  • 2 refrigerator pie crusts
  • 1 1/2 cup cherry pie filling
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • Cooking spray


  • First, thaw the pie crusts per the directions on the package.
  • Roll out the pie dough on a lightly floured surface and using a cookie cutter cut out 3 or more 5-inch circles from each crust. Discard the scraps.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of cherry pie filling to the center of the circles leaving about a ½inch border.
  • Next, dip a fingertip into some water and run it around the edges of the circles. After that, fold them to create a half-moon shape.
  • Using your finger pinch the edges together. Crimp the edges together using a fork.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the egg with the water and use the egg wash to brush the surface of the hand pies.
  • Sprinkle with sugar and make 3 small incision cuts on the top.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees F.
  • Spray the basket with oil spray. Arrange the pies, in one single layer not touching each other. If needed cook in batches.
  • Air fry for 9-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
