Things to Know When Making Air Fryer Desserts
- You cannot just take an oven recipe and use it for the air fryer. Most recipes should be lowered by 25 to 50 degrees and account for a faster cook time.
- Wet-battered desserts are not the best for an air fryer. Using something with a little more solid outside will work the best (see air fried Oreos below for an example).
- When cooking something with a softer batter, like cookies, use a parchment paper round. This helps stop the cookies from forming into the holes on the basket or mesh tray.
An air fryer take on deep-fried Oreos without the excess oil.

8 Oreo cookies or other brand sandwich cookies
1 package Pillsbury Crescent Roll (or crescent dough sheet)
powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
- Preheat your air fryer to 320 degrees.
- Spread out crescent dough onto a cutting board or counter.
- Using your finger, press down into each perforated line so it forms one big sheet.
- Cut the dough into eighths.
- Place an Oreo cookie in the center of each of the crescent roll squares and roll each corner up (see visual above in post).
- Bunch up the rest of the crescent roll to make sure it covers the entire Oreo
cookie. Do not stretch the crescent roll too thin or it will break.
- Gently place the Air Fried Oreos inside the air fryer in one even row so they
do not touch. If you have a smaller air fryer, cook in batches.
- Cook Oreos on 320 degrees for 5-6 minutes until golden brown on the outside.
- Carefully remove the Air Fryer Oreos from the air fryer and immediately dust them with powdered sugar if desired.
- Let cool for two minutes, then enjoy!
