Servings: 8


  • 4 apples, granny smith
  • 3 apricots 
  • 1 Tbsp. almond paste
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Cup caramel sauce
  • 2 Sheets puff pastry dough
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 Tsp. cinnamon, divided 


  • Preheat the air fryer to 325 degrees F. 
  • Lightly flour a wooden cutting board. Unroll pastry dough sheets. Cut each sheet into 4 equal sections. Roll each section into a ball, then place back onto the cutting board. One by one use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a thin flat circle about 6” in diameter.  
  • Peel and core the apples. Cut into small pieces. Repeat with apricots. 
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add butter, almond paste, and brown sugar to the pan. Break apart the almond paste as the butter melts and whisk to combine. Cook for 2 minutes, then add 1 Tsp. cinnamon and caramel sauce. Whisk until smooth and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add apples and apricots to a large mixing bowl. Stir in the buttered caramel until thoroughly coated.  
  • Place a scoop of apple mixture into the center of each dough round. Fold the pastry up and over the center to cover. Pinch seams to seal.  
  • Arrange dumplings in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook for 22 minutes.  
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
