Amazing Air Fryer Lemon Turnovers! One of my favorite breakfasts is lemon, and it tastes even better because it was made in an air fryer!

How to Keep Things

  • If you have any leftover turnovers, store them in an airtight container after allowing them to cool to room temperature. When kept at room temperature, they will last for roughly one or two days.
  • Before storing, you may always reheat them in the air fryer until they’re warm.

Methods for Freezing 

  • Nothing compares to having delicious snacks in a well-stocked freezer. These lemon turnovers freeze really well, so feel free to double or quadruple the recipe.
  • Place the turnovers on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper to freeze. Once they are frozen solid, place the baking sheet in the freezer. After removing them, put them in a freezer bag. They’ll endure for one to two months, roughly. Frozen lemon turnovers can be air-fried by simply placing them in the air fryer basket, freezing them, and then cooking them at 350 degrees for ten to twelve minutes.


Lemon Turnovers:

  1. 1 sheet of thawed puff pastry
  2. Half a cup of lemon curd or lemon pie filling
  3. 1/2 cup powdered sugar for icing
  4. three to four teaspoons of milk


  • Place the thawed puff pastry on a level surface to begin. Divide the sheet in half lengthwise.
  • Spoon roughly 2 tablespoons of the pie filling onto the center of the puff pastry.
  • Forming a triangle, fold the pastry over. Press the dough together with your fingers. Use a wet finger to run over the edges of the pastry if you are having trouble closing it.
  • Apply cooking spray or brush with egg wash on the top.
  • Place them in the air fryer tray or basket (both should be coated with cooking spray to stop sticking).
  • Once the food is halfway cooked, place it in the air fryer and cook for an additional three to five minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Beat together the powdered sugar and milk in a small mixing dish while the turnovers are frying.
  • Over the turnovers, drizzle the frosting.
  • Arrange, present, and savor!
