  • Air Fryer


  • 1 can Ready Made Cinnamon Rolls
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • Flour a surface and dump out the cinnamon rolls.
  • Knead them together, turning them inside out over and over. Mold them into a thick
    cylinder. You’ll need to keep adding flour as you knead them as they get messy and
  • Using a sharp knife, cut about ½-inch slices (a little less) until you’ve sliced the entire
    roll. If need be, gently stretch them into circles if the knife flattened them.
  • Using a ½-inch round cookie cutter, cut out the center of each circle.
  • Place a couple in the air fryer at a time and bake at 400 degrees for 4-5 minutes.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the cinnamon and powdered sugar. Mix well.
  • Pull the donuts straight from the air fryer and completely coat them in the powdered
    sugar mixture. Place them on a piece of wax paper.
  • Using the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls, heat it for a few seconds in the
    microwave, and use a spoon to drizzle the icing across each donut.
  • Enjoy right away!
