    Rinse and dry your bowl then combine all the ingredients for the crisp topping using a fork or clean hands until the mixture is combined and sticks together like cookie dough. 

    Alternatively, you can add the crisp topping ingredients to a food processor and pulse a few times until crumbly.

    Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the filling.
