What is a “Crisp”
A “Crisp” is a baked fruit dessert with crispy toppings, hence the name. The topping is normally made of crumble flour, butter and sugar, sometimes with rolled oats and some toasted or shaved nuts. It is often interchangeable with a “crumble” which is also the same concept as having a crumble crispy toppings and underneath a choice of fresh or frozen fruits. “Crisp” is more like American style dessert, while a “Crumble” is of British origin but the concept of how they are made also almost the same. Crumble can be sweet and savory, although the sweet version is the most popular and common one.
I had been waiting for this moment, I had been wanting to making this Mango and Peach Crisp for as long as I can remember. Actually, I had been dying to make crisp, crumbles and cobblers all year-long, not just this recipe. Almost anything were I can use and bake fresh fruits. I could have done it anyone of the year, but I really want to use fresh fruits instead of canned fruits and so I waited, and waited for Summer to come, and I’m just glad that Summer finally arrived. I have so many summer treats stored for us, so stay with me and let’s make out Summer filled with delicious mouth-watering treats.
So this Mango and Peach Crisp, it’s so good!Some people call it crumble, some call it crisp but either way you call it, you will always end up with this heavenly Summer treat. It’s sweet and tangy, its soft warm fresh, and it got a nice “crisp” and crunch on top, then there goes a generous scoop of ice cream on top. It’s definitely a Summer MUST try dessert. I hope you’ll give it a try, and I promise you will not regret it.
