- Spread it out evenly and then just go around and pack it down in there with your hands.
- Spoon lemon pie filling onto crust.
- Then take the 1/2 cup of crust mixture that you set aside earlier and sprinkle all over lemon pie filling.

- The crumble on top will just start to turn a very light golden brown.
- Slice up and serve.
This crust slices up very nicely. I like to eat it while it is still a little warm but it was really good nice and cold from being stored in the refrigerator. This should be covered and stored in the fridge. I found if I just covered it and left it out that the crust would soften up a bit so put in the refrigerator if not eating it all the same day it’s made.
