Crumble Topping

Crumble Topping
Crumble topping


  • 1 cup flour,
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, chilled and cut into large chunks,
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed.


In a large bowl, rub flour, butter, and brown sugar together until the texture looks like marbles. If you don’t rub enough, the crumble topping will turn out too powdery and fine. If you rub too much, it will end up like a big melted, sticky glob. If this happens, add some more flour, or put in the fridge until it cools well, then break it apart into manageable crumb size.

Distribute the crumble topping over the top of the pie. Don’t press down or your crumbs will look flat.

About Sabina Witres

I loved pies already as a kid. I watched my mom making them and usually I was the one who took the first bite. Now, I make pies myself. I like to experiment with ingredients, sizes and shapes. It's always fun!
