About the Crisp
A crisp is very similar to a cobbler and easier than pie–literally. You make your fruit filling just like you would for a cobbler or a pie, spread it into the bottom of a round pan, and then top it with some form of streusel or crumble topping. You can top it with panko, oats, nuts, a flour and cinnamon sugar mixture, or anything you can think of.
The best part? You don’t need to make a pie crust or worry about it in any way. Crisps take less time, are easier to make, and are absolutely delicious.
