Deliciously Easy: Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls From Pillsbury

1. Gather necessary ingredients

Are you ready to get your air fryer cinnamon roll on? Gather up the necessary ingredients listed above and let’s get this party started! You will need one (1) package of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls with frosting, as well as cooking spray and butter. When it comes to butter, make sure you opt for the real stuff for an unforgettable flavor! Now that you have all the ingredients, let’s get cooking!

2. Preheat Air Fryer

Now it’s time to fire up the air fryer! Be sure to preheat your air fryer to 350°F before you start on the cinnamon rolls. This will get your air fryer nice and hot so that your cinnamon rolls will come out perfectly golden brown and delicious. So get ready to be tantalized by the delicious aroma of freshly-baked cinnamon rolls!

3. Roll up crescent dough, spread the yummy ingredients, and cut into individual pieces

To get started, unroll one can of crescent rolls onto a lightly floured surface. Firmly press the perforations together to seal. Then, use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a large rectangle. Next, spread the softened butter across the dough’s surface, leaving a ½-inch gap at the top. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon, evenly, over the top of the butter, and press down to make sure the ingredients stick to the butter.

Once all of the ingredients are spread out and secure, it’s time to start rolling the crescent dough. To do so, take the bottom edge and start rolling it upwards, pressing down lightly as you go along. Once you’ve reached the top, pinch the edge of the dough together to seal in the ingredients.

Finally, it’s time to cut the dough into individual cinnamon rolls. Slice the log of dough into twelve even pieces, each about 1 inch thick. As you cut, be sure to lightly flour your knife, as the dough can become sticky. Then, place your individual cinnamon rolls on the air fryer parchment paper (if your air fryer suggests that) and gently flatten with your hands.

With your cinnamon rolls now prepped and ready to go, you’re almost done. All that’s left to do is pop them into the air fryer and wait for deliciousness to ensue!

4. Place rolls in Air Fryer

It’s time to get cooking! Start by preheating your air fryer to 340°F. Now, place the cinnamon rolls into the air fryer in a single layer, making sure there is some space between the rolls. Set a timer for seven minutes. Once the timer goes off, take a peek—your cinnamon rolls should be golden and flaky! Take a second to admire your creations, then let them cool for a few minutes before enjoying.

5. Remove rolls from Air Fryer and let cool

It’s time to enjoy the delicious reward of your hard work! After you make sure your cinnamon rolls are cooked– cinnamon rolls should be perfectly golden and crispy. Carfully remove them, and let them cool for a few minutes before devouring. Enjoy!

6. Prepare icing and drizzle over cooled rolls

If you thought the smells coming from your air fryer couldn’t get any better, you were wrong! Now that your air fryer cinnamon rolls are cooled, it’s time to prepare the icing and drizzle it over your masterpieces. All you need to make the icing is 3 Tablespoons melted butter, 3 cup powdered sugar, 2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 3-4 tablespoons of milk. Start by beating the butter on high speed with a hand mixer for 3-5 minutes, or until creamy. Then, in a separate bowl, mix the powdered sugar and vanilla thoroughly. Pour the sugar mixture into the butter and mix until completely incorporated. Finally, add 1 tablespoon of the milk and continue to mix until the icing is smooth. Add additional milk if you desire a thinner consistency. Once your icing is ready, slowly pour it over the cinnamon rolls and spread it evenly. Now sit back and admire your work!
