Cinnamon Sugar Crumb Topping Default

Comments: 0


This is a great crumb topping, rich with the flavors of cinnamon and brown sugar. It also happens to be lower in fat than most toppings, but don’t tell anyone — they’d never know by the buttery taste.

Yield: Makes about 2 cups (500 mL) (enough for one 8-inch/20 cm crisp or crumble, or one 9-inch/23 cm pie)


  • ¾ cup (175 mL) all purpose flour
  • ½ cup (125 mL) packed light brown sugar
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) butter or margarine, melted


1. In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add butter, stirring until incorporated. Using your fingertips, finish working butter into flour mixture, squeezing until a nice crumbly mixture forms.

2. Sprinkle topping over prepared pie, crisp or crumble according to recipe.
