Cobblers, Crumbles, Crisps, and More
We make crumbles, cobblers, and crisps on repeat from May until September. Pick up a pint of plump berries or a basket of perfectly ripened peaches and let these easy recipes inspire you to create delicious fruit-filled desserts.In our strawberry version, the fruit is cooked to a jammy consistency and topped with a not-too-sweet, breakfast-style cream biscuit.
Strawberry and Apricot Crisp with Pine-Nut Crumble
In this crisp, the apricots hold their shape. The strawberries, in contrast, bake down into a thick, delicious sauce.
The jammy, intensely fruity base of this raspberry cobbler -- which packs in five whole cups of berries -- is balanced by a light, sweet biscuit topping.
The biscuit topping on this classic cherry cobbler is extra rich and tender thanks to the addition of heavy cream. Use fresh cherries in this recipe if you like, or save time by choosing frozen cherries.
For an even sweeter summer, take advantage of the season's perfectly ripe peaches in this easy crowd-pleaser of a dessert. The topping freezes well, so why not make a double batch and save half for another day?Get the Peach Crumble Recipe
Why choose between peach or blueberry cobbler when you can have both? You can make individual servings in four 8-ounce ramekins, or combine everything in a one-quart baking dish.
Three pints of fresh blueberries go into this juicy, lightly sweetened fruit crisp. Use oats, chopped nuts, or some of each to add texture and crunch to the sweet, buttery topping.
Warm Berries 'n' Dumplings
Don't turn on the oven for this all-American dessert (traditionally called a grunt). The berries and biscuitlike dumplings cook right on the stove.
Sour-Cherry Pistachio Crisp
Our crisp has more than a pound and a half of pitted sour cherries crowned with a brown-sugar-kissed oat-and-pistachio topping for lots of crunch.
A buckle is a decadent dessert hybrid: cakelike cobbler with a crumble topping.
These individual desserts include rhubarb, strawberries, and raspberries nestled under an oatless blend of butter, brown sugar, flour, salt, and grated orange zest.
In this version of the classic, spiced apricot wedges are arranged atop a toasted-almond batter. Baking puffs up the cake, so only bits of fruit peek through.
Fresh basil is a perfect complement to peaches in these fruit crumbles. Chopped almonds stand in for the more typical oats in the crumble topping.
Best Berry Cobbler
This cobbler is topped with simple biscuit dough that lets the berries shine. Use blackberries or raspberries; a dash of cinnamon rounds out the berries' flavor.
Orange juice and zest add a fresh twist to this blackberry crisp. If you like, use a combination of berries in this recipe.
Plum Oatmeal Crisp
Irresistible desserts don't need a mile-long ingredient list or an elaborate prep -- and this tempting crisp proves it.
Give a rustic dessert an elegant twist by baking peach cobblers in individual custard cups. The biscuit topping is especially moist and tender from the addition of buttermilk.
This irresistible, homestyle dessert is full of lush blueberries and apricots, complemented by tender biscuits. Serve it up in a cast-iron skillet for extra homespun flair.
