How do I get a crispy topping on my peach crisp?

To ensure a crispy topping, make sure your butter is cold when you mix it with the dry ingredients. This creates little clumps that crisp up nicely in the oven. Also, baking the crisp until the topping is golden brown will help achieve that desired texture.

Can I add nuts to the topping for extra crunch?

Absolutely! Chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds make great additions to the topping, adding a delightful crunch and nutty flavor.
