The weather is starting to cool off, and that always puts me in the mood for apple pie. Instead of making a whole apple pie, I decided on making these easy hand pies in my air fryer.

I bought the 9-inch pie crust ready-made and a can of apple pie filling. If you would like to make your own pie crust and apple pie filling See my recipe here: Sam's Apple Pie.

Apple Hand Pie Ingredients:

  • 2 pie crusts (9-inch)
  • 1 can apple pie filling (I used a 21oz. can of Duncan Hines Comstock Apple Pie Filling) 
  • 1 egg beaten
  • Water to wet the edges
  • White sugar to sprinkle over top

Apple Hand Pies Air Fryer

I cut out 5-inch circles from the pie crust. I didn't have a 5-inch cookie cutter so I used a small bowl that measured 5-inches across.

I got three circles out of each pie crust, and after rolling out the remaining dough I got three more for a total of 9 hand pies.

Place one tablespoon of pie filling in the middle of each cutout, wet the edge with water, fold over and crimp with a fork.

Hand Pies

I brushed each hand pie with the beaten egg mixture and poked a fork through in three places to help release the steam. Then I sprinkled the tops of each with white sugar.

Air Fry Apple Pies

I started my Ninja Air Fryer and set it to Air Crisp. Set the temperature to 350 degrees and the time to 8 minutes. I could only fit four at a time in the basket of my air fryer, you don't want them to touch. Times and Temperatures may vary with different air fryers.

Cooling Apple Hand Pies

I set them on a rack to cool for at least 10 minutes. Serve with ice cream, or as you see in the intro photo I served some with caramel sauce. 

My grandsons were visiting so needless to say that these didn't last very long. The best thing about these is that they are so easy to make with an air fryer.

Don't have an air fryer? No problem preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until they are golden brown.

The Ninja Foodi Grill is so much more than just an air fryer, read my review here:

  1. Oh, what a perfect Fall treat. I grew up in Apple Country in western New York and once lived near a Cider Mill. These apple hand pies would be real tasty with a glass of sweet Cider. And so simple and quick to make. Thanks so much for the recipe, Sam.

    1. For sure Pat, these are just the perfect fall treat. Now I need to go out and pick up some sweet Cidar.

  2. Your petite hand apple pies look delicious and you did give us a very easy recipe to follow! I am curious, what brand of canned apple pie filling do you use? The last can I bought was not good at all and I may need to order any canned pie filling I want from now on since our local grocery store is determined to make things difficult. btw, the air fryer looks awesome too. I appreciate it's versatility.

    1. Oh gosh, I just updated the post Cynthia. I used a 21oz. can of Duncan Hines Comstock apple pie filling that I picked up from Wal-Mart. I so enjoy experimenting with my air fryer. You can easily make these in the oven, but I like to be different!!

    2. Oh, good! Thank you Sam. We have a Walmart here, plus they let you order online too (for some stuff) I'll seek out the Duncan Hines Comstock asap.

  3. These look so easy and delicious, Sam! I love that you also provided a link to your apple pie recipe for people who would prefer to use a homemade pie crust dough and pie filling. Thanks for sharing both recipes!

    1. They were really delicious Margaret, I do like like making things from scratch but these were so easy with the pie crust and the can of apples.

  4. The perfect autumn snack for sure Sam! These sound like a really good and flavorful treat for the whole family. Thanks for all your recipes!

  5. Oh Sam these look so good! I'm starving right now, and this article WILL send me to the kitchen sooner than I planned. Several people I know have an air fryer, and swear by them. The more I see recipes like this, the more I want one!

  6. These apple hand pies look so delicious and just perfect for this autumnal weather. It sounds like an easy recipe and quick too! Thank you so much for your delicious recipes! :)
