Almost Effortless Donuts in the Air Fryer Ingredients:

  • 1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 can large refrigerator biscuits
  • 1-inch biscuit or cookie cutter

Almost Effortless Donuts in the Air Fryer Directions:

  • Preheat Air Fryer to 360-degrees
  • Place sugar in a small shallow dish
  • Place butter in another small, shallow dish
  • Remove dough from packaging and separate into biscuits.
  • Flatten each biscuit slightly with your palm. Using the biscuit cutter, cut out circles from the centers of the dough. Place donuts and holes on a piece of parchment paper, keeping them separate.
  • Working with one donut at a time, dip in butter, coating all sides, then dredge in sugar, gently shaking off excess. Place 2 to 3 donuts in air fryer basket, leaving 1-inch space in between.
  • Air-fry for 9 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for at least 3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining donuts.
