Servings 5


  • air fryer
  • fork
  • knife
  • basting brush


  • 1 package pre-made pie crust
  • strawberry jelly
  • vanilla frosting
  • 1 egg
  • sprinkles


  • Roll out the pie crust and cut out 3 inch rectangles. (I was able to get 5 rectangles out of each piece of crust dough.)
    Pastry Dough Cut in Rectangles
  • Drop a heaping teaspoon of jelly in the center of half of the rectangles.
    Filling Pastry Dough with Jam
  • Place a rectangle on top of each jelly-topped rectangle and press the edges together with a fork.
    Fork Marks on Pastry Dough
  • Use a basting brush to each wash each rectangle.
    Egg Wash on Pastry Dough
  • Place in air fryer and cook for 5-8 minutes at 375 F. Note: these cook up really fast, so after about 5 minutes, check out them each minute to make sure they don't burn. They are finished cooking when the pie crust has started to brown.
  • Remove from air fryer and top with a layer of frosting and sprinkles.
