Cheating Apple Streusel Pie

2 cans apple pie filling
Refrigerated pie crust
1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
1⁄4 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
1⁄2 teaspoon kosher or coarse salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Preheat to 375.  Empty cans into a bowl, and add a whole lot of cinnamon.  Mix it up.
Make the streusel topping: Combine the 1⁄3 cup of granulated sugar, the brown sugar, 1⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, the ginger, and salt in a food processor and give it a good whirl. Add the pieces of butter and pulse until the butter is incorporated and the mixture is crumbly. Do not overprocess; you don’t want a paste. Set the streusel topping aside.
Unroll pie crust and press into pan.  Pinch crust edge decoratively.  Add filling.  Top with streusel mix.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
