Whip up a batch of these easy and delicious air fryer apple hand pies. They taste just like fresh and hot apple pie, yet they are ready in a fraction of the time!

I love, love, love making crispy and flavorful desserts in my air fryer. Not only are they incredibly easy to make but they tend to be ready super-duper quick. This means I can enjoy a freshly baked (or air fried) treat any night of the week! Some other desserts I have shared are Mini Apple TartsAir Fryer Peach Hand PiesAir Fryer Pop Tarts, and Air Fried Oreos. I also recommend trying instant pot applesauce if you have lots of apples on hand.

Air Fryer Apple Turnovers

Today, I am sharing an amazing recipe for air-fried apple turnovers. They are made with just a few ingredients and capture that yummy fall apple flavor that so many of us love.

In fact, I’m hard-pressed to choose between apple and pumpkin. I love both flavors so much! 

These apple hand pies are made with just two ingredients: puff pastry and apple pie filling! If you haven’t used puff pastry in your air fryer yet, then you are in for a real treat!

Don’t let yourself be scared of puff pastry. It’s already pre-made and all you need to do is let it defrost on the counter for 30 minutes or so before cooking with it.

  1. I tried the apple and cherry turnovers and everyone loved them. I make them all the time now. Also with peach and blue berry filling. Very addictive
