A crisp is a type of American dessert, usually consisting of a type of fruit, baked with a crispy topping, hence the name.

The most familiar type of crisp is apple crisp, where apples are baked with this topping. However, many other kinds of fruit can be used, such as cherries, pears, peaches, blueberries, etc.

The dessert is similar to a crumble.
