How to make baked peaches

The full instructions for this easy baked peaches recipe are found down below in the printable recipe card.

Step 1: Slice the peaches

Slice each peach in half vertically, twist the halves apart, and remove the pit. Place skin side down in a baking dish. I used my 7x9 inch baking dish but an 8x8 or 9x9 baking pan will work too. Just be sure to pick a dish where the peaches fit side by side without overlapping or have too much room around them.

In a small bowl, whisk flour, oats, browns sugar, and cinnamon together. Cut the cold butter into the mixture using a fork or pastry cutter, mixing around until small crumbs form. Add a large spoonful of crumble topping to the center of each peach.

Step 4: Serve and enjoy

Enjoy baked peaches as is, with a scoop of ice cream, or yogurt. I personally like to drizzle of maple syrup for extra sweetness! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Want to make these roasted peaches in the air fryer instead? Air fry at 350F for 8-11 minutes, until peach halves are tender and topping is browned.

Cobbler: A fruit dessert made with a top crust of pie dough or biscuit dough but no bottom crust. Crisp/crumble: In Alberta, the terms are mostly interchangeable.

Skip the work of peeling and slicing altogether and freeze whole peaches with their skins left intact. Just wash and dry your produce before placing in a zip-top plastic freezer bag.

By coating the peaches with a bit of lemon juice before freezing, the fruit maintains its color and quality without added sugar. You can also use ground vitamin C (as Alton Brown suggests), or use a fruit-preserving product such as Ball's Fruit Fresh in place of the lemon juice.
