ABout that Cherry Pie Filling

Now OBVIOUSLY you CAN use ANY kind of pie filling you like. I can’t recommend this Bing Cherry Pie Filling ENOUGH! It’s so refreshing and not overly sweet!

BUT at the same time, you can ALSO use any FLAVOR of pie filling as well. Canned or homemade either will work! And be sure to buy the smallest can possible, you only need a little for this recipe.

ALSO, try jam in these! A very thick jam will make the perfect filling for homemade pop tarts. Again any flavor works, what’s your favorite? I think Rhubarb would be amazing!

What do I need to Make Air Fryer Pop Tarts?

  • An Air Fryer I use and love the Cosori 5.8
  • Pre-Made Pie Crust
  • 1 Egg
  • Cherry Pie Filling–THE SMALLEST CAN YOU CAN FIND OR jam works too!
  • Vanilla OR Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Valentine’s Day Sprinkles OR any other sprinkles you like!
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Pastry Brush
  • heart shaped cookie cutter, the bigger the heart the less pop-tarts you’ll have and the longer they cook!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes

  • 2 pre-made pie crusts
  • 3/4 cup cherry pie filling OR jam
  • 1 egg yolk
  • tub of vanilla or cream cheese frosting

  1. gently unroll the pie crusts, use a rolling pin to make them about an inch bigger overall
  2. use a cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes
  3. lay half of them on a baking sheet
  4. drop about 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling on the hearts
  5. lay another heart on top and use a fork to crimp around the edges
  6. chill the hearts while you preheat the air fryer at 380 for 5-8 minutes
  7. beat the egg yolk with a fork and brush the top heart with beaten egg
  8. lay several hearts in the basket of the preheated air fryer
  9. air fry on 380 for 5-8 minutes or until brown
  10. remove carefully and lay on a cooling rack
  11. repeat baking with remaining hearts
  12. cool all completely
  13. then spread with frosting and top with sprinkles


These pop tarts can be made any size you like. So you can make 10 smaller hearts or less big hearts it is up to you. The bigger the hearts the longer the bake time so be aware that smaller hearts 2-3 inches cook up in 5 minutes while bigger hearts cook up in 7-8 minutes.
