Notes

Tips for Making Air Fryer Blueberry Hand Pies
  • Since air fryer temperatures can vary depending on the make and model, this recipe includes a range of suggested cook times. I recommend starting with less time, checking for doneness, and then adding more time as needed.
  • For those with dietary restrictions, you can make these hand pies using prepared gluten free or vegan piecrust.
  • Vary the filling flavour by swapping the blueberries for raspberries or blackberries. Other delicious filling versions include finely-chopped apple and cinnamon, or chocolately Nutella.
