Ingredients

  • 1 (14 oz.) package refrigerated pie crust or double pie crust recipe
  • 21 ounces pie filling about 2 cups if using homemade
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Coarse sugar optional topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer to 350°F for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, roll out the pie crusts and use a 3½ to 4-inch round biscuit cutter to cut 6 to 7 rounds out of each one.
    1 (14 oz.) package refrigerated pie crust
  • Add a tablespoon of pie filling to half of the rounds, if using a pie filling with big pieces such as apple or peach, you’ll want to chop it up a bit first.

  • Run a water-dipped finger or pastry brush around the edge of the pie crusts with filling on them then place the remaining pie rounds on top of the filled ones and use a fork to seal the edges.
  • In a small bowl, beat together the egg and water to make an egg wash and use a pastry brush to brush it over the tops of the pies then sprinkle with coarse sugar if desired.

  • Cook the pies for 6 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

Notes

  • I used a Cosori air fryer and can cook 4 pies at a time, other brands with smaller or round baskets may hold less.
  • I used a 3½ -inch cutter and it made 7 pies, a 4-inch cutter will yield 6. This is based on premade pie crusts, a homemade recipe may yield more.
  • You can use any flavor filling for these.
  • If you want to make half-moon shaped pies instead of round, you will need a 5-inch round cutter, then just add the filling to one side and fold it over and seal.
  • Try adding cinnamon or chocolate chips to store-bought filling to mix it up a bit.
  • These pies can also be dipped in a glaze like my Apple Hand Pies.
