'Tis the Season for Holiday Baking - love, crumb and pies

Yes, the crust on pies is delicious. But it's hard to argue that a pie topped with crumb isn't a wonderful thing. If you've never made it at home, worry not. As long as you don't mix the three easy ingredients just until it is crumbly. Any more, your chunks will be too big! 

What you need: 
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar 
1/4 cup butter, diced

Once your filling and bottom layer is ready to go, place a sheet of parchment paper over a baking sheet. You can put the crumb on top by scooping and heaving. You want it to look like you've added it too high. The filling (especially if it's apple) will shrink in the baking process. 

Happy Baking!
