Hairdryer Baked Apples are the perfect quick dessert when you're craving something sweet. When I'm craving something sweet after dinner I always head straight for air fryer baked apples.
If I have chocolate or ice-cream in the house I'm going straight for those but in this scenario I'm describing I don't have any delicious treats just lying around. They're made with simple everyday ingredients I always have on hand (you will too) and are ready in just 15 minutes.
All you have to do is halve an apple, fill it with butter, cinnamon and a simple oat crisp then bake in your air fryer. Once that timer dings your house will smell divine and you'll have a deliciously soft, cinnamon baked apple with a crunchy crisp topping.
An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that uses convection to rapidly circulate hot air around food to cook and crisp it up. It’s essentially a mini convection oven that fits perfectly on your countertop.
Granny Smith, Golden Delicious and Honey crisp also work well so go ahead and get whatever is on sale! Here's what you'll need to make these baked apples (full measurements listed in the printable recipe card below)...
Brush a little butter over the cut sides of the apples, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Place the apple halves carefully into the air fryer basket, then cook for 15 minutes or until softened.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the apples are soft and tender, and the filling is crisp and browned. I love using Pink Lady apples when baking, but Granny Smith, Golden Delicious or Honey crisp would all work well.

Sweet, tart filling surrounded a sugary flakes crust. Brings back memories of those pies you could get at the store or your favorite drive through, only better.
Dip these luscious vittles in caramel or drizzle with frosting. I love the fact that I can hand them a pie and shew them outside to play.
They’ll love that they can eat a pie with their hands and not get in trouble or super messy! If you have the ingredients for apple pie on hand you can make these.
Butter: Don’t sub out the butter for something else Granny Smith Apples : These make the best apple pies Cinnamon: the Best flavor with apples Brown Sugar: Brown sugar combines incredibly with the cinnamon Cornstarch with Water: This is the thickener for the pie filling Refrigerated Pie Crusts: Makes this the easiest thing ever. Egg mixed with Water: Creates the shine on the pies.
Add in the apples, cinnamon and brown sugar and sauté until tender. In a small bowl mix the cornstarch and water and add it to the saucepan.
Fry: Place the hand pies into the basket of your air fryer. Glaze : While the hand pies are cooking in a small bowl add the powdered sugar and milk.
Once you remove the hand pies form the air fryer brush with the glaze and sprinkle with sugar. I honestly can’t think of any downsides to this these little hand held desserts.
Individual Servings: No more worrying about eating too much since these are perfectly proportioned. Less Mess: With hand held pies you don’t have to serve them on plates or use forks.
Easy: It doesn’t take any more time to make these than a pie and it’s faster. It’ll be easier to fit the filling in the pies.
Shape: You can keep these in a circle, simply place another on top and seal with a fork. When ready to use fry the unbaked pies the same as directed, just add a few more minutes to the cooking time.
For cooked pies simply thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat in the microwave or air fryer for a few minutes till heated through. Reheat as desired, microwave, oven or air fryer.
The wonderful thing about these hand pies is that they are so easy to vary. Cherry Blackberry Peach Raspberry Pumpkin Coconut and Chocolate Blueberry S’mores Make them savory too, try chicken pot pie, ham and cheese, or chicken and mushroom.

Sweet enough to be a dessert and healthy enough to be a side dish, it's the perfect in between. I LOVE the crunch of the cooked but not completely softened apples covered in sweet seasonings like clove, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
Place all your ingredients in an oven-safe bowl large enough for mixing and coat the apples thoroughly with your water and seasonings. Next, cook on air fryer mode at 350 degrees F for 6 minutes.
It is hard to find the “pot” in a small set or individual, but sometimes you can. While, you can typically use any oven safe dish, we like this specific Hairdryer Pot.

That pairing alone is excellent for a quick snack, but if you want to kick things up a notch, well, you got to bring in the big guns: butter and brown sugar. This fantastic recipe brings together the best of both worlds: a sweet treat AND a wholesome bite.
In this recipe, I used Granny Smith apples simply because I loved their crunch and tart flavor, but you’re free to use other varieties as well. The most important thing is that you need apples that retain their texture (tender but still firm) after the baking process.
Baked apples will have visibly softer and somewhat wrinkled skin, and the color can change. Winesap apples, on the other hand, will change from a vibrant red to a deeper shade of brown.
You can make this recipe as a delicious and healthy breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even as a bit of comfort food during a cold day. The smell of apples cooking in your air fryer with cinnamon and brown sugar is right up there with chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven.
It’s essential to make sure that you’re using the right variety of apples because some won’t stand up well to baking (especially in the high heat of an air fryer), and you’ll end up with a pile of bubbling mush. Since you’re stuffing the apples, you need to make sure that they’ll stay nice and upright since the air fryer.
If this is the case, make sure to slice off a very thin section at the bottom to give the apple a flat surface. Keep the butter cold until the last minute so that it’s easier to stuff inside the cored apples.
Lining the air fryer in foil will help speed up the cooking process AND keep all the stuffing and juices away from the cooking surface; otherwise, you’ll end up with a sticky, sugary mess inside your air fryer that’s a massive pain in the neck to clean. Rise and dry the apples, and carefully cut out the stem area with your knife.
Air fryers work well with other vegetables and fruits as long as they are starchy and have firm flesh. You can experiment with other airfryerrecipes using vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, and zucchinis for a delicious and healthy snack or side.
The combination of the warm stuffed apple against the cold ice cream is truly one that will get people talking (and probably Instagrammer too!) Depending on the size of your air fryer and your apples, you can tweak the recipe and increase the final yield so that your family and friends can enjoy the delicious dish.
Core the apples by removing the center and creating a large well in the middle (as shown in the video). Take out your butter from the fridge, cut into small pieces, and mix well with the nuts and brown sugar.
Line the bottom of your air fryer with foil, making sure to cover it well so that nothing leaks out. You can even crimp the sides a little to create a small “box” inside your air fryer basket to catch all the juices.
Place the stuffed apples into the air fryer and bake for around 25-30 minutes, depending on the level of softness you want. PlAir Fryer Cinnamon Apple Rings are an easy way to make a quick snack.

In another shallow dish, mix together the sugar and cinnamon for the topping. Place the rings in the bottom of the air fryer separated and not touching.
Air fry an additional 2-3 minutes or until apple slices look done. When finished, remove from basket, allow cooling for about 10 minutes and serve with caramel sauce.
Chunks of sweet apples in every bite and the entire cake from start to finish only took about 25 minutes. Fold the apples into the batter, mixing, so they are evenly distributed.
Pour the batter into the bowl, and set it into the air fryer at 320 degrees F for 12-15 minutes. Before removing, stick a toothpick in the center of the cake to make sure it’s fully cooked.
Note: The exact time is going to depend on what air fryer you own and how thick your cake pan is. You can use whatever you have on hand> I tend to use Gala, as they are sweeter, but any baking apple would do great in this recipe.
