Warm fruit cobblers and crisps are a perfect way to enjoy the bounty of seasonal fall produce.
Unlike a traditional pie, cobblers and crisps feature a crumbled topping (made of oats, sugar and spices), homemade shortcake biscuits, or a cake batter crust.
There’s no need to visit a country bakery or fall festival stand when you can easily make a scrumptious fruit cobbler or crisp at home, with fresh, wholesome ingredients from your kitchen pantry cabinet. If this sounds heavenly to you, here are a few fabulous recipes to try this fall!
Apple Cranberry Crisp
This delightfully simple recipe from Better Homes and Gardens lets cranberries and apples shine. Two fall favorites, these fresh fruits can be a tad on the tart side, but the crunchy oat, cinnamon and brown sugar topping adds just the right amount of sweetness. For the recipe from BHG, click here. While fresh fruit generally makes cobblers and crisps healthier than most desserts, this one is also on the lighter side at just 213 calories per serving!
Pears are harvested in the fall, and come in a variety of shapes and textures, but firmer varieties like Bosc, Anjou, or Asian pears are most suited for baking in a crisp. This easy Pear Crisp recipe from The Spruce Eats has a buttery cake batter crust, and you can mix and match whichever pears you prefer. Once baked, this cobbler can sit at room temperature on the kitchen island for two days or in the refrigerator for five days — but we bet it won’t be around that long!

Pineapple Ginger Crisp
Pineapples are in season year-round, but when paired with freshly grated ginger and a crumbled topping of old-fashioned oats, brown sugar, and nutmeg from your spice rack, you’ll have the perfect sweet and spicy cobbler to welcome fall. This recipe from Fine Cooking is easy to make and bakes up bubbly brown in just 20 minutes. Click herefor the instructions and ingredients you will need from your kitchen pantry cabinet.
With sweet cherries, vanilla and almond extract, and warm cinnamon, Bon Appétit’s Cherry Cobbler is sure to be a fall favorite.
