Air Fryer Apple Pies

Makes 8

Ingredients

  • 3 cups peeled apples, diced
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 and 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 8 egg roll wrappers
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoon sugar

Method

  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°.
  2. In a small bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and cornstarch and mix well
  3. With a corner of an egg roll wrapper facing you, spread 1 scant tablespoon cream cheese to within 1 in. of edges.
  4. Place 2-3 tablespoons apple mixture just below center of wrapper
  5. Fold bottom corner over filling; moisten remaining wrapper edges with water. Fold side corners toward center over filling. Roll egg roll up tightly, pressing at tip to seal. Repeat with remaining egg roll wrappers
  6. In batches, arrange egg rolls in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray (I usally do mine in 2 batches of 4)
  7. Cook until golden brown, 5 minutes. Turn; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown and crisp, usually another 5 minutes.
  8. On a separate plate, combine sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon; roll hot egg rolls in mixture to coat (using a tongs help!)
  9. Serve and enjoy! (Leave to rest for about 5 minutes as the internal filling can be quite hot!)

*If you’re upscaling this recipe for more than 8 apple pies, I’ve found it best to make and cook 8 at a time. Any more and you risk letting the ones sit uncooked becoming soggy

**Cooked apple pies can be quickly reheated in your air-fryer preheated at 350F for 3 minutes
