What is "crisp"?

In British and Irish cuisine, a crisp is a type of dessert that is made from baked fruit topped with a crumbly, buttery mixture of flour, sugar, and sometimes oats or nuts. The fruit used in crisps can vary depending on the season and availability, with popular choices including apples, berries, peaches, and rhubarb. The topping is typically made by combining flour, sugar, and butter until it forms a crumbly mixture, which is then sprinkled over the fruit and baked until golden brown and crispy. Once cooled, the crisp is often served with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Crisps have a warm, comforting flavor, with the sweetness of the fruit and the buttery richness of the topping creating a delicious and satisfying dessert.
