Using the air fryer to bake a pie has its perks.

  • No need to heat up your oven! Saves energy and keeps your kitchen cool!
  • No oven preheat = time saved
  • Let’s you double up if you’ve got something else in your oven.

What You’ll Need

Ingredients for making pumpkin pie on a marble counter. There is a bowl of cracked eggs, a cup of maple syrup, a cup of cocunut milk, spices, a can of pumpkin and a pre-made pie shell.
  • Pumpkin Puree – One 15 oz. can is perfect for this recipe. I find that pumpkin puree goes on sale in the fall at my grocery store.
  • Full Fat Coconut Milk – Using coconut milk in pumpkin pie is not necessarily traditional, but you have to try it. Full-fat coconut milk from a can make this pie so super creamy and delicious.
  • Eggs – Mixing eggs with the pumpkin and milk creates a custard that allows the pie to set up firmly.
  • Allspice – A long time ago, I used to think that allspice was a mixture of spices, but it’s actually its own thing! Allspice is a dried berry that looks like a peppercorn and tastes like a mix of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and pepper.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – This one is actually a spice blend! Pumpkin Spice blend generally includes cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
  • Salt – Salt balances the sweetness of the pie.
  • Maple Syrup – We’re using maple syrup as our sweetener, and love its delicious maple-y taste when added to the pie.
  • Premade Pie Shell – You can purchase a pre-made pie shell from the store, or pre-bake your own pie crust recipe to use for this pumpkin pie.

How to Make It 🎃

Tips and Tricks

  • This pie was baked using an oven-style air fryer. This type is great for things like pie because there is more room to fit the pie pan in.
  • If you want to make pumpkin pie in a basket-style air fryer, just make sure that your pie tin will fit inside the basket before you start. Using a smaller pie tin is a great adjustment, just reduce the cooking time to about 10 minutes.
  • Pre-made pie shells are a game changer for me, and add a ton of convenience to this recipe. Pie crusts can be tricky to make from scratch!
  • If you want to make your own pie crust, you may need to par-bake it before adding the filling. Follow the instructions for your pie crust recipe to know if that’s needed or not.

How to Tell When It’s Done

Pumpkin Pie is a custard pie, so it starts off as a liquid and then as it bakes it becomes solid. Getting it out of the air fryer oven at the right time is key to making sure you don’t have a runny or dried-out pie.

Pie experts would suggest that you check the pie at the end of the baking time to see how the middle of it looks.

Gently shake the pie back and forth. Does the center of the pie wiggle? If it wiggles just a tiny bit, the pie is ready to come out. The center will finish cooking fully as it cools on the counter. If it sort of sloshes around when you shake it, it needs more time.

    This is amazing! I had no idea you could make a pie in an air fryer!! Does it also work with cake? I can’t wait to try it!

    1. Yes, you can do cakes also. Sometimes the fast hot moving air doesn’t make the top of the cake as smooth or gives it a little height on one side, but it still works and tastes delish! The pies seem to come out pretty even!
