Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls

Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls

If homemade cinnamon rolls seem like too much work morning then we've found you the perfect solution. No need to wait on dough to rise with these easy air fryer cinnamon rolls. We used crescent dough to make everything as simple as possible without losing any flavor! 


For The Rolls 

  • 2 tbsp. melted butter, plus more for brushing
  • 1/3 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Kosher salt
  • All-purpose flour, for surface
  • 1 (8-oz.) tube refrigerated Crescent rolls

 For The Glaze

  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. whole milk, plus more if needed



Step 1

Make rolls: Line bottom of air fryer with parchment paper and brush with butter. In a medium bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a large pinch of salt until smooth and fluffy.

Step 2

On a lightly floured surface, roll out crescent rolls in one piece. Pinch seams together and fold in half. Roll into a 9"-x-7" rectangle. Spread butter mixture over dough, leaving 1/4-inch border. Starting at a long edge, roll up dough like a jelly roll, then cut crosswise into 6 pieces.

Step 3

Arrange pieces in prepared air fryer, cut-side up, spaced evenly.

Step 4

Set air fryer to 350°, and cook until golden and cooked through, about 10 minutes. 

Step 5

Make the glaze: In a medium bowl, Whisk cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk together. Add more milk by the teaspoonful, if necessary, to thin glaze. 

Step 6

Spread glaze over warm cinnamon rolls and serve.
