Homemade Air Fryer Nutella Hand Pies

Hand pies are great, aren’t they? They’re portable food that makes a great snack. Another great thing about hand pies is that you can make so many different kinds.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a sweet hand pie filled with Nutella. These Nutella hand pies are super easy to make, calling for ingredients you may already have on hand, or can easily get at your local grocery store. Cooking these hand pies in your air fryer means less cooking and waiting time for you, and less heat in your house as compared to baking in the oven.

These bite-sized treats are the perfect size for an individual portion. They pair well with cold beverages like milk as well as hot beverages like coffee. A platter of these Nutella hand pies will bring a smile to anyone’s face, whether it be kids doing homework or adults paying bills. Here’s how to make them.

Equipment Needed


  • 1 premade pie crust
  • 1 jar Nutella 
  • 1 tube vanilla icing
  • chocolate sprinkles 
  • 1 egg

Roll out the pie crust on a cutting board.

Cut the pie crust into 3 inch rectangles.

Place a teaspoon of Nutella in the center of half of the rectangles.

Remove the pastries from the air fryer and place onto a cooling rack.

Cover in icing as liberally as you like.

Put sprinkles on as liberally as you like.

Pop tarts are the sort of thing I feel like I should not like but oh they are so good! I don’t have an air fryer but they seem so versatile that maybe I should consider getting one x

These look amazing and so easy to make – a fab summer holiday activity! I’ve heard so many good things about air fryers, I really need to look into them properly and invest, sounds like they make life so much easier! Sim

This is so weird, my partner really wants me to get a fryer and for health reasons I say no. Since I said okay lets get a air fryer I keep seeing new airfryer recipes everywhere. This would be a fun one for the kids too, experimenting with different fillings, I don’t think they have seen a pop tart before

This is the perfect snack to make for the kids during the school holidays, super easy and looks amazingly delicious as well. I do have an air fryer so looking forward to try making this

These look like a fab sweet treat. I never knew you could make something like this in an air fryer. I so want to get one

My kids absolutely adore pop tarts so I might just have to give these a try – we’ve always got Nutella in the house.

I am going to have to try these when my fiance goes away in September as he’s not a nutella fan but I blooming love it x

These look delicious, my kids love Nutella and would happily demolish these if I made them

It’s amazing how many things you can make with an airfryer. This sounds yummy. We make something with puff pastry and Nutella and pop it in the oven.

Jenny July 28, 2020 - 8:54 pm

I haven’t heard of a hand pie before but these sound like something my kids would really enjoy.

Michelle Twin Mum July 30, 2020 - 10:32 am
