Introduction: Embracing the Essence of Summer

The air fryer peach crisp is a sublime dessert that captures the essence of summer. Peaches, with their juicy and fragrant nature, are the stars of this dish. We've adapted the classic peach crisp to be made in an air fryer, offering a faster, healthier, and equally delicious version of this beloved treat.


The Sweet History of Peach Crisp

Peach crisp, a staple in Southern cuisine, has its roots in the fruit cobblers of the British and early American settlers. It evolved into a simpler dish with a streusel topping, becoming a favorite across the United States. Our version respects this heritage while embracing modern culinary technology.

The Art of Making Air Fryer Peach Crisp


Prepping the Peaches

  • In a bowl, combine sliced peaches, lemon juice, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

  • Toss gently to coat the peaches evenly.


Crafting the Crisp Topping

  • In a separate bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt.

  • Cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.


Assembling the Crisp

  • Layer the peach mixture in an air fryer-safe baking dish.

  • Sprinkle the crisp topping over the peaches.


Air Frying to Golden Perfection

  • Preheat the air fryer to 350°F (175°C).

  • Air fry for 15-20 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the peaches are bubbly.


Serving Suggestions

  • Serve warm, ideally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.


Expert Tips for a Flawless Peach Crisp

  • Peach Selection: Choose ripe but firm peaches for the best texture.

  • Butter in Topping: Cold butter is essential for creating a crumbly, crisp topping.

  • Air Fryer Temperature: Monitor the air fryer, as temperatures can vary between models.

Pairings to Enhance Your Dessert Experience

  • Beverage Pairing: Complement your peach crisp with a glass of sweet white wine or a cup of aromatic tea.

  • Side Options: A side of fresh berries adds a refreshing touch to this sweet dish.


Nutritional Perspective: A Healthier Dessert Option

Using an air fryer for this peach crisp reduces the need for excess butter or oil, making it a healthier alternative to traditional baking methods.


Storing and Reheating for Continued Enjoyment

  • Storage: Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  • Reheating: Warm up in the air fryer at 300°F (150°C) for a few minutes to retain the crispness.
