A question about a recipe: Anne Dimock's Straight-Up Rhubarb Pie

I have a question about the recipe "Anne Dimock's Straight-Up Rhubarb Pie" from Genius Recipes. Can I make this but use a crumble for the top crust? I have extra pie dough from a different day, and wanted to use it for this!

Absolutely. I like using this recipe for rhubarb pies:
1.5 c. flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
pinch of salt
dash of cinnamon or ginger
12 tbsp butter (cold)

Mix everything together with a pastry knife, then crumble together with your hands. Adding slivered almonds, pecans, walnuts, or oats is also great with this crumb!

I don't know why you can't. I love crumble crusts on fruit pies.
