One of the first dishes people think of when Filipino fast food is brought up is likely fried chicken. But when it comes to dessert, there is no doubt that peach mango pie is up there as one of the most memorable and delicious dishes to have. It is perfectly sweet with the most irresistible crunch that can only come from a perfectly fried outer layer.
But how do you achieve that tasty texture? I have found a way to make it with a very convenient cooking method, which is air frying. With this, you end up with a peach mango pie that is not at all oily and is absolutely crisp. Another perk to this recipe is that it is very easy to eat. This is the kind of dessert that you can pack for a long trip, and share with friends and family.
I also love how this dish has popularized peaches as a dessert ingredient for a lot of Filipinos. The peach has just the right amount of sugary flavor with its delicate sweetness and a bit of acidity. Another plus is that it is loaded with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A. Why not take a look at some more peach dishes you can make right at home?

How to Cook Air Fried Peach Mango Pie
Making the filling
Start off by putting 15 ounces of diced mangoes, 15 ounces of diced peaches, 10 tablespoons of granulated white sugar, ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, and a pinch of salt in one bowl. Mix these together thoroughly.
Cooking the filling
Get your mixture, and place this in a pan. Apple some heat, and just cook everything for 5 minutes. As you are cooking, you can combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 3 tablespoons of water. Mix these to create a slurry, and then pour this into your pan. Stir everything together, and just cook until you get a nice filling consistency once the mixture thickens. Then transfer this to a container, and let it cool.
Creating the bread pockets
Grab your 12 slices of loaf bread, and lay each slice down on a chopping board. Slice the dark edges out. Then dust some flour on your rolling pin, and then just use this to flatten your bread. You will now need to scoop about 2 ½ tablespoons of your filling, and place this in the middle of the flattened bread. Fold the bread symmetrically, and then brush some beaten egg on the sides. We will secure our bread pockets by pressing the edges against each other. Repeat this step until you have used up all of your filling.
Coating the bread pockets in breadcrumbs
Put 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 2 eggs you’ve beaten, and 1 cup of Good Life Panko Breadcrumbs in separate containers. And then dredge each bread pocket in all-purpose flour. Then dip them in the container with beaten egg. Lastly, we will roll these in Panko Breadcrumbs. Then just spray some cooking oil on each side of the coated bread pockets, and let this sit on a clean plate for a minimum of five minutes.
Air frying the peach mango pie
Here comes the exciting part! We will just place our pies in the air fryer carefully, and let them cook in 370 °F. Keep the air frying going until the breadcrumbs become golden brown. Then flip the pies over, and let the other side get cooked too.
