Air Fryer, Easy Homemade Lemon Turnovers

I never thought I would be making homemade pastry until I had my air fryer, I never attempted this, but I have been really missing out. If you are unsure about making it because it seems difficult, trust me it is so easy, you will be wondering why it took you so long to make.

Today’s Baking Project, Homemade Lemon Turnovers.



  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup lemon pie filling
  • olive oil spray
  • sparkling sugar


  1. Start by laying out the thawed puff pastry on a flat surface. Cut the sheet into 4 squares.
  2. In the center of the puff pastry, add about 2 tablespoons of the pie filling.
  3. Fold the pastry over, making a triangle. Use your fingers to press the dough together, if you are having a  hard time getting the pastry closed, dip your finger into water and brush it along the edges.
  4. Spray the top with olive oil and then sprinkle some sparkling sugar on top.
  5. Set them in the air fryer basket or on the air fryer tray (both sprayed with olive oil, to prevent sticking)
  6. Set in the air fryer for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F (air fryer setting) flip and air fry for another 3-5 minutes, until fully cooked.
  7. Plate, serve, and enjoy!
