I actually made several jars of this apple pie filling a few months ago, so I used it and some of my frozen cranberries to make this delicious crisp. I based this recipe on my Pear Peach Crisp, basically just using the topping batter and water instead of can juices.

This was absolutely scrumptious! I drizzled the sauce from the apple pie filling over the ice cream, so good!
