AIR FRYER PUMPKIN SPICE CREAM CHEESE BITES

I’m having a little too much fun making little crescent roll desserts in my air fryer. You can pretty much wrap up anything in crescent roll dough and pop it into the air fryer to cook. Seriously, try wrapping up a Double Stuf Oreo cookie in some crescent roll dough, cook it in the air fryer, then tell me it isn’t absolutely heavenly!

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS DESSERT IN AN AIR FRYER:

  • The main tip for cooking/baking in an air fryer is to make sure there is space between the food you are cooking. If there isn’t proper air flow around the food, it’s going to cook unevenly. The air needs to flow around all sides of the food.
  • If you can find the crescent roll dough sheets instead of the individual crescent rolls then definitely use that. It’ll make it easier to work with for this recipe.
  • This is a fun dessert to play around with. It’s a great sweet treat anytime of year. Just skip the pumpkin spice if you prefer and just roll the fried dough balls in cinnamon and sugar.
