Air Fryer Apple Turnovers

We all love the small pastries filled with cinnamon spiced apples and have a sugar coating.

What if we told you that you can make them at home in your air fryer in less than 20 minutes?

Purchase pre-made pastry dough to save yourself the time and misery of making your own.

Once filled with your apple mixture, brush with egg yolk and bake in the air fryer for 6-9 minutes until crispy and golden brown.

Make sure not to overcrowd your air fryer basket as you need the hot air to circulate through each turnover for that perfect crisp.

We also recommend using thawed-out pastry dough as it remains firm but is still easy to manipulate into the desired shape.

Share with friends and family or store in the refrigerator for a quick snack on the go.
