This Air Fryer Peach Cobbler is dangerously tasty and easy. Each ramekin is loaded with fresh peaches tossed in brown sugar and a buttery “biscuit” like topping. And of course, peach cobbler would not be complete without whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Since I just cook for my husband and myself, I love smaller or individually portioned air fryer desserts, like this air fryer peach cobbler (similar to an air fryer peach crisp), Air Fryer Blackberry Cobbler, or my favorite Strawberry Oreo Milkshake.
Be sure to serve this peach cobbler with my Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream without Eggs.
If you love desserts with summer fruits, try this super creamy Blueberry Creme Brulee or Mini No Bake Cheesecakes! For fall, I recommend my Cinnamon Apple Bread Pudding.

Ingredient Notes & Substitutions
- Sliced Peaches: Swap fresh peaches for frozen peaches. Do not thaw. You can also use canned peaches. Omit the brown sugar because these are usually sweetened.
- Salted Butter: Swap for unsalted butter and a pinch of salt. Melt butter and let cool while you prepare the other ingredients.
- Whipped Cream: To make fresh whipped cream, whip (using an electric mixer) 1 cup heavy cream, 1 heaping Tablespoon of sugar, and a splash of vanilla until stiff peaks form.

How to Make
- Make the peach base.
- Make the biscuit topping.
- Layer peaches with biscuit on top.
- Air fry and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: In a medium bowl, stir together peaches, brown sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, and cinnamon, until well combined.
Step 2: Lightly grease 4 7 ounce oven safe ramekins with spray oil or butter and place in the air fryer basket.
Step 3: Divide the peach slices between the ramekins.
Step 4: Using a fork, stir together the flour, sugar, and baking powder in a separate bowl.
There should still be space above the peaches for the topping.
Step 5 Pour butter over flour mixture stirring simultaneously. Use the fork to incorporate the butter completely or until large crumbs have formed and the flour is completely combined.
Step 6: Divide the biscuit topping between the ramekins.
Step 7: Air fry at 320 degrees for 22-24 minutes, checking halfway through. If the topping is getting too brown, cover loosely with foil. Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream.
Pea sized crumbs should form while stirring in the butter.
The tops should be golden brown and bubbling when the air fryer peach cobbler comes out.
Make Ahead & Storage
- Air fryer peach cobbler is best served hot and fresh. If you have leftovers, see the instructions below.
- Refrigerator: Store leftover peach cobbler covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
- Reheating: Reheat in the microwave in 15 second increments until warmed through.
- Use fresh peaches. Fresh peaches have the best flavor.
- Check on the cobbler. Be sure to check on the cobbler while it cooks to ensure the topping is not browning too much. Cover loosely with foil if needed.
- Don’t skip the salt. Whether you use salted butter or add a pinch of salt, the salt helps balance all of the sweetness and adds so much flavor.
- Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream. The hot peach cobbler with the cold cream on top is unbeatable.
- This recipe was tested with a COSORI Smart Air Fryer. Every air fryer cooks differently, so I always recommend checking on the food a couple of times through the air frying process. Adjust the time and temperature as needed.
- Fruit: This recipe would be delicious with fresh or frozen mixed berries, like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.
- One large cobbler: You can use a larger oven safe baking dish (like a small pie pan) that will fit in your air fryer basket instead of making individual air fryer peach cobblers.
- Oven: Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Use cornstarch. This helps thicken any of the water released from the peaches during the cooking process. Fresh fruit typically has less water content than frozen, so using fresh fruit can make the filling less runny.
Peach cobbler should be a little gooey in the center. This is because of the butter and sugar in the filling and topping. Overly gooey cobbler can be from using pie filling instead of fruit. Pie filling does not have the right texture and has too much sugar for cobbler.
Yes. Most people prefer peaches peeled for cobbler, but you can leave them on if you prefer.
The main difference between the two is the topping. Crisp topping typically has oats, whereas cobbler topping is more like a cake like biscuit.
Frozen unsweetened peaches are better than canned because you can control the amount of sugar.

It looks like a crumble! Though I think your 'biscuit' is our 'scone' - Wondering how I could cut down on the sugar.
Thanks! This is mean't to be a dessert recipe so I am not sure about reducing the sugar.
I am in Australia. What is all purpose flour? Plain or Self Raising?
Plain I think. It does not have any leavening agents.
