How to Make Air Fryer Peaches
- To prepare the Air Fryer for baking the peaches, preheat it to 350°F. Meanwhile, combine the butter, cinnamon, sugar, honey, vanilla, and salt in a small bowl to make the delicious cinnamon butter.
- Slice the peaches in half and extract the pits. Then, brush with oil the exposed side of the peaches. Put them in the air fryer basket with the skin facing downwards, and cook for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes are up, place a spoonful of butter mixture onto the center of each peach half. Proceed to air fry for an extra 5 to 6 minutes, or until the top of the peaches are caramelized.
- Remove the peaches from the air fryer and serve immediately.
