[Recipe] Apple Pies Using Airfryer

October 29, 2016 7 Comments A+ a-

If you have too many apples in the fridge and an airfryer at home, this is the perfect recipe for you. 

That was what happened to me one day, so out came this recipe. I love how having the airfryer means that I did not have to add a single drop of oil to cook the apple pies, yet they came out all nice, fluffy and crispy.

Try this recipe too and have fun! If you have any other favourite puff pastry recipes too, let me know in the Comments below :)

Apple Pies Using Airfryer
Yields 20 pieces

40g butter
4 apples, sliced & diced (see below)
55g white sugar
25g brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

3 large sheets of frozen puff pastry
1 egg, beaten


1) Heat butter over a boiling pan until the butter bubbles.

2) Put remaining ingredients of (A) into the pan. Cook over medium fire and constantly stir for 10 min until the apples become soft.

3) Cool the apple mixture.

4) Meanwhile, preheat airfryer at 180 degrees for 5 min.

5) Remove frozen puff pastries from freezer. Thaw for 15 min. 

Tips: Thawing time can be reduced if the puff pastry is placed on top of the warmed-up airfryer.

6) When puff pastries are slightly softened, run a knife to cut into 9 smaller squares. Apply a layer of egg wash around the sides of each square. The egg wash helps to seal the sides later.

7)  Add a spoonful of apple onto the middle of the puff pastry square.

8) Fold down the top half of the square so it becomes a rectangle. Using the back of a fork, push down the edges to seal the apple into the puff pastry. Poke a few holes at the top to enable steam to be released. Brush a thin & even layer of egg wash on the top, bottom and sides of the uncooked apple pie.

9) Repeat for the remaining apple pies. Store in fridge on parchment paper if not yet ready to airfry.

10) Place 4 apple pies in the basket. Bake in airfryer at 180 degrees for 8 min.

11) Turn the apple pies with bottom face-up. Continue to bake in airfryer at 200 degrees for 3 min. The whole apple pie would now be golden brown all over. You are now ready to serve!

With the apple pies recipe I saw in photo no.10 there was paper under the basket. Am I right?

Hi Maria! Yes you are very observant. I usually use kitchen paper towel below the basket to absorb oil :)

What are the conversions on the measurements to cups, tablespoons, teaspoons, etc.? Thanks, looks so good. I like using fresh apples and not canned apple pie filling.

Here are my approximations:
3T. butter
4 apples
4 T. white sugar
2 T. brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt

Bake in airfryer @350 F. for 8 mins. then turn up heat to 390 F. Turn pies and bake for an additional 3 min.

I would like to use canned biscuits to make these pies and I will be using dried apple filing. Do I brush the biscuits with melted butter and what temp do I use and for how long. Thank you,
