Cobblers are a deep-dish fruit dessert covered with a biscuit-like pastry topping made from a batter. When the dish is baked, the surface bears a likeness to a cobbled street.

Crumbles are another baked dessert, with the fruit filling topped by a textured top layer of flour and butter, nuts, bread crumbs, cookie crumbs or oatmeal. A crumble is often used in the United Kingdom, usually synonymous for what in the United States is called a crisp.
