  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg
  • 21 ounce canned cherry pie filling


  • Following package directions, allow the pie crusts to come to room temperature.
  • Pre-heat air fryer to 375 degrees F.
  • Roll out the pie crust and cut out shapes with a heart shaped cookie cutter.
  • Place a teaspoon of cherry pie filling on half of the hearts. Top with remaining hearts and seal edges with a fork.
  • Using a pastry brush, lightly coat each heart with egg wash.
  • Place hearts in air fryer basket and cook for 5-8 minutes on 375 degrees F. These fry quickly - check them at the halfway mark and adjust cooking time if needed.
  • Remove from air fryer and place on a cooling rack.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • Optional toppings:
    • After adding the egg wash, sprinkle raw sugar on the uncooked pies before cooking.
    • Drizzle cooked and cooled pies with a simple glaze made from confectioner's sugar and milk.
  • The yield will vary based on the size of your cutter.
  • To bake: preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place pies on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Transfer cooked pies to a cooling rack.
  • Other flavors of pie filling can be used: apple, peach, blueberry and strawberry are good.
