I was distracted and knead for 1:20 instead of 30 seconds  :(  Decided to use the whole lot to put in pie dish and sitting in the freezer now while making the filling.  Will report the result.

Well, it does look different without crumble, but tasty!  Wll make another one hopefully without distraction.

Made this yesterday for friends for lunch.  It is easy and everyone likes it.  Tried a different size dish, after reading a comment ,  a bit deeper.

Made this last night, and it was delicious!  My mix for the base wasn't crumbly ata all, it was quite sticky - but we used a home-grown egg that was quile large, so maybe it was a bit wet.  And the mixture didnt really crumble over the top - I just spinkled over dollops of dough, but they rose up while baking and looked really good.  Tasted even better!

Karen,  this happens to me sometimes.  I think maybe the butter warms up.  I do what you did and just drop lumps on top but it seems to work OK.  Glad you liked it .
