Strawberry Hand Pie Air Fryer Recipe

Prepare Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 6 Pcs

Recipe Ingredients



  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg yolk


  • 1/2 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1 Strawberry preserve

Baking & Spices

  • 5/16 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Bread & Baked Goods

  • 1 Pie crust


  • 4 oz Cream cheese


Step-1: Preheat your air fryer to 375 °F.

Pour the strawberries into a mixing bowl. Use a strainer and strain the strawberry jam out of it. Pour the jam into a pot and put it on a stove until it has cooled down.


In a bowl, blend together all the ingredients (piping bag). To add extra flavor to your hand pie, add 1 tsp of almond extract or honey. Then remove the tip of your piping bag at the last moment


Take about 2 tbsp of this mixture, and shape it as you can pinch it with your fingers. Place it on the bottom of a pie shell.


(Place in fridge for 5 mins)


Put a tablespoon of strawberry preserve on top of your whipped cream base.  Repeat step 4 to the number of pies you want to make. Dust the rest with sugar


Take it out from the fridge and let it sit at room temperature until it is cold enough not to melt when you handle it anymore. Coat the hand pies with flour and egg wash and place in your air fryer (I used an aluminium foil-lined cooking sheet. Make sure not to leave any holes in between the pies)


(Put the cooking sheet in your air fryer) (Cook for 10 minutes) 


Before removing them from the cooking sheet, wait a little while, and enjoy!

How Long Do You Cook A Pie In An Air Fryer?

This is a question that many people are asking here. The answer is that it depends on the kind of pie you are cooking in your air fryer.

Pies with high-fat content take a little longer to be done compared to those with lower-fat content. Fruit pies take a little longer than the average pie.

You can start making it at 35 °C (95 °F), and it will take half an hour to be ready.

Can You Use An Air Fryer To Cook A Pie?

It is possible to use your air fryer machine to cook the pie. It is not quite like a conventional oven where you have to wait until the pie is completely cooked, but they will come out looking like a truly delicious apple pie, banana cream pie or other fruit pies you have made in your oven at home.

Can You Cook A Frozen Fruit Pie In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can. If you are using the standard recipe for these, it works just fine. If you are using frozen fruit, putting the pies in the cold might be a good idea and not letting them sit in the oven too long.

You will probably come out with a soft serve-like taste if that recipe made them. If you are going to freeze them, try freezing them for 15 minutes before you start to cook.

How Do You Cut Strawberries For A Pie?

There are a few ways to cut strawberries for a pie. You can take your knife, slice off a circle of strawberries from the bottom of your strawberry, and pop out with it.

You can also cut slices from the top and bottom of each strawberry so that it looks like an open strawberry if you want to serve it that way. You can also cut slices from top to bottom, but then you have to pop them out.

Why Does My Strawberry Pie Get Watery?

This happens when your pie cooks and the moisture from the strawberries come out of them as they are roasted in your air fryer. This will happen when you use fresh strawberries and let them sit a room temperature.

You might even want to pour on a layer of sugar syrup before you put them in the air fryer. This will help keep them fresh longer as they cool down after baking in your oven rather than just letting them sit until it cools down completely.

How Do You Keep Strawberry Pie Crust From Getting Soggy?

If you want to keep the water content of your strawberry pie crust down, then there are a few things that you can do.

If you have already mixed your crust up, then you can add a tablespoon of lemon or lime juice to the dough. A little bit of cornstarch powder on the strawberry slices will also help.

Make sure that you leave your strawberry pie in the air fryer for about two minutes after it has finished cooking. This will help prevent your pie from getting soggy if you follow these steps correctly.


Strawberry pie is a popular dessert, and it is not easy to come up with a great recipe. You do not want to choose the wrong ingredients or use the wrong proportions to make an even better outcome.

You can follow this recipe and get great results every single time. These are some of the best air fryer recipes you can try at home.

Remember that these are just an example of how you can use your air fryer machine to cook any kind of food, not only pies but other kinds.
