Apple pie is one of my favorite recipes ever!

The power of an apple pie is mesmerizing at times..:)
And now you can make those in one of my favorite kitchen gadgets ever…the air fryer!
Ask anyone who’s been to our home this past year.
That machine is always cooking or baking something!
We brag about our air fryer!
Apple Hand Pies Made in the Air Fryer
And these beautiful hand pies were cooked in this air fryer.
We make almost everything possible in that brilliant machine.
French fries, fried okra, baked potatoes, veggie stir-fries and…
Now we’ve learned how to make hand pies!
The beauty of hand pies is that you can make so many different versions!
Peach, pumpkin and even blueberry goodness can fill these hand pies!
But today we’re focusing on apple hand pies.
What Apples to Use for Air Fryer Apple Hand Pies
For this recipe, we highly recommend using honey crisp apples.
Because that’s our favorite choice for these handheld pies!
They’re crisp, juicy, and have a honey-sweet and tart flavor.
But we also toss in a few granny smith apples to add just a few more touches of tartness.
That helps balance the sweetness of the brown sugar!
Sweet and tart flavors make the perfect apple pie, don’t you think?

No shame here!
Because that makes my apple hand pie adventures so much easier!
