How To Make Air Fryer Oreo Stuffed Beignets
The simplest air fryer dessert ever is Oreos encased in crescent roll dough and dusted with powdered sugar. With fantastic Oreo flavor, this simple treat bakes up golden brown in the air fryer and melts in your mouth.
Crescents roll dough
To start, spread the crescent roll dough over a foil or parchment paper so it doesn’t stick to countertop. You can also use cutting board to spread the dough.
Use your finger to press down the dough lightly on all the perforated lines. Then cut the sheet into 8 even squares with a pizza cutter or knife. With eight squares of dough, you can use use eight Oreo cookies.
Place each Oreo cookie in the center of dough square. Then slightly pull the dough from corners and cover the Oreo cookie from top. Use your thumbs to press the dough or use a fork to crimp around all edges and seal in the Oreo cookie. Brush the cookies with butter and set aside.
Preheat the air fryer at 400 F. Cook for 6–7 minutes at 350°F until golden brown.
Tips & Notes
1- As a tip on how to perfectly close the Oreo in dough; Place the Oreo in the center of the dough, then start pulling the dough lightly from corners and gather the dough on top side surrounding the Oreo and close the dough by pressing it with fingers on the open top.
2- Sometimes the dough sticks to the bottom of the air fryer’s basket so use forks or tongs to take them out.
3- You can either use butter to brush the cookies or use butter variety of Crescent dough as alternate.
4- For best taste, serve while hot.
What is the recommended cooking time and temperature for Air Fryer Oreo Stuffed Beignets?
The precise time and temperature may vary depending on your air fryer performance but for this recipe, a temperature of 350 F and cooking time of 6 minutes works best for me. And I would recommend using a moderate temperature for baking any items in the air fryer as it results in more even cooking.
Can you use different types of cookies for making this recipe?
Honestly, I haven’t checked this recipe with any other cookies apart from Oreo. But I am planning to try chocolate chip cookies instead of Oreos cookies. Please let me know in the comments section if anyone has tested and how are the results.
Are these Oreo beignets vegan?
Pillsbury Original Crescents rolls are completely vegan. But Oreos on other hand are not completely vegan as the chocolate coating contains dairy.
In the case of Oreos, they are not completely vegan but still an acceptable option to consider as most of its ingredients are vegan.
This means that while Oreos may still be completely vegetarian-friendly, it is not appropriate for those who follow a plant-based diet.
Can you use oil for this recipe?
No, you don’t need for oil for this recipe. Simply coat the cookies with melted butter, it will make the cookies soft and moist and will prevent them from sticking to the bottom of basket.
As an alternate you can use EVO Oil Sprayer as this will help reduce sticking. Avoid using PAM sprays as they can reduce life of air fryer basket.
Can you reheat air fryer Oreo stuffed beignets ?
Yes, you can reheat Oreo stuffed beignets. You can use an air fryer, oven, or microwave to reheat them. But I would recommend using an air fryer and oven only.
Air Fryer– Put them in the air fryer basket and reheat at 320 F for 2 minutes.
