1. Pumpkin Pie

TikTok user @takeonefortheroad shows how to make some mini pumpkin pies in an air fryer. They're the perfect size for smaller fryers! It's super simple — all you have to do is follow the classic pumpkin pie recipe, then toss the pies in the air fryer. For @takeonefortheroad's recipe, the pies just need to go in for eight minutes. Seriously, air fryer pumpkin pie could not be easier.

2. Pumpkin Pie Bites

For a slightly different take, you can make these pumpkin pie bites by TikTok user Sophia Wasu (@aquickspoonful). Her recipe calls for pumpkin, instant pudding, Cool Whip, and spices all mixed together, then stuffed into a wonton wrapper. Air fry, add a little pizzazz with cinnamon sugar and caramel, and you've got a crispy fall treat!
