  • 1/4 cup white sugar (for pie filling)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (for pie filling)

  4. For the crumble mixture, cut the butter into small pieces (keep the butter chilled but slightly soft for easy handling).
  5. Mix the white and brown sugar with the flour, and with your hands, softly add in the pieces of butter to mix it all together.
  6. Using either a spoon, or with your hands, crumble the mixture on top of the apple filling.
