    This came out so well, so easily. Which is a rare combination for me! This will be my go-to top crust substitute from now on.

    Jenny Lee - a stick of butter is always a 1/2 cup. Happy Baking!

    The "1 1/2 sticks of butter" ingredient note is unclear--how big are the sticks supposed to be? Another unit of measurement would be great--thanks!

    Try refrigerating or freezing them before baking.

    When I make my crumbs, they don't stay round and firm (like store bought crumb cake) what can I do to give an acceptable presentation?
