When it comes to swoon-worthy fruit desserts, crisps, crumbles, and cobblers are top of the class every single time. These desserts often get lumped together, but they are distinctly different. Cobbler requires a biscuit-like dough with a sturdy structure and is more like a distant cousin to crisps and crumbles, while crisps and crumbles are like sisters.

We shared quite a few of these easy-to-make desserts this year, and these 10 were our favorites.

1. How To Make Any Fruit Crisp in 4 Easy Steps

Crisps are the quintessential dessert for using up just about any type of seasonal fresh fruit. Similar to crumbles, this sweet and buttery crisp topping always includes whole oats, while crumbles do not.

6. How To Make a Fruit Cobbler by Heart

The very best topping for a jammy, fruit-filled cobbler is a sweet cream biscuit that bakes up with crisp crust that breaks under the pressure of your fork, yielding to a tender, cake-like center.

10. The Ultimate Sauce for Crisps, Crumbles, and Cobblers

It's not a crisp, crumble, or cobbler, but we'd be remiss not to include this must-make buttery, vanilla-scented dessert sauce. It's a four-ingredient topping that's a real game-changer when it comes to summer fruit desserts.
