You only need 4 ingredients to make these cinnamon sugar Air Fryer Donuts ! So easy to make, you’re kids can make them themselves!



  • 1 (16.3 ounce) can Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits
  • 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick) melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Place the biscuits on a cutting board. Using a small round biscuit cutter, cut holes in the center of each biscuit to resemble a donut. If you don’t have a biscuit cutter you can use a knife or a small round cookie cutter.
  2. Preheat your air fryer to 350 (if needed) and spray the basket or racks with non-stick cooking spray. Place the biscuits in a single layer, not touching in the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes until golden brown. If your air fryer uses racks, you don’t have to turn them. If your air fryer uses the traditional basket, then turn them after 2 1/2 minutes and continue cooking another 2 1/2 -3 minutes until golden brown.
  3. Mix the sugar together with the cinnamon in a bowl. Dip the donuts into the melted butter, letting the excess drip off and then roll on both sides in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Repeat with the remaining donuts.
  4. Serve immediately.
