How To Make Air Fryer Apple Pie Tarts
Start by cutting out the bottom crust, I used a biscuit cutter and make the hole slightly larger than the mold. Grease the silicone mold., and then place the dough into the mold, pressing the sides.
Then in a large mixing bowl mix together the apples, sugar, flour, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, and nutmeg. Mix until well blended. Scoop the pie filling into the hole in the middle, in the muffin tin.
Then get the second sheet out, and cut out toppers, for the mini apple pies.
Set in the air fryer oven, and set the temperature for 320 degrees For 6 minutes, after 6 minutes flip the pastry over and air fry for another 2 minutes.
Notes About The Ingredients:
Pie Crust: You can use either a homemade or store-bought pie crust. You will need both sheets for this recipe.
Apple Pie Filling: You can use either homemade or canned. I made a simple homemade apple pie filling.
Topping: You can top with coarse or sparkling sugar. A simple mix of powdered sugar and milk would work as well if you wanted a simple glaze. (1 cup of powdered sugar and 2 to 3 tablespoons of milk)
How Does An Air Fryer Work?
Baking in the air fryer works a lot like an oven, except for a fan. The hot air is circulated to the air fryer by a fan. The fan circulates the hot air around, which cooks up your food.
Since the air fryer is smaller than an oven and with a fan, the baked goods will get perfectly cooked in so much less time.
All air fryers are similar since they all have the same mechanics, so no matter what air fryer you use for this recipe, you will find ned up with a light and flaky pastry dough. I have used the Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Crisp Lid, and other air fryer basket and oven models, all cook about the same. The cooking time will vary based on which air fryer you use.
Can I Bake Air Fryer Apple Pie Tarts?
Yes, remember anything you make in the oven or air fryer you can make in the opposite. This recipe is no different.
Follow the directions below in the recipe, place the tart pan into the oven, and bake in a preheated 325 degrees F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Make Ahead / Storing Instructions
This is a great recipe that stores really well for a few days. Let the Air Fryer Apple Pie Tarts cool to room temperature, and then place them into an airtight container.
The tarts will last at room temperature for about 1 to 2 days, but they will last for about a week in the refrigerator.
You reheat them in the microwave or air fryer right before serving.
How To Freeze
If you want to make these and freeze them, that will make for a great Air Fryer Freezer Dessert.
Prepare as directed, let cool to room temperature, wrap the Air Fryer Apple Pie Tarts tightly individually in saran wrap, and then place them into a freezer bag. They will last for about 2 months.
You can either let them thaw at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator to use from frozen.
