Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl combine the 1 cup flour, 1/2 brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 -1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp salt.
Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter or pinch the butter into the mixture with your fingers gently until small clumps are formed no larger than the size of a pea.
Put it in the freezer for 20 minutes to chill.
Spread chilled streusel onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. If there were larger chunks of butter and they melted, that's ok, you'll break it up anyways!
Once streusel has cooled, break up larger clumps and sprinkle over baked goods.
Either sprinkle this all over your coffee cakes or muffins before baking or bake this by itself.If baking by itself, be sure to watch the oven to ensure it doesn't burn. Oven times may vary. Mine was done after 12 minutes.Store into an airtight container for up to a week.
