Air Fryer Chocolate Glazed Apple Hand Pies

Chocolate Glazed Apple Hand Pies made in the air fryer and filled with a sweet homemade apple pie filling. Drizzling chocolate over the hand pies takes them to a whole new level of goodness. Quick and easy dessert for any night of the week.


For the apple hand pies:

  • 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated pie crust (for two pies) (allow the crusts to come to room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups peeled and diced - small dices -Envy apples (about 2 large apples)
  • 1/2 tsp Taylor & Colledge Organic Vanilla Bean Paste (vanilla extract works great, too)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 egg white plus 2 tsp water

For the chocolate glaze:

  • 2/3 cup Chocoley's Bada Bing Bada Boom Milk Chocolate


For the apple hand pies:

  • Be sure to let the pie crust dough come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before using.
  • Dice your apples on the small side since you are only using one tablespoon of filling in each hand pie, you want to get the most apple you can in the pie. 
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium high heat. Add apples, vanilla, nutmeg, brown sugar and cinnamon. Give it a good stir and cook about 5-10 minutes, until apples are tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Once your apple filling is cooked, start preparing the pie crusts for the filling.  Unroll each pie crust and using a 4 inch biscuit cutter (the rim of a 4 inch glass works well, too) and cut out circles.  You may need to re-roll the scraps to get enough crusts for all of the filling. 
  • Then, using a one tablespoon cookie scoop or measuring spoon, place a apple pie filling in the center of each circle. 
  • Fold dough over and crimp to seal using your fingers or a fork.  Beat the egg white and water together. Brush each hand pie with a little egg wash.

To Air Fry:

  • There is no need to preheat the air fryer for this recipe.  Simply spray the basket with non-stick spray and place your hand pies in without crowding them. I can fit three in mine with the pies not touching each other. 
  • Air fry them at 350 degrees for about 9-11 minutes, depending on your air fryer (the hand pies will be golden brown).  Remove to wire cooling rack to cool a bit before glazing.
  • No air fryer? No worries! You can bake the hand pies in the oven, if you don't have an air fryer.  Bake them in 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

To make the glaze:

  • I used Chocoley's Bada Bing Bada Boom Milk Chocolate melting it in the microwave according to the package directions. Then pour it into a squeeze bottle to then drizzle over the hand pies.  The chocolate sets pretty quickly and then you can enjoy the hand pies!
  • Alternatively, you can melt chocolate chips as well.
