Air Fryer Apple Pie Baked Apples

Air Fryer Apple Pie Baked Apples

Do individual apple pies require a lattice crust to be considered complete? Give us a sign! These scrumptious tiny dumplings that are perfect for the fall season. Air Fryer Apple Pie Baked Apples have all of the wonderful components of a traditional apple pie, but they are packaged in a single-serving container that is quite healthful. (And did we mention that they can be made in a far shorter amount of time as well?) In the event that you are not confident enough to create a lattice crust, you may just place a circular piece of dough on top of each apple. This dough should have a few slits cut into it so that the steam can escape.

This dish can be served with a dollop of Greek yogurt or caramel sauce for a more indulgent upgrade. Alternatively, it can be served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a breakfast-like experience. In this case, Pink Lady apples are ideal; however, if you are unable to locate them, you can substitute them with any type of baking apple such as Jonagold, Honeycrisp, or Braeburn.

How About Now?

The preparation time is five minutes.
25 minutes of cooking time
All in all, thirty minutes


  1. a trio of Pink Lady apples
  2. granulated sugar, two tablespoons, plus additional sugar for sprinkling
  3. Cornstarch, one teaspoon
  4. 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, plus additional cinnamon for sprinkling
  5. 1/4 cup of water
  6. 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  7. flour for all purposes, used for dusting
  8. 1 pie crust that has been chilled
  9. a one big egg, beaten to combine
  10. For drizzling, caramel sauce (this choice is optional).

Details to follow

  • One apple should be peeled and chopped very coarsely. Move the mixture to a smaller saucepan.
  • Before tossing, add the sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon to the mixture.
  • Following the addition of water and lemon juice, bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for around ten minutes, stirring the mixture often, until the apples are soft and the liquid has thickened.
  • While this is going on, cut off the top half an inch of the remaining two apples and hollow out the apples with a melon baller or a toothbrush.
  • After the apples have been arranged on the work surface, fill them with the cooked apple mixture.
  • Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/8 inch on a surface that has been lightly dusted with flour.
  • Using a four-inch cutter, cut out two circles. Cut each circular into quarter-inch-wide strips using a sharp knife.
  • After pressing the outside edges of the strips into an apple and cutting any excess, arrange the strips in a lattice pattern over each apple.
  • Using an egg, brush the dough, and then sprinkle it with sugar and cinnamon.
  • Apples should be placed in a basket of an air fryer. Fry at 350 degrees for approximately 14 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Before dripping with caramel sauce, if you are using it, allow it to slightly cool down.
