Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How do you make crumble crumbly?
This apple strawberry crumble topping is crumbly. This is achieved by making the topping into a crumbly dough. The dough will not be uniform or smooth. See photo above for reference.
Are apple crisp and apple crumble the same thing?
Apple crisp and apple crumble are very similar. Apple crisp usually uses oats in the topping, whereas apple crumble typically has butter.

Yes! If using frozen strawberries, thaw completely. Then, squeeze out excess water before using.
