Apple Pie In Air Fryer

I grew up with homemade apple pieas the staple family pudding. My dad is a huge fan of it, and he would alwaysask my mum to make it. Before then I believe that my Grandma used to make itfor him.

It would be served with whippedcream, ice cream or custard and there would never be any left.

But because Dominic hates applepie it is something that we rarely have as we often want to have something thatwe all love. So, it has become something that I have forgotten about for the lastdecade or so.

So here I am getting reunitedwith my apple pie and showing that it can be modernised with the help of yourair fryer.

I like apple pie the most in theair fryer, because it can make the pie crust so lovely and crispy and give it agolden glow.

I originally shared with you howto make air fryer apple pie ramekins and that was because the air fryerthat we owned was the air fryer basket type and was never big enough forhomemade apple pie, or the pie pans that people use in an air fryer oven.

So, when we upgraded to the air fryer oven, air fryer apple pie was the top of our list. It feels so good that after talking about making a homemade apple pie in the air fryer oven for so long, that we are finally getting around to making one for you.

Plus, as well as our free newsletter, we also have a free air fryer mini course. It is ideal for air fryer beginners or those that want to get more confident with their air fryer. The free course runs for 5 days with a new lesson delivered each day to your inbox.

Can You Cook Apple Pie In Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook an apple pie in the air fryer. Air fryer apple pie whether cooked from scratch or using a shop bought frozen one, is fantastic in the air fryer.

You get the best crispy pie crust thanks to the air fryer, which is much better than the pie crust you achieve when baking an apple pie in the oven.

Plus, remember the air fryer cooks food faster than the oven!

Can You Bake A Pie In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can. You can cook any pie in the air fryer. From an air fryer frozen chicken pot pie to a tasty Aussie meat pie to dessert pies such as an air fried apple pie.

You can place the pie in the air fryer, add some egg wash or extra virgin olive oil and then let the air fryer work its magic.

If it a sweet pie such as cherry pie, you can also sprinkle with sugar and the top of the pie crust with glow like it does from a bakery.

Air Fryer Apple Pie From Scratch

Recipe This | Air Fryer Apple Pie (3)

I know some of you that will be reading our air fryer apple pie, will have seasonal apples and a shop bought pie crust. Well here in the Milner’s we love to make our own homemade air fryer pie crust.

It issomething that I have made for a long time and I couldn’t imagine not making apie crust. It means I know EXACTLY what goes into the pie crust and I canmix it up with my favourite seasonings such as adding cinnamon for makinghomemade apple pie.

As well asthis, I love how cheap it is to make my own pie crust and I also find it to belike therapy, as baking really chills me out when I am feeling stressed.

But if youare using your own shop bought pie crust, you can skip the air fryer pie crust stage andgo straight to the apple stage.

Air Fryer Pie Pan

Recipe This | Air Fryer Apple Pie (4)

My air fryer apple pie is all about that air fryer pie pan. This is the one we have, and it is the perfect size and shape for making an air fryer apple pie. We currently have one round and one oval shaped and they are perfect.

They arealso non-stick, and I have found as I remove the slices of apple pie from thepie pan that they come away easily without needing a deep soak.

You canalso hold down the pie pan over your rolled out pastry and easily cut around itand then efficiently add your pie crust to your pie pan.

Like yousee in this photo:

Then when you put the top layer on your apple pie you can layer it over the top of your pie pan, and it makes it so much easier to do.

Then you use a knife and trim around the edges and add any patterns you want to on your apple pie pastry, and don’t forget your holes on top to help the apple pie breathe.

I also finishoff with egg wash at helps give it that beautiful golden glow that we all loveto see in an apple pie.

I love tolook at it once it has the egg wash on and think of the little work that wentinto putting it together and the excitement of the warm apple pie that I willhave once it has been in the air fryer oven.

If you don’t have a pie pan for making your air fryer apple pie yet, then this is the pie pan we recommend.

Air Fryer Oven ApplePie

Thebenefit of using the air fryer oven for making air fryer apple pie is that youcan easily make 3 apple pies at once and you’re not as restricted with the sizeof your apple pie.

You thenjuggle the shelves by swapping it over to make sure they all have a chance toproperly cook.

If you’re starting out with the air fryer oven and using it to make your apple pies, I recommend you start with one apple pie and as you build up your confidence you can make more than one at once.

How To Cook Apple Pie Using Air Fryer?

Recipe This | Air Fryer Apple Pie (10)
  • Prep. Make your pie crust and roll it out. Place your pie pan over it and cut it out so that you can quickly get your apple pie crust to the correct shape.
  • Apples. Peel and dice your apple chunks into equal shapes. Load them into your pie pan on top of your bottom crust.
  • Season. Sprinkle with your favourite apple pie seasonings such as sugar and cinnamon.
  • Finish. Add the top pie crust to the pie pan and using scissors trim the edges and make sure you have cut a hole in the centre of the pie so that it can breathe. Also add egg wash to the top of your pie.
  • Cook. Place the apple pie in the air fryer on the medium shelf.

Tips For PerfectAir Fryer Apple Pie

  • Apple size matters. Aim for small chunks of apple that are a similar size. If you don’t you will end up with chunks of apple undercooked and others overcooked and then a few just right and it can ruin your apple pie.
  • No blind baking. I know in some countries blind baking your pie crust is a thing. But you really don’t need to blind bake pastry unless you are making a no bake pie.
  • Use your pie pan as a pie cutter. That way you’re not rolling it out and second guessing. Makes adding your pie crust to your pie pan much easier.
  • Don’t forget the egg wash. It makes such a difference to an apple pie and gives it that wonderful golden glow.
  • Add your chunks of apple into your pie pan as you slice. That way you can see exactly how much apple will fit in your pie pan and you can double check that the chunks of apple are of a similar size.
  • As many apples as you can fit is what you want to work towards. Because an apple pie is nicest when it is fully loaded and by getting the apple chunks in the gaps, your apple pie can turn out better.

How Long To Air Fry Apple Pie?

Apple pie baked in the air fryer takes JUST 30 minutes. Just think that is half an hour for a delicious homemade warm apple pie cooked from scratch using your air fryer.

A true winner for me and remember you can mix and match and do similar for an air fryer pumpkin pie, air fryer cherry pie, air fryer plum pie and so many others.

When you add the apples, 6-7 apples before being peeled is an average. But the amounts of apples you need depends on the size of your pie pan. You also want to push down the apples into any gaps and fit as many as you can in your pie pan.

You can use any type of apples in your apple pie. Though traditionally Bramley or Granny Smiths work the best.
