Homemade is easy with this cheater recipe from Krusteaz. From-scratch purists might disapprove, but this dessert tastes better than store bought and is perfect for holiday get-togethers. The only time consuming task is slicing and peeling the apples. Enjoy!
1 package Krusteaz Cinnamon Crumb Cake & Muffin Mix (1 pouch each cake mix and cinnamon topping mix)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Vanilla ice cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place full pouch cake mix, butter and flour in medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, mix on low speed until dough forms.

Bake 40-45 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
