Crispy air-fryer apple turnovers

Crispy and golden flakey puffed pastry encases a soft and sweet apple filling. These are really simple to make whether you use an air-fryer or an oven to bake them.

Time to make : 35 minutes

Servings : 4


2 apples, peeled, cored and diced

1 tbsp butter

50g brown sugar

1/2 lemon, juiced

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pinch salt

1 x puff pastry sheet

1 egg, whisked

To finish : a dusting of icing sugar or a simple glaze made with icing sugar and water or milk


  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium to high heat. Add in the diced apples and cook for about 4 minutes until soft. Add in the brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and a pinch of salt, mix well and cook for another 2 minutes until the sugar has dissolved and the apples have started to caramelise. Remove from the heat and chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

  2. Slice your puff pastry sheet into 4 squares. Spoon the cooled apple filling into 1/2 of the squares on a diagonal.

  3. Use the whisked egg as an egg wash to brush around all of the edges of your individual puff pastry squares using a pastry brush. Fold the squares diagonally in half creating a triangle. Seal the edges using a fork for a ribbed edge effect.

  4. Line your air fryer drawer(s) with a sheet of baking paper, place your parcels in and brush all over with the remaining egg wash. Air-fry at 180°C for 15 minutes until puffed up and golden.

  5. Finish with a dusting or drizzle of icing sugar.


  • You can also bake these in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes, pre-heat your fan-oven to180ºC
