This sensational starter is made quickly and easily in the Air Fryer, and the warm cheese and sweet apples will make you swoon!  Perfect for holiday gatherings or as a simple starter before the big Thanksgiving feast, it’s also my go-to when unexpected guests drop in.

Equipment: Kalorik Air Fryer Oven and/or Kalorik MAXX Air Fryer Oven


8-ounce whole round Brie cheese
2 Honeycrisp apples, cored and sliced into rounds
4 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons white wine
6 sprigs fresh thyme
Toasted walnuts
Salt & freshly ground pepper


1. Place apple slices in a small baking dish that fits in your Air Fryer basket. Pour the wine and maple syrup over the apple slices, add 4 thyme sprigs and a pinch of salt and toss to coat. 

2. Cook the apples in your Kalorik MAXX Air Fryer at 400ºF for 8 minutes, stir, then cook for 5 minutes more or until the apples are caramelized and tender.

3. Remove the apples from the Kalorik Air Fryer Oven and place a square of parchment paper in the Air Fryer basket. Place the whole Brie cheese on the parchment paper and air fry at 350ºF for 4 minutes, to soften the cheese.

4. To serve, place the apples on a serving platter, then place the warm Brie on top of the apples. Pour any juices from the pan over the apples. Garnish with toasted walnuts and fresh thyme leaves.

Chef’s Tip: Use apricots during the spring months, plums during the summer, pears in fall and apples for the cold winter season~
