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.

  • 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!

    • I am writing as I wanted to print out your recipe for Air Fryer Churro Apple Pie Bombs as it looked like something I would like. Problem is there is no printable page like there is for the rest of the stuff?? Can you email me one?
      Also I have been using silacone cups ETC in my air fryer, does that change the cook temp or time?
      Thank You

    • Hi Bill, if you click on the air fryer churro apple pie bombs, there should be a “jump to recipe” button on the page that comes up and then the option to print. If you’re using silicone cups (like silicone muffin liners) for recipes that don’t require them, it can affect the recipe time. But using a silicone liner or parchment paper will not affect it enough to change anything in the recipe.
