Difference Between Cobbler and Crisp

When it comes to full-course meals, the unwritten rule states that one should always leave room for dessert. While there are variations in desserts based on preferences, with some serving plain fruits, yogurt or ice cream, others go the extra mile into baking a combination of seasonal fruits, butter, flour, and sugar. The result is a crisp, buckle, crumble or cobbler. Although both are baked desserts, have fresh fruits, and are equally delicious, cobbler and crisp vary.   

 

What is Cobbler?

Originally from British colonizers in America, this is a pie consisting of baked fruit filling topped with pie dough or biscuits topping. As the mixture bakes, fruit bubbles produced in the baking process which makes the top cobbled, hence the term cobbler. It has a coarse texture and is savory. 

 

What is Crisp?

First published in the 1920s, this is baked fruits topped with ingredients including nuts, oats, flour, cereal, butter, and sugar. It has a crisp texture and is sweet as the toppings have brown sugar.
