Hey there friends! I made Buffalo chicken wings, Buffalo Sauce Cauliflower, fried pickles, mini pizzas, and for dessert, apple turnovers. Today I will share how to make apple turnovers in the air fryer. I will share all the recipes I made in the days to come.

Yesterday was an all-day affair with my new Air fryer. Our home team, the Buffalo Bills were in Jacksonville, Florida for a big game. Sadly, we lost but happy we even made it that far this season. My husband and our two sons were truly excited to watch the game. I decided to have a non-stop food fest for them.

My handy dandy Insta-pan gets put to good use for so many recipes. You can check out all I have made using the 7″ Springform/Bundt pan HERE.

Please keep in mind, I am a newbie to the air fryer. I am more of the type just to wing it, opposed to following recipes. There is always trial and error involved. Like for instance: the turnover in the middle, I wouldn’t put on top again like that. It didn’t bake all the way through on the bottom, and I ended up putting it back in the air fryer for a minute or two.


For these apple turnovers in the air fryer, all you need is a roll of Pillsbury Grand biscuits, Apple pie filling, and some cinnamon. I used lite no-sugar apple pie filling.

Open your roll of biscuits. Lay biscuits flat and go over with a rolling pin to thin them out.

Add your apple pie filling and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Fold over and pleat with fork closed. I used some of the apple pie filling syrup and brushed it on top, then sprinkled more cinnamon on as well.

I used my nifty Insta-Pan which works fantastic in the air fryer. Layer turnovers in the pan accordingly. You can use the Insta-pan in the pressure cooker, oven, and air fryer. It is quite versatile.

This is where a little trial and error came in for me. I pre-heated the air fryer at 350 degrees for about 2 minutes. Then I kicked down the temperature to 325 degrees. Full directions down below.

The family LOVED them.
