This is great. I use it to make Cherry Crumb pie. Use a pre-made pie shell, a can of cherry pie filling, and this topping, then bake. Makes a great quick and easy dessert! Read More

Not sure if I did something wrong but I ended up with a large hard top crust that we ended up picking up as a whole and eating with our fingers. Tasted fine but didn't come out as a crumble. Read More

Delicious and easy. I put the mixture in the oven by itself for about 10 minutes and used it to top a no-bake pie. UPDATE: I made the apple pie filling from Grandma Ople's Apple Pie (from this site) and topped with this instead of pie crust. My family loved it! Read More

This is my standard dessert topping. For a twist on the theme, add some toasted finely chopped walnuts or pecans. Read More

This was such an easy crumb topping to make. I only needed half of it for my peach cobbler(and even that was a very generous topping) but the rest of it kept very well in the fridge. It can be topped on any fruit (with or without a pie crust) and baked. The result is PERFECT with vanilla ice cream! Read More

I halfed this recipe but in error put the full amount of butter in still good but not as crumbly as it would've been otherwise. A nice simple crumb topping which I put over blueberry muffins. Very good. Read More
