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!
