Have you ever wondered what the difference was between a cobbler, a crisp and a crumble? It often seems that these terms are used to refer to any baked fruit dessert with a topping, but there are very distinct differences between the three. A cobbler is cooked fruit topped with biscuits or batter and baked, while a crisp is cooked fruit that is topped with a mixture of oats, flour butter and nuts before baking.

Finally, a crumble is a topping of butter, sugar, flour and spices that is piled onto fresh fruit before baking. Of the three, my favorite is the crumble. Crumbles are best served warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, and while they aren’t popular in the summertime, my favorite crumble is made with fresh cherries, which are only available from mid-May until the end of June.

I’m not sure if making a crumble in the summertime violates any culinary rule in the way that wearing white after Labor Day used to rock the fashion world, and even if it were a violation, I happily be a rule breaker. Cherry crumble is simply one of the best desserts and definitely should have a place on the list of Top Ten Desserts. Don’t believe me?

Give this simple (well, after you pit the cherries) recipe a try you’ll be a convert.
