Air Fryer Apple Pie Pockets Recipe

Warm cinnamon-spiced apples encased in a flaky, golden crust – get ready to fall in love with our Air Fryer Apple Pie Pockets. These pockets of happiness are the perfect treat for any time of day.


  • 2 sheets of pre-made puff pastry (thawed)

  • 2 medium apples (peeled, cored, and diced)

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)

  • 1 egg (beaten, for egg wash)

  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)

  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional, but highly recommended)

Step by Step:

  1. Combine diced apples, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and lemon juice in a bowl, coating the apples with the spice mixture.

  2. Roll out thawed puff pastry sheets and cut each into squares, approximately 5x5 inches, using a pastry cutter or sharp knife.

  3. Place a generous spoonful of the spiced apple mixture onto the center of each pastry square, leaving enough room to fold the pastry over.

  4. Brush the edges of the pastry squares with melted butter to ensure a secure seal and a golden shine.

  5. Gently fold each pastry square in half, creating triangular pockets. Use a fork to press down and seal the edges, adding an elegant, crimped appearance.

  6. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).

  7. Arrange the prepared apple pie pockets in a single layer within the air fryer basket, allowing room for expansion.

  8. Use the beaten egg to brush the top surface of each pocket, resulting in a beautiful golden hue after cooking.

  9. Air fry the pockets for 10-12 minutes until they've puffed up and achieved a gorgeous golden color. Keep an eye out to prevent excessive browning.

  10. Once cooked, delicately remove the apple pie pockets from the air fryer using tongs. Allow them to cool briefly before serving.

Pro Tip:

Enhance the flavor by adding chopped nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, to the apple mixture before assembling the pockets. The nutty crunch adds an exciting dimension to these Air Fryer Apple Pie Pockets.


  • Dust the pockets with powdered sugar before serving for an elegant touch.

  • Elevate the experience by serving the pockets with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream on the side.


Patience is key – allow the Air Fryer Apple Pie pockets to cool slightly before savoring the delightful combination of crisp pastry and warm apple filling.

Embrace the joy of creating your very own Air Fryer Apple Pie Pockets – a heavenly treat that promises to delight your taste buds on every occasion!
