Crumb topping for pies/cobblers? Anyone have a good one?

I like pies/cobblers with crumb toppings. I always sort of muddle my way through making them, but would love a fail-proof recipe.

I'd be particularly interested in recipes that call for brown sugar. Then again, brown sugar could probably be used for white sugar in a recipe, right?

Thanks!

Hi runninduo, I've tasted cheesecake topped with streusel and it was heavenly (it was crumbly, crunchy and nutty all at once). You might want to try this as your topping. I don't have a recipe for this though...

Hi mudbug, do you simply mix up all the ingredients? Would you need to somehow cook the AP flour first? (Sorry if this is a stupid question.) :oops:

Just mix 'em all up uncooked and sprinkle on top of whatever goodie you are making. Having the butter cold is importantl; also, rolled oats are good in these types of streusel. Use brown sugar if you prefer.

Chopstix, you wouldn't be using enough flour to have it taste bad, plus the melting butter and sugar are gonna help "cook" it. Ain't chemistry da bomb?
