A Scoop Above
Even if you’re a baking newbie, you can make a cobbler or a crisp (also known as a crumble). For these laid-back treats, there’s no bottom crust or prebaking required— just slice peach, apples, or your other favorite fruit and add a straightforward topping of streusel for crisps or soft dough (biscuits, pastry, or spoon cake) for cobblers. The results are charmingly retro and simply delicious, the way a summer dessert should be.
