Tips for making cinnamon rolls in the air fryer

  • Not all air fryers are made the same. Some require you to preheat the machine prior to cooking in it, like this Crux air fryer.  
  • The cream cheese frosting can be stored in an airtight freezer-friendly container for up to a month.
  • Spread the rolls apart for even cooking and also to allow the bread to spread/expand.
  • Spraying the air fryer is not necessary as the rolls will not stick to the bottom of the basket.
  • Depending on the air fryer you have, the temperature and cooking time may vary. I recommend working in 2-minute increments to avoid burning or overcooking the cinnamon rolls.
  • When making the cream cheese frosting, be sure to use a block of cream cheese, not cream cheese spread.
