How Do Frozen Toaster Strudels Taste in the Air Fryer?
Even better than I remember them tasting as a kid! The air fryer cooking method works so well to get the light, flaky texture outside of the pastry.
It also heats the gooey fruit-filling on the inside beautifully.
Seriously, every bite is divine. And once you add the icing drizzle, you won’t be able to resist this breakfast treat!
Recipe Tips for Toaster Strudel in the Air Fryer
- Keep in mind that the cooking time might vary slightly based on the size and brand of your air fryer. Check on the toaster strudels in the air fryer around the 5 minute mark and continue cooking until they’re heated all the way through.
- Don’t overcrowd the basket. Leave a little room between each toaster strudel.
- There’s no need to grease your air fryer, and the oil in the pastry will keep it from sticking.
- Make sure to apply the drizzle after the toaster strudels have finished air frying. If you ice them before cooking, the heat from the air fryer will cause the icing to melt off.

How Long to Cook a Toaster Strudel in the Air Fryer
The ideal cooking time is going to depend on your size and brand of an air fryer. I find that 6 minutes is perfect, but you may need to cook yours for a minute less or more.
You want to ensure the filling is hot and the pastry is crispy.
Also, remember that these instructions are for frozen Pillsbury toaster strudels, although they should work for any frozen brand.
If you make homemade toaster strudels, those will require a different cooking time and temperature.
Can I Reheat Them?
I recommend only making as many as you need. Otherwise, the icing will melt off when you try reheating toaster strudels in the air fryer.
If you do find yourself with extras, that’s okay! Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and when you’re ready to eat them, reheat them at 320 degrees F for a few minutes.
