Does these Air Fryer Apple Pies Take a Lot of Time and Effort?

The great thing about McDonald’s apple pies is that they’re perfect for when you want something sweet on the go.

You may have a busy, hectic schedule that prevents you from doing as much baking as you’d like. The good news is that these Copycat McDonald’s Apple Pies are not difficult to make.

You’re going to use pre-made pie crust, apple pie filling, and an egg to quickly put these mini pies together before preparing them in your air fryer. You can have these pies put together and ready to eat in less than 20 minutes!

Cooking in the Air Fryer

If you didn’t already know, those pre-made pies at McDonald’s get tossed in the deep fryer. Unfortunately, this adds calories to the pies.

There are times when you can even taste a bit of the oil on the pies because they may have been prepared in old oil. When you make the copycat version of these pies, you won’t have to worry about that anymore.

The pies cook in the air fryer in about eight minutes, and they come out as crisp and crunchy as you would like, just like the ones you’d get at McDonald’s.
