Very interesting indeed, there is in fact a difference between a crumble and a crisp!
A crisp is a dessert made with a crisp topping that contains oats, nuts, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and flour sprinkled over the fruit. A crisp have a coarser texture compared to the crumble because of the nuts and oats used.
A crumble is made with flour, butter, sugar that is sprinkled over the fruit, basically the same ingredients as a pastry except for the liquid.
Either way both taste fantastic and you don’t have to stick to just apples to make this dessert.
I’ve used grapes with the apples, this created two kinds of sweetness in one pie, just lovely.
