Apple crisps and cobblers are some of the easiest desserts to make, but that doesn't mean they lack any flavor. We like to think of them as the lower maintenance (but equally as delicious) cousins of an old-fashioned apple pie—they've inherited the warm and buttery genes, but not the fuss of making a pretty pie crust. Plus, many of these treats are made with fall pantry ingredients you already have, so a tantalizingly tasty apple treat can be whipped up and enjoyed on a whim. Whether you make a straightforward apple dessert or one that brings other fruits into the mix like blackberry and pear, there's a golden rule to most (if not all) warm, crumbly desserts: They are best served with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream. The next time you get a sweet tooth, these apple crisp and cobbler recipes are the easiest way to satisfy it.
