Dutch Apple Pie or Apple Struesel Pie or Apple Crumble Pie....whatever name you go by, I'm looking for a crumble topping for my pie, not a crust. Since I was a kid I always topped my apple pies the way I learn - no recipe, no measurements just a little of brown sugar, flour and sometimes oats mixed with some butter and sprinkled on top of the sliced apples. Just wondering what is your favourite recipe for the apple crumbly topping??

We are celebrating Thanksgiving a week early as some family members are traveling next weekend. I have to make an apple and a pumpkin pie for tomorrow. I have the pumpkin ready to go and the apples have just been picked, literally! We have trees in our yard. I would like to try a different crumble topping this year. What have you got?

Thanks Nanny. I just copied that. It is similar to what I've always made but never really sure of the amounts as we've never measured, just tossed it!

I found a recipe a while back under a Rhubarb Crunch one where all the comments were that it was all about the topping. I made it and it was amazing (now I use that same topping for things like rhubarb and apple crunch). It's simple though...just 1 cup light brown sugar, 1 cup quick oats, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamonn, and 1 1/2 cups flour. Stir it well then cut in butter (1 cup)...yes, I know it sounds like a lot of butter (and there were comments about more or less butter) but I tried more and less and I say to go with 1 cup butter.

Whip up a batch of crumb topping and store in the freezer for a ready-to-use dessert topper.

Usually this is called 'dutch apple pie'. This one is simliar to one I make and it seems the ratios for the toppings are the same on several similar recipes (flour/cold butter/sugar). I never use margarine. Whiz the topping mixture in a food processor and then sprinkle over pie before baking. ...
