POPSUGAR is excited to present this fried apple pies recipe from Paula Deen's Air Fryer Cookbook
I remember watching my grandmother make these pies in her kitchen in Albany, GA. I was so excited when canned biscuits first came out and it was so fun to bang the can on the counter to pop open. For a lighter, fluffier version of this recipe, I like to replace the biscuits with puff pastry.
For quick and easy pies, use one 21-ounce can of apple pie filling instead of making your own.
- 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
- 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 temperature to 350°F, 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.
