I don’t have time for a lot of things these days. All sorts of important to-do items get pushed to the back burner… paining my nails, making my bed, folding the laundry, budgeting, and menu planning to name a few.

And sure. When it comes to baking and cooking, I don’t always have the time it takes to make something completely from scratch. I mean, it’s great when I do. I definitely appreciate eating something that I know is great quality because I’ve made it in my own kitchen. But when that’s just not an option, I’m ok with using short cuts. Especially when I know they’re high quality shortcuts.

Like Lucky Leaf Premium Pie Filling.

Trust me, it’s not your ordinary canned food. It’s rich, and decadent, and most importantly– it’s not soggy and it doesn’t taste like metal (doesn’t that drive you nuts about most canned foods??). These pie fills are just what they claim to be: premium. My favorite is the strawberry filling, which I used in this Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream a couple of months ago.

But this Apple Pie Filling comes in a close second… maybe it’s even a tie! Because I’m not sure there are many desserts that beat a good apple crumble. And a toffee apple crumble? That’s even better. Toffee and fruit may be one of the most underrated flavors ever– it’s amazing.

This crumble is a quick, easy recipe sure to impress even your toughest dessert critic! Serve it warm over ice cream, and your family will be fighting for the last bite!

Apple Toffee Crumble

Ingredients

  • 1 - 22 oz can Lucky Leaf Premium Apple Pie Filling
  • 1/2 c. toffee bits (like Heath Bit O' Brickle-- not the chocolate covered kind)
  • 3/4 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 stick chilled, unsalted butter, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar + a little extra for sprinkling on top (2-3 pinches)

Instructions

  1. Grease a 9 inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Pour the apple pie filling into the pie dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon, and the brown sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter (or process all ingredients in a food processor). Mix in the toffee bits. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the pie filling.
  4. Sprinkle the extra brown sugar and the chopped pecans over top.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes until pie filling is bubble and the crumble is a golden color.
  6. Serve warm over ice cream. Serves 5-6.
