Air Fryer, Air Fried, Instant Pot, Vortex Plus, The BEST Handmade Air Fryer Caramel Apple Hand Pies Recipe

These are so easy to make, and they are absolutely fabulous to eat. These are a great treat for kids of any age. My husband brings them to work, for his afternoon coffee break and snack. I pack them in my kid's lunchbox for school days.


  • 1 package prepared pie crust dough
  • 1 cup apple pie filling
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tablespoon Wilton White Sparkling Sugar
  • 1 package caramel sauce (for drizzling over)


  1. Start by laying out your dough on a floured surface.

  2. Use your biscuit cutter and make your circles, choose a size that will allow you to put in a few tablespoons of filling.

  3. Remove the excess dough from the counter, and set aside (as you will roll that later to make more hand pies)

  4. Add about a tablespoon of apple pie filling to the center of the circle

  5. Fold over the dough, and then use a fork to seal the edges.

  6. Then brush the egg white on, and sprinkle some sparkling sugar on top.

  7. Finish making them, until your baking tray is filled. Do not crowd them, as you don't want them to touch.

  8. Set your air fryer oven to 350 degrees for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes check and see if they are cooked. Mine where not, so I added another 2 minutes. To get the dough golden brown.

  9. Plate, serve and enjoy!
