Servings 4 small apple pies Calories 496.9

Mini hand pies filled with a buttery apple-cinnamon mixture and topped with a sweet powdered sugar glaze. They bake in less than 10 minutes in an air fryer.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 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

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a non-stick skillet. Cook over medium heat until apples have softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

  1. Yummy and easy!
  2. super hard to make, dough stuck to fork, filling ran out. It was a total mess.
  3. This was super easy for a weeknight dessert. I did follow the suggestion of cutting the sugar and butter in half and it was the perfect sweetness for me. Mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty but they were very tasty. I would have needed to double the recipe of the glaze to get them - Read more ...

  5. Wow.... How delicious were this Apple Pie. This recipe is quick and easy. If you like the McDonalds apple pie your sure to like this one. I did make a few changes only because was't sure if I was going to like it and didn't want to make to many either. But was not to - Read more ...
  6. I used 5 tbsp brown sugar because I try to cut back on sugar if I making something myself. I did not have grapeseed oil so I lightly brushed olive oil. Overall very good dessert.
  7. I didn't have premade crust and just used my normal 1-crust recipe with butter instead of shortening. I also halved the recipe but I did end up with too much crust. Next time I think I will still halve the recipe but divide it into 4 smaller pies (not that any went wasting) maybe using - Read more ...

  9. These were easy to make and so good! Didn t change the recipe and liked adding the grape seed oil to make a nice brown top. Make sure all the apples are sealed inside. Yum!
