The air fryer makes life so much easier in the kitchen. You can cook, bake, fry, and more with one handy dandy countertop appliance.

If you have never tried to make anything in the air fryer these hand pies are a great place to start. They taste great, are easy to make, and can be put together with simple ingredients that are easy to keep on hand!

I love making pie recipes in the fall. There’s just something about the cooler weather that screams for recipes like pumpkin hand pies and other indulgent desserts.

If you don’t like baking this is the perfect type of pie recipe for you to try. The air fryer makes quick work of the process and the pies are more like pop tarts!

What are hand pies?

Hand pies are pies that are wrapped up into little hand held pockets. Think of a pop tart crossed with a pie! These pumpkin hand pies are a portable little pumpkin pie pocket that you can eat on the go.

Hand pies can also be filled with savory fillings like meat mixtures, and veggies. There are so many possibilities that you can explore when creating your own hand pie recipes.

Can I use any type of air fryer for these pies?

You can! You can use the oven style air fryers or regular air fryers. This recipe could be easily adapted to work in the regular oven as well.

If you don’t have an air fryer you can try baking these according to the instructions on the pie crusts. Keep an eye on them and pull them out when they’re browned and slightly flaky on top!

Ingredients needed for pumpkin hand pies:

This recipe will use ready made pie crusts, the rolled up ones are easy and quick. You’ll also need some canned pumpkin pie filling, eggs, condensed milk, icing, and a round cookie cutter or press/sealer.

There’s nothing complicated in this recipe and most of these ingredients can be kept on hand for quite awhile.

Kitchen essentials for tasty hand pie recipes:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough. 

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

This recipe uses an air fryer, if you don’t have one they’re definitely a versatile tool that can be very helpful in the kitchen.
