Easy Strawberry Crumb Pie

It's as easy and as delicious as it sounds.  This pie was a HIT at our house!  Yum!
 Recipe from:  Keeping Up with the Joneses
1 refrigerated pie crust (I used a regular graham cracker crust...see the crumbles??)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
6 cups (2 pounds) strawberries, hulled and quartered
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp grated orange zest (or 1/8 tsp valencia orange peel, from the spice section) OMITTED

1.  Bake pie crust according to package directions. Allow to cool.

2.  Prepare the crumb topping: Combine the 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and the oatmeal in a small bowl and toss to combine. Add the melted butter and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

3.  Preheat oven to 350. In a mixing bowl combine the strawberries with the sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch and toss to combine. Spoon the strawberry filling into the prepared piecrust and spread the crumb topping evenly over the top of the filling. Bake in the middle of the oven for 45 minutes - 1 hour, or until filling is bubbly and crust and crumb topping are golden brown.
