Pie recipes using canned apple pie filling are rare, but my two boys, Ben and Andy, made this scrumptious apple pie with a sweet, crunchy topping. It's simple to assemble with a store-bought crust and canned pie filling, yet it tastes like it's made from scratch. —Cindy Glick, Bradford, New York

  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine pie filling, lemon juice and cinnamon; spoon into pastry shell. In a small bowl, combine the flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in nuts, oats and coconut; sprinkle over pie filling.
  2. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until topping is golden brown, covering edges loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack.
