What you will need to make air fryer apple pie
I used my Cosori 5.8 quart fryer, and wrote the recipe cooking time and temperature based on mine. Any brand should work, as long as the pie plate fits in the basket. You can use a 7, 8, or 9 inch pie plate with fluted edges. I used an 8 inch to fit in the Cosori's basket.
Besides an air fryer and pie plate, the recipe ingredients are:
- Refrigerated Pie Crusts
- Canned Apple Pie Filling
- Melted Butter
- teaspoon Granulated Sugar
- teaspoon cinnamon
How you make this apple pie in the air fryer
To make this apple pie in your air fryer, unfold the pie crust. Use a rolling pin to flatten it out if necessary. Place one pie crust circle into the bottom of the pie plate, lightly pressing it down. Pour the pre-made apple mixture into the crust. Top with the second crust and trim excess edges.
Cut a few slits in the top of the pie to release steam while it's cooking. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter, then brush the top of the crust with the melted butter. You can also use an egg wash to help the pie turn golden while it's cooking.
Sprinkle a dash of the cinnamon sugar on top and place in the air fryer basket. Use the air fry feature and cook at 320 degrees Fahrenheit for about 18-23 minutes. The pie crust should be golden brown.
Once it is done cooking, you can sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar, white sugar, powdered sugar, or another dash of the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Can I make my own apple pie and crust?
Yes! One of my favorite recipes if for a flaky crust from scratch. This pie uses pre-made recipe ingredients to cut down on prep and baking time.
What is the best apple for baking?
There are many types of apples, but for baking apple pies, you want to be selective of which apple you use. I like to make traditional apple pie with tart apples, like Granny Smith. If you prefer a sweeter apple pie mixture, you can use Gala apples.
Can I make this apple pie ahead of time?
Yes. You can make this pie a few days early, and keep it covered with plastic wrap, stored in the refrigerator. This pie will keep for up to a week before it starts to become a little soggy.

Air Fryer Apple Pie
- Air Fryer
- Pie Plate
- 1 box Pre Made Pie Crusts (2 crusts)
- 1 21 ounce Canned Apple Pie Filling
- 1 tbsp Unsalted butter melted
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- To begin, unfold the pie crust. Use a rolling pin to flatten it out if necessary.
- Place one pie crust circle into the bottom of the pie plate, lightly pressing it down. Then, pour the apple filling over the crust, and spread it evenly.
- Top with the second crust and trim excess edges. Cut a few slits in the top of the pie to release steam while it's cooking.
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter, then brush the top of the crust with the melted butter. You can also use an egg wash to help the pie turn golden while it's cooking.
- Combine the sugar and cinnamon together, and sprinkle a dash of the cinnamon sugar on top and place in the air fryer basket. Use the air fry feature and cook at 320 degrees F for about 18-23 minutes. The pie crust should be golden brown on top, and cooked on the bottom.
- Once it is done cooking, you can sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar, white sugar, powdered sugar, or another dash of the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
- Serve chilled or warm, topped with ice cream or whipping cream.
- To keep the edges of the crust together, you can brush the edges with water, and that helps them stick together.
- If you have a sweet tooth for desserts, you can serve a slice of this cooked apple pie with vanilla ice cream, paired with an optional cup of coffee.
- You don't have to sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the pie, but I think it just gives it a bakery finished look.
