Easy air fryer doughnuts that are made from refrigerated cookies! Only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make, these delicious doughnuts will be your new favorite Air Fryer recipe!
1 can of Jumbo Flaky Cookies like Pillsbury Grands
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons of melted butter
Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees. To do this, simply turn your air fryer on at 330 degrees and let it run for about 3-5 minutes.
In a medium bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
Open the can of flaky cookies and cut the center of each one with a 1-inch round cutter. Lightly coat the fryer basket with coconut oil spray (you can also use olive oil spray). Do not use a non-stick spray like Pam (those sprays could be harmful to your air fryer).
Put the doughnuts (not the holes), in your air fryer. Bake for 5 minutes at 360 degrees. While the doughnuts are cooking, melt the butter.
Using a silicone brush, cover the baked donuts with the melted butter. Then cover the doughnuts with the sugar-cinnamon mixture by dipping and rolling. Use a spoon to cover the top as well. Gently shake off excess cinnamon sugar. Serve the doughnuts hot.
When the “holes” are fried in the air, set the timer to 3 minutes and repeat the process of dipping in butter and then adding the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
