Apple crisp in the United States or Apple crumble as it is known in the United Kingdom is a dessert consisting of baked apples topped with a crispy crust. Ingredients usually include cooked apples, butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and often oats and brown sugar, ginger, and/or nutmeg. Many different kinds of fruit can substituted for apples, such as peaches, berries, pears, etc. One of the most common variants is 'apple rhubarb crisp/crumble', in which the rhubarb provides a tart contrast to the apples. It is an easy to make and tasty alternative to apple pie and apple cobbler.

Apple cobbler (also known as apple slump, apple grunt, and apple pandowdy) is an old recipe in which the baked apples are topped with a biscuit-like (drop scone-like) batter made with flour, milk, butter, and leavening agents. The topping is dropped onto the top of the apples in clumps, which have a 'cobbled' appearance, thus the name.
Apple crumble is a British variant of apple crisp that originated during World War II food rationing. The topping is also made of butter, flour, oats, etc, but it is smoother and resembles breadcrumbs. Care must be taken to balance the correct amount of crumble with the fruit, else the filling may seep through and spoil this crust. Crumble is traditionally served with custard or, nowadays ice cream.
