Did you know there is technical difference between a baked ‘crumble’ and a ‘crisp’?  Apparently, in a traditional fruit ‘crisp’ the topping would contain oats, but a crumble would not.  Yeah, I had no idea either!  Personally, I don’t care what you call it as long as I get a big warm piece of it fresh out of the oven and WITH a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!  I swear, is there anything better?  I would take a fruit crisp or apple pie a la mode over ANY other dessert, any day of the week!

Now, I’ve been making apple pies and apples crisps for years.  They have been a family favorite for as long as I could remember.  As soon as the Fall season approaches, my family instantaneously requests some of my apple baking action.  I already knew that come Thanksgiving and Christmas, my regular double crusted Dutch apple pie would be making its regular appearance, but until then I thought I would hold them over with an apple crisp.  They are much easier to make than apple pie and equally delicious in my opinion!

However, to kick things off this year I wanted to step out of the box just a little bit and try something different.  Apples are great on their own, but I figured I would add in a different type of fruit for some extra flavor and color contrast.  Since both my husband and daughter LOVE plums, it seemed like a good option to pair with the apples we always use.  I already knew the deep, intense color of the plums would be an immediate attention grabber.

More on that filling in a minute though… can we take a moment and savor the perfection of this topping?  I could peel off that crisp topping and go to town!  SO amazing.  Crisp and crunchy on top, but all that fruity gooeyness is directly underneath.  Such a great combination of textures just in the topping.

Once I looked past that perfect topping though, as soon as I took it out of the oven all I could see was that intense color bubbling around the sides.  It even seeped through in a couple of spots… so gorgeous!

Time for that first scoop.  It was exactly as I had imagined.  Probably even better.

Of course no apple pie, crisp, crumble, or even cobbler could be complete without that scoop of vanilla ice cream right?  I usually let my ice cream melt for a couple of minutes.  That creaminess NEEDS to reach every bite!!!  There is NO other way in my opinion.

Nothing will ever take the place of my family’s favorite apple pie recipe, but when I’m pressed for time and can’t quite muster up the energy to bake a entire apple pie from scratch… this apple plum crisp will be a new go to alternative!!!
