, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and vanilla in work bowl of food processor. Pulse briefly to combine. (Prepare in 2 batches, if necessary.)


Add butter chunks and process to make a coarse, crumbly mixture. Store in resealable plastic bags or airtight container in freezer.

I make this once or twice a year (doubling or quadrupling the recipe). That way I always have ready-to-use topping for muffins, sour cream coffee cakes or quick breads. This freezes almost indefinitely.
