Step One: Prepare Homemade Apple Pie Filing
In a large mixing bowl, add your apples (peeled and diced), then add the granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, and ground cinnamon. Toss well to coat the apples.
Spray your muffin tin with cooking spray, or brush with olive oil.
Step Two: Prepare Your Pie Dough
Roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface; if needed, roll your dough with a rolling pin. Then cut your dough out with biscuit cutters; cut them larger than the muffin tin hole to cover the sides.
The size will depend on the muffin tin you are using, I used a 6-inch biscuit cutter.
Step Four: Assemble Your Muffin Tin Pies
Set the dough into the muffin tins, place the muffin tin into the air fryer, and cook for 4-5 minutes at 320 degrees F (air fryer setting) or until the crust is golden brown.
Step Four: Add Your Pie Filling
Add about two tablespoons of pie filling to the center of the pie crust. Then roll your leftover dough, then use a pizza cutter to cut long strips. Use the dough and add two strips of dough in both directions.
Brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle some sparkling sugar on top. And then place the pan back into the air fryer for 4 minutes at 320 degrees F (air fryer setting).
Step Five: Serving
Serve with a drizzle of caramel sauce, or wtih vanilla ice cream.
Pro Tips For Cooking Mini Pies In Air Fryer
Cooking mini pies in an air fryer is a quick and easy way to achieve a crispy, golden brown crust, and a perfectly cooked filling. Here are some pro tips to help you cook mini pies in an air fryer:
- Don’t overfill the pies: Overfilling them can cause them to burst, so leave some room at the top.
- Brush the tops with egg wash: Brushing the tops of the mini pies before cooking will help them brown and become more crispy.
- Check for doneness: Check the mini pies periodically during cooking to ensure they don’t overcook or burn.
- Let them cool: Let the mini pies cool for a few minutes before serving to avoid burning your mouth, and allow the filling to set.
Following these pro tips, you can make delicious and perfectly cooked mini pies in your air fryer every time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make this?
This can be made in a mini muffin tin or a regular-size muffin tin. You can also use the same recipe and make one pie crust (a top and bottom) by using the exact instructions.
What Apples Work Best For An Apple Pie?
I used gala apples, as that is what I had on hand. You can also use Granny Smith or Honey Crisp apples; all are great for making an apple pie.

I also store them in the refrigerator for about 2 to 3 days. This freeze really well if you want to make them ahead of time. Place them in the refrigerator to defrost or on the counter.
