Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Servings: 8


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • flour, for dusting
  • 1 (8-biscuit) package refrigerated jumbo flaky biscuits
  • oil, for spraying
  • powdered sugar, for dusting


To make filling, in a large sauté pan, melt butter. Add apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Sauté over medium heat until apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out biscuits into 7- to 8-inch-diameter circles. Place 2 or 3 tablespoons of the apple filling on each circle and brush edges with water. Fold half of each circle over filling to make a half-moon shape. Seal by pressing edges with tines of a fork.

Working in batches of 2, spray pies on both sides with oil and place in air fryer basket lined with parchment paper. Set air fryer temperature to 350 degrees, and air fry for 5 minutes. Flip pies, spray with oil, and air fry for 5 minutes more. Repeat with remaining pies. Dust pies with powdered sugar.

Cook’s Note: For quick and easy pies, use one 21-ounce can apple pie filling instead of making your own.
