"This pie tasted okay, but I was frustrated by the lack of directions on making the crumb topping. It says to mix together butter, brown sugar, and flour with a fork or pastry mixer until you get a fine powder, but I tried it with regular butter and melted butter and it never gave me anything resembling a fine powder or crumb topping. It turned into what I would call cookie dough, so I ended up just plopping it on top of the pie and attempted to spread it around. Not very visually appealing. "
