I recently published how to make Cinnamon Apple Empanadas. This is a fabulous recipe that my entire family loved. 

Since I recently purchased an Air Fryer, I decided to try making these Cinnamon Apple Empanadas in the air fryer.

I have fallen in love with my air fryer and I am always trying to find new ways to use it. Using the air fryer creates less of a mess and is a bit healthier. 

What I love about making cinnamon apple empanadas is that not only are they easy to make but they use very few ingredients. 

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, diced
  • Cinnamon/Sugar mix 
  • Empanada wraps (found in your grocer’s freezer)- thawed
  • Oil for coating

The steps to make Cinnamon Apple Empanadas are simple. 

  • Peel & dice 3 Granny Smith apples
  • Melt butter in a saucepan
  • Once melted, stir in the sugar & the cinnamon 
  • Let dissolve
  • Add apples & boil on low until apples are tender
  • Remove from heat
  • Spoon a tablespoon of apple mixture onto one half of each empanada wrap
  • Fold the other half over & use a fork to seal the open the edges
  • Pro Tip- I seal the edges with a fork on each side
  • Brush each side of the empanadas with oil
  • Sprinkle with a cinnamon/sugar mixture on each side 
  • Cook in the air fryer for 5-8 minutes at 330 degrees 
  • Pro Tip- First cook only one empanada to test for the correct amount of time. I cooked mine for 10 minutes and it made them too crunchy. 
  • Serve alone or with ice cream.
