An amazing and easy way to make homemade donuts in the air fryer in less than 10 minutes. These are a family favorite and taste amazing! —ForkToSpoon

What You'll Need
  • 1 packet Puff Pastry
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Start by laying out the defrosted puff pastry on a flat surface.
  2. Then use your biscuit cutter and cut out the larger circle.
  3. Continue to cut out all of the circles until you run out of puff pastry.
  4. Then use the smaller biscuit cutter and cut the middle out. Repeat until all the dough is used up.
  5. As you cut them out, place them on a greased air fryer basket or greased air fryer tray.
  6. Then crack the egg, and place it into a small bowl. Use a fork to beat the egg.
  7. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg wash over the puff pastry.
  8. Place the air fryer basket or tray into the air fryer and set the temperature to 330 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  9. In one bowl, add the melted butter, and in another both mix the sugar and ground cinnamon.
  10. Then dip the donuts into melted butter and then into the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  11. Plate, serve, and enjoy!

I had leftover puff pastry from making beef and beet wellingtons for New Years. And just got a new air fryer, so this was a win!
