Apple Empanadas


5-6 Apples
1/3 cup Granulated sugar
2 tbsp Brown sugar
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp Cornstarch
1/4 cup Water
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
Pastry dough
4 tbsp Butter


  1. Peel and slice apples into small chunks and place in pot. In a separate bowl, combine sugars, cinnamon, and cornstarch and mix well.
  2. Sprinkle the mixed dry ingredients over apples in pot, and add water, vanilla extract, 2 tbsp of butter and mix well.
  3. Cover pot and turn heat to high until it starts to boil. Once it begins to boil turn heat down. Simmer until apples are tender and mixture begins to thicken.
  4. Remove pot from heat and let it cool down. Once the mixture has cooled down to room temperature, lay the pastry dough flat and fill with apple mixture. Moisten the edges with water to seal and press the edges with a fork to close the pockets.
  5. Place empanadas in the air fryer basket and fry at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Do not over fill basket when cooking. Remove when golden.
