With just three simple ingredients, these Air Fryer Peaches couldn't be easier. Once you realize that you can cook peaches in the air fryer, you just might not want them any other way. Find the simple steps below to cook ripe peaches in the air fryer. You're going to love this easy dessert.
When we tell people that we cook peaches in our air fryer, we get some strange looks. But to be honest, they're the ones missing out. If you've ever had peach cobbler and loved it you will love this recipe. The tender and juicy peaches wrapped and cooked in the crescent roll creates a melt-in-your-mouth flavor that you won't be able to deny.
I like to go to the farmer's market during the peach season because it's ripe and loaded with juicy peaches. Then you just have to take them home, clean them up, and you'll be snacking in just minutes.
If you're a fan of cooked fruit, be sure to check out my Smoked Peaches as well. There are so many ways to cook peaches.
Peach - Choose a fresh peach (or two) and get started.
Crescent Roll - Using premade dough makes this recipe fast and simple. For a lower carb gluten-free option try subbing in this dough which is made with almond flour.
Sugar - If you have a sweet peach, the sugar may not even be necessary - but I do normally add it.
How to make Air Fryer Peaches
You're going to love the simple instructions to make this peach recipe.
Step One: Place one peach quarter on each triangle of dough. Sprinkle with a teaspoon of sugar. Roll the dough around the peach and seal the edges.
Step Two: Add the wrapped peaches to the air fryer basket. I use a silicone liner but parchment paper works well too.
Step Three: Air fry the peaches at 400 for 7-8 minutes until the dough is golden brown.
Use brown sugar - Putting brown sugar on the peach instead of white sugar will add a boost of extra sweetness.
Turn it into a peach pie - Add a little bit of vanilla ice cream on top, and it tastes just like a pie.
Add a drizzle of honey - Once the peach pockets are cooked, drizzle some honey on top.
Switch out the fruit - You could also use apricots, plums, nectarines, or even pears.
Use coconut sugar - Change the sugar into coconut sugar.
Make a filling mixture - Grab a small bowl and spoon in some butter and cinnamon. Stir it around, and then add it to the crescent roll. This will create richness!
Add oats - You can add some quick oats to the inside of the crescent roll and it will taste like peach crisp!
What toppings would pair well with this dessert?
Adding whipped cream on top would take the flavor over the top. You could also use up graham cracker crumbs and have them on top of the whipped cream for a crunchy texture.
If you want to add some healthy fats, crush up some walnuts or nuts and sprinkle them on as well. You can literally add any topping that you want - or don't add any at all.
Can I use canned peaches for this perfect summer dessert?
Fresh peaches are the best. Just remove the pit, and you're good to go. Using canned peach slices is fine, but you will miss out on some of that natural sweetness.
If all you have is canned peaches, still do your best to make this recipe. The peaches will be sliced so wrap them up well so that they hold together.
How do I know a peach is ripe?
It's important for this dish to use ripe peaches so that the flavor is out of this world. Why create a treat that is lacking in taste?
To check the ripeness of a peach, you can give it the "sniff test" and see if it smells sweet, or you can give it a little squeeze and make sure that it has a little give.
Both are great ways to choose a ripe and ready peach every single time.
Can I use other types of premade dough?
Yes, you can. Just make sure that the dough that you're using isn't seasoned and that you can wrap up the peaches so that none of the goodness leaks out.
Another big tip is to put the filled crescent roll seam side down in the air fryer so that none of the juice or sugars leak out. It shouldn't be an issue, but it could happen - and you won't want to waste any of this goodness.
