If you’ve been around here long enough, then you know I love my puff pastry! It is the perfect way to raise the bar on anything sweet or savory recipe that you make, but keeps it low key and not complicated!
When I made these pumpkin pie turnovers many moons ago, they are easily my number one recipe especially around the holidays. Now that I am all crazy about my air fryer I decided to whip up a batch and go to work and testing them over and over until they were just perfect!
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER PUMPKIN TURNOVER
- Puff pastry: The star of this show! When cooked up, it’s light and buttery!
- Pumpkin puree: The other star of this show. The key ingredient to the filling. Not to be confused with pumpkin pie mix.
- Spices: We use a wonderful blend of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. The traditional flavors included in pumpkin pie.
- Sugar: A must to make this just slightly sweet.
- Vanilla: Helps enhances all of the flavors.
- Egg wash: This gives the pastry a nice golden color.
- Glaze: A mixture of powdered sugar and milk.
- You will defrost your puff pastry for at least 30 minutes.
- While that is defrosting add your spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger to a bowl with the pumpkin, sugar, and vanilla.
- Next, preheat the air fryer for 3 minutes at 400 degrees. Coat with basket or try with nonstick cooking spray. (DON’T SKIP or your pastry will stick.)
- Roll out the pastry and cut each sheet into 4 squares. You will have 8 total.
- Place 1-2 tablespoons of the pumpkin mixture on each square.
- Fold each sheet in half diagonally, to create a triangular turnover. Press the edges with a fork to seal. Poke holes in the tops of each turnover.
- Brush each with egg wash.
- Place in basket or on the tray. (If using a try, place on lower rack.)
- Air fry for 8-10 minutes on 400 degrees F. until golden brown. Flip and air fry for 2 additional minutes to allow the bottom to get golden brown.
- Remove and cool for 3-5 minutes.
- For the drizzle, mix powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon milk at a time to keep a nice thick consistency.
- Drizzle over air fryer pumpkin turnovers. Serve and ENJOY!
NOTES & STORAGE:
NOTES: Because you will be making these in multiple batches they will cook faster with each additional batch. So you will need to adjust the cook time on the extra batches.
STORAGE: Store air fryer pumpkin turnovers in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Freeze cooked turnovers for up to 2 months.
