Ingredients for Air Fryer Mini Cinnamon Rolls

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • One 8-ounce can refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions for Air Fryer Mini Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Spray a silicone egg bites mold or small (12-cup) mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Spread the crescent dough out on a lightly floured surface. Press the perforations to seal and roll it out into an 8-by-12-inch rectangle. Spread 3 tablespoons of butter over the dough. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cinnamon and the brown sugar. With the short end facing you, cut the dough horizontally into 12 strips, each 1 inch wide. Roll each strip up to form a spiral. Place the rolls spiral side up in the prepared pan. If using a silicone egg bites mold you may need to work in batches.
  3. Place the pan or silicone mold in a 6-quart air fryer. Cook at 325 degrees F until deeply golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the icing. Microwave the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a microwave-safe cup until melted, about 15 seconds. Combine the confectioners’ sugar, milk, vanilla and remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Whisk in the melted butter until smooth. Set aside.
  5. Allow the cinnamon rolls to cool for 3 minutes before removing them from the pan. Drizzle the frosting over the warm rolls and serve.
