"The canned pie filling made this a snap to put together, but I am docking the recipe one star because the streusel topping made WAY too much and I had enough left for two more crisps! I omitted the spices in the streusel, used sliced almonds instead of chopped walnuts for a prettier topping, and baked the crisp in a 350 degree oven for about 27 mins. Vanilla ice cream on top made this a nice treat after dinner on a hot summer day, but now I have to figure out what to do with all that leftover topping!"
