Air Fryer Cherry Pies

Raise your hand if you received an air fryer this past Christmas? I did and I cannot believe how amazing this small kitchen appliance really is!

Truth be told I’ve wanted an air fryer for quite some time. What prevented me from buying one? I kept questioning whether or not I really needed another small kitchen appliance on my countertop. Guess what? I did!

Santa (aka my hubby) decided I needed one because he’d seen one work its magic at a potluck luncheon at work. Someone actually hauled their air fryer to the office and made air fryer chicken wings. My husband came home raving about them.

Being a chicken wing fan, obviously, he was sold. And then, it happened again. The same employee decided to seal the deal with my Christmas gift by bringing it in again and making chicken wings. A special shout-out to Tim, my husband’s co-worker who made him a believer. Thank you Tim!

This brings me today’s recipe: Air Fryer Cherry Pies. I have a thing for cherries, dessert, and easy recipes. So let me tell you, this one is all of those and more. 

Before I go any further, I’ve gotta ask something. Was anyone else a bit intimidated by their air fryer? I was only because I felt the instructions were somewhat vague and left me scratching my head.

What is an air fryer?

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around the food using the convection mechanism. A mechanical fan circulates the hot air around the food at high speed, cooking the food and producing a crispy layer.

How is an air fryer different than an oven?

The hot air in an air fryer is not directly blown around the food. An air fryer’s heating element is above the food, it takes less time than a traditional or convection oven.

I asked some friends who had air fryers and their advice was to just jump in and start using it. And that’s my advice to you also. Buy some frozen appetizers and give them a whirl. It gives you a good idea of how your air fryer works and gets your toes wet.

What can I make in an air fryer?

  • Chicken wings
  • Zucchini fries
  • Frozen foods
  • Meatballs
  • Fried Pickles
  • And the list goes on and on!!!

Some of the reason I like my air fryer:

  • Fast preparation, food is done in just a few minutes.
  • Minimal clean-up, non-stick and easy to clean.
  • Takes less time to cook than it does for my oven to pre-heat, true story!
  • Doesn’t heat up my kitchen.
  • No OIL!
  • No stink from oil.

This Air Fryer Cherry Pie recipe came about because I had a box of refrigerated roll-out pie crusts in my fridge that needed to be used. What I also had was a can of cherry pie filling and two daughters stuck at home for a 2nd day due to icy roads…we’ll just say we needed a treat.

 

What do you need to make Air Fryer Cherry Pies?

  • Refrigerated pie crusts
  • Cherry Pie Filling
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Confectioner’s Sugar
  • Milk
  • Cookie Cutter
  • Air fryer

I used a scalloped “flower” cookie cutter that is approximately 5″ across. A circular 4″ cutter would be ideal. These really made a fun little snack that took approximately 15 minutes to prep and air fry. Once they are cooled I drizzled a small amount of glaze over the top and we dug right in.

  1. Yum!!! I can’t wait to make these cherry pies! I love my air fryer! Initially, I bought it for nuggets and fries. I’ve been experimenting lately… I actually made a roast chicken and it came out perfectly moist and delicious! The secret is a dry rub and to flip the bird half way through cooking time.

  2. Burgers in the Air Fryer are a must. Add 1 packet of onion soup mix to your burger. I’ve found using 90/10 burger meat will prevent smoking. Anything less and your kitchen will fill with smoke. I also make meatballs using a mixture of sausage with the burger meat. I then divide / freeze the meatballs in quart size freezer baggies placing 4 quart baggies in a gallon baggie for convenience of future meal prep. You can do the same with burgers. Grabbing a gallon baggie out is easier than searching fot individual quart baggies too.
