Air Fried Oreos with Crescent Rolls

Deep-fried Oreos are a personal favorite dessert of mine at the fair. They’re fluffy, creamy, and chocolatey.

I’ve always considered them a delicacy because they were fried until I figured out how to make Air Fried Oreos.

How to Make Air Fried Oreos

I love using these with flaky layers crescent rolls. I personally used the butter variety, but you can use the original kind to avoid butter.

Spread out the crescent roll dough onto a flat surface, such as a cutting board or counter.

Lightly use your finger to press down on all the perforated lines. This allows the dough to become one piece.

Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the crescent roll sheet into 8 even squares. I like to cut the dough in half both ways then cut them into quarters each way from there.

Place one Oreo cookie in the center of each crescent roll dough square and roll all four corners inward on top of the Oreo.

Bunch the rest of the crescent roll over the Oreo, making sure it covers the entire sandwich cookie.

Do not stretch it too thin or it will break causing the Oreo to break through the dough.

How to Cook the Air Fryer Oreos

Preheat air fryer to 320 degrees for 2-3 minutes.

I like to preheat my air fryer when finishing up the last 3-4 Oreo cookies so you can put them all inside the air fryer as soon as you’ve finished wrapping them in the dough.

Place the Air Fried Oreos in the air fryer in a single layer leaving a small space between each one.

Do not stack or let them touch or they will stick together when cooked and cause the dough to cook unevenly.

If they all do not fit in your air fryer at the same time, you will need to cook in batches.

Cook the Air Fried Oreos at 320 degrees for 5-6 minutes until golden brown on the outside.

Carefully remove the Oreos from the air fryer and immediately dust with powdered sugar if desired.

Let cool for two minutes and enjoy!

These are almost as addictive as my Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings. It’s amazing how crispy they can get (and how easy they are to make).

Do I Need to Use Oil in This Recipe?

This air fryer recipe contains no oil. That means you don’t need to spray any oil on top of the crescent rolls to make this recipe.

Now, if your air fryer tends to stick on the bottom, I do recommend spraying the basket quickly with oil using an EVO oil sprayer. Do not use PAM spray as it can ruin your air fryer.

Are These Air Fried Oreos Vegan?

Pillsbury Original Crescents rolls are completely vegan.

Oreos on the other hand, are not completely vegan. Looking at package ingredients, they show all vegan ingredients, but there is more behind the scenes.

They cross-contaminate with milk making them not suitable for vegans. They are still completely vegetarian.

  1. Searched for this recipe after Dax Shepard and Monica Padman mentioned them on their show. Kristen Bell makes them and they love them! WIll be trying soon!

    • That’s so cool they mentioned Air Fried Oreos on the show. I will have to take a look at that episode because I love them as a couple. These are so delicious that I eat a good half of them within 5 minutes of them coming out of the air fryer each time. lol.

    • We haven’t had pillsbury products in the UK for years . I will look to see if there is an equivalent as they sound so tasty .

    • Oh, just wait until they try them. They are just as good as they look! We make several batches each time.

    • I had to laugh when Monica and Dax talked about these on Armchair Expert. Dax always talks about being on a paleo diet, I don’t think one could get any further away from a paleo diet while devouring these. Ha ha! About to make them, I’m so glad they talked about them.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Kelli! They are my all-time favorite air fryer dessert.

  2. 5 stars
    I’m not really an Oreo fan. That being said, these were amazing and gone in a flash once I set them on the table in a house full of teenagers.

  3. Delicious! I only have a wire rack in mine so the bottoms wanted to stick when done, even with cooking spray on it. But the family loved them!

    • I bought parchment “air fryer liners” (circular but there are squares, also) and they work great for many items. I have an Instant Pot/Air Fryer combo appliance (2 lids), and often put a disposable pie plate or aluminum carryout pan with parchment circle on bottom and then add the items, or put the items on the parchment circle right in the basket.

    • Yes, you are going to LOVE these, Katy! My mom and sister are making them again as we speak because they were such a hit the last time I saw them.

  4. I am going to try these with mini oreo s AND some chocolate dipping sauce!! These would be AMAZING with double stuff oreo cookies!

    • Yum! I love drizzling some chocolate sauce on top of them, so I can already tell you they will be delicious, Stephanie! Enjoy!

    • Hi Tammy, I have never used that kind before, but the chocolate icing should not leak through the crescent roll. Just make sure you fully wrap the Oreo without any gaps.

  5. I just made these, my daughter is vegan (she eats Oreos, we don’t stress about the “may contain”) and I only had the flaky rolls (not biscuits) and I squashed the circles down and totherwise did exactly as you did and they’re PERFECT! Thank you!
    (AND it never occured to me a lot of the Pillsbury products were vegan, game changer!)

    • Yes! As long as they’re not honey or butter flavored, they are vegan. That was news to me as well. So glad that worked for you and I am glad you and your daughter enjoyed them!

  6. Tried this receipe and it was great. Has anyone attempted to freeze these after being made and any suggestions for unthawing/reheating them.

    • Hi Debbie, I’m so glad you loved them! I have not tried to freeze and thaw them. If you do try it, let us know how they turn out!
