Fruit Pie Crumb Topping

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 5 min.

Makes

1 cup (topping for 2 pies)

My mother always sprinkled on this wonderful crumb topping to dress up her two-crust fruit pies. The crumble topping not only looks pretty, it provides a crisp contrast to the soft fruit filling. I used it to top pies for my daughter's wedding reception.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • Dash ground cinnamon, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over fruit pies. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
Tip: Prepare and refrigerate up to 2 days before baking pies.
