Air-Fryer Berry Hand Pies


These flaky hand pies are packed with a juicy raspberry-blackberry filling. A light sprinkle of sugar on top of these pies provides a sweet crunch. Once you make this recipe, pair other filling ideas like pear-cranberry, peach or apple with the dough for a fun twist (see Tip). This recipe is an air-fryer variation of these Mixed Berry Hand Pies by Katie Webster.

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

  • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar plus 1/3 cup, divided

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small chunks

  • 9 tablespoons ice water

  • 1 ½ cups raspberries

  • 1 ½ cups blueberries

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten with 2 tablespoons water


  1. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, 1 tablespoon sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Cut butter into the mixture using a pastry blender or your fingertips, leaving some pea-sized chunks remaining. Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork to combine, just until the mixture becomes shaggy and starts to come together. Empty the dough onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Using the plastic wrap, press the dough into a disk. Wrap completely and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes and up to 3 days.

  2. Divide the dough into 2 portions. Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Roll each portion into a 13½-by-9-inch rectangle, about ⅛-inch thick. Cut each rectangle into 6 (4½-by-3-inch) rectangles.

  3. Combine raspberries, blueberries, cornstarch and ⅓ cup sugar in a medium bowl. Spoon 2 tablespoons filling onto half of each dough rectangle, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges; do not overfill.

  4. Brush egg mixture along the edge of half of each square. Fold the dough in half to cover the filling; crimp edges to seal. Brush tops with the egg mixture; sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar. Cut 3 small vent holes on top of each pie. Working in batches as necessary, arrange the pies in a single layer in the basket of an air fryer; cook at 350°F until golden, 12 to 14 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
