Air Fryer Apple Pies


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, diced
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • ½ (14 ounce) package pastry for a 9-inch double crust pie
  • cooking spray
  • ½ tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon milk, or more as needed
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Combine apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a non-stick skillet. Cook over medium heat until apples have softened, about 5 minutes.


  • Step 2

    Dissolve cornstarch in cold water. Stir into apple mixture and cook until sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Remove apple pie filling from heat and set aside to cool while you prepare the crust.

  • Step 3

    Unroll pie crust on a lightly floured surface and roll out slightly to smooth the surface of the dough. Cut the dough into rectangles small enough so that 2 can fit in your air fryer at one time. Repeat with remaining crust until you have 8 equal rectangles, re-rolling some of the scraps of dough if needed.

  • Step 4

    Wet the outer edges of 4 rectangles with water and place some apple filling in the center about 1/2-inch from the edges. Roll out the remaining 4 rectangles so that they are slightly larger than the filled ones. Place these rectangles on top of the filling; crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Cut 4 small slits in the tops of the pies.

  • Step 5

    Spray the basket of an air fryer with cooking spray. Brush the tops of 2 pies with grapeseed oil and transfer pies to the air fryer basket using a spatula.

  • Step 6

    Insert basket and set the temperature to 385 degrees F (195 degrees C). Bake until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove pies from the basket and repeat with the remaining 2 pies.

  • Step 7

    Mix together powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl. Brush glaze on warm pies and allow to dry. Serve pies warm or at room temperature.
