Air Fryer Apple Turnovers with Puff Pastry


Air Fryer Apple Turnovers with Puff Pastry are a delicious and easy dessert that you can make at home.

They are made with flaky puff pastry and a sweet and tart apple filling.

The turnovers are cooked in an air fryer, which gives them a crispy exterior and a tender interior.

To make Air Fryer Apple Turnovers with Puff Pastry, you will need the following ingredients:

2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
2 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the diced apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and flour. Stir to combine and cook for about 5-7 minutes, until the apples are slightly softened and the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and let it cool.
Roll out the thawed puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Cut each sheet into 4 equal squares.
Place a spoonful of the cooled apple filling in the center of each puff pastry square. Fold the squares diagonally to form triangles and press the edges to seal. You can use a fork to create a decorative edge if desired.
Brush the turnovers with the beaten egg wash, which will give them a nice golden color when cooked.
Place the turnovers in the preheated air fryer basket, leaving some space between them to allow for even cooking. Cook for about 10-12 minutes, or until the turnovers are puffed up and golden brown.
Once cooked, carefully remove the turnovers from the air fryer and let them cool slightly. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
Serve the air fryer apple turnovers warm and enjoy!

Here are some tips for making Air Fryer Apple Turnovers with Puff Pastry:

Use a good quality puff pastry. This will ensure that your turnovers are light and flaky.
Don’t overfill the turnovers. This will make them difficult to seal and they may leak when cooking.
Brush the turnovers with the egg wash before cooking. This will give them a nice golden color and help them to brown evenly.
Cook the turnovers in batches if necessary. This will prevent them from overcrowding the air fryer and they will cook more evenly.
Serve the turnovers warm. This is when they are at their best.
