Air Fryer Caramel Apple Empanadas

20 servings


30 minutes

total time


30 ounces refrigerated pie crusts (two 15 oz boxes - 4 crusts total)

21 ounce apple pie filling

11 ounce Kraft caramels (unwrapped)

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon


To a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the apple pie filling and caramels. Stir frequently until fully melted.

Remove from heat and set aside.

Unroll each pie crust and use a large coffee mug or cookie cutter (4" round) to cut out 5 circles per pie crust for 20 total.

Place approximately a tablespoon of the filling into the middle of each dough round.

Carefully fold over the circle and pinch the edges together to seal.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter (or in a small saucepan over low heat) and brush onto each empanada.

In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over each empanada.

In batches, place the empanadas into the basket of an air fryer and cook for 10 minutes at 330°. Don't overcrowd. Air fryers can differ greatly so keep an eye to make sure they are not burning.

Repeat with remaining batches.
