What Are The Best Apples To Use

To be honest any baking apple will work great. Baking apples hold up better when cooked. This is key so you don’t lose texture or have the Apple create too much juice. 

Honey crisp, green apples, Cortland, Braeburn, pink lady, gala, are all great options. Feel free to pick whatever Apple you prefer.

Tips for Air Frying Apple Fries

  • Make sure you air fry your apples in a single layer. Don’t overlap as that will make pieces not cook upright and become soggy or undercooked. 
  • All air fryers heat slightly differently. So use the cooking time as a gauge and check on the fries periodically. 
  • Also if you want to make a lot to serve a crowd, just batch cook. Turn the oven on low and place cooked Apple fries in a single layer and place in the oven to stay warm.

When ready to eat you can eat cold, warm up in the microwave or even back in the air fryer. 

This is an easy Air Fryer dessert that kids and adults can enjoy. Best of all you can whip it together in minutes for a great way to incorporate fruit into a fun new dessert.

  1. I’m an air fryer newbie. My air fryer is the square, toaster oven type machine. Do I do anything differently? I always worry about using the basket and it dripping on the heating elements. Should I do them on the solid sheet pan?
