You can now easily and quickly reheat an apple pie in your air fryer. Not only is this method incredibly convenient, but it also gives you that mouth-wateringly crispy pastry top with minimal effort.

One of the best comfort foods around is a freshly-baked apple pie.
There’s something so comforting and homey about sinking your teeth into pies filled with sweet, freshly picked apples and layers of crunchy pastry!
But what do you do if you have leftover slices or an entire pie that needs reheating?
We would traditionally blast it in the oven for a few minutes before indulging again.
But did you know there’s another equally delicious way to reheat apple pie?
With an air fryer!
How to reheat apple pie in air fryer
Reheating apple pie in an air fryer is a great way to get that freshly-baked taste with much less time and effort.
By preheating your air fryer to 350°F, you’ll be able to capture the oven’s warmth without having to leave it on for hours.
Place the apple pie slice in the air fryer basket, then heat for 5 to 6 minutes until it’s hot and crispy.
You can even add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg if desired!
With an air fryer, you can enjoy a warm, delicious slice of apple pie in no time – ideal as an afternoon treat or a quick dessert after dinner.
How to reheat apple pie if you don’t have an air fryer
Reheating apple pie without an air fryer is much easier than you think.
Reheating apple pie in the oven
All you need is a standard oven, some aluminum foil, and a few minutes to bring your delicious delight back to its former glory.
Preheat your oven to 350°F and carefully wrap the pie in aluminum foil, so it’s fully sealed.
Place the wrapped apple pie on a baking sheet and let it heat up in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
The time will vary depending on the size of the pie, so make sure to do a quick check after 15 minutes.
Before long, your apple pie will be warm and ready to enjoy!
How to reheat apple pie in the microwave
Reheating apple pie in the microwave is a great way to enjoy your favorite dessert, especially if you only want to reheat one slice.
All you need is a few minutes and a microwave oven.
Place the pie on a microwave-safe plate, set the power level to half, and heat for 45 seconds.
Then turn over the plate and microwave again for an additional 45 seconds.
Keep microwaving until your apple pie has reached your desired temperature.
When you’re done, let your fresh-tasting apple pie cool before serving so everyone can enjoy it!
It’s best not to cover the apple pie slice with plastic wrap to avoid a soggy crust.
The moisture trapped by the wrap can make for a limp and unappealing pie crust – reheat your pie without wrapping it for a crispy and delicious result!
