We are deep into winter and all I want to do is eat ALL THE THINGS. So when I saw those super easy air fryer oreos on TikTok and I had oreos in the pantry, it was a done deal.

Air fryer oreos are a little trip to the state fair, in the middle of winter. We could all use a bit of sweet, melty, gooey deliciousness, am I right? Crisp and fluffy deep fried crescent roll outsides with melty oreo frosting and chocolate cookies…I am dead. Don’t sleep on dusting them with powdered sugar for those donut vibes. This is barely a recipe but I thought I would share it because deep fried oreos, but make it air fryer!

Deep fried oreos vs air fryer oreos

Deep fried oreos are classic fair food: oreos dipped in donut batter and deep fried in hot oil so they’re crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Air fryer oreos are wrapped in crescent roll dough then air fried so they’re crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Same, but different!

  • Deep fried oreos: batter, hot oil, kind of an ordeal, at least 30 minutes, lots of clean up
  • Air fryer oreos: crescent rolls, super easy barely an inconvenience, 10 minutes max, minimal clean up.

How to make air fryer oreos

  1. Pop open your roll of crescent dough and lightly roll it together so it forms one sheet, pinching the perforated parts together, if needed. Cut the dough into 8 pieces.
  2. Lay the oreos onto each piece of dough, then wrap the oreos, pinching and tucking in the corners. Preheat the air fryer while you’re wrapping.
  3. Air fry for 6-7 minutes or until golden. Be sure to line the air fryer basket with foil or parchment paper.
  4. Dust with powdered sugar and dream about summer.

Deep fried oreos ingredients

All you need are oreos and a tube of crescent roll dough. Oh, and powdered sugar because it adds donut vibes and makes everything pretty.

Pancake batter vs biscuit dough

There are air fryer oreo recipes with pancake batter out there but these are air fryer oreos without pancake mix because it’s a heck of a lot messier with pancake batter. There’s dipping and dripping and trust me, crescent rolls are superior.

Do I need to preheat my air fryer?

Most of the time I say that you don’t need to, but we did some A/B testing and preheating the air fryer made it so much better. Preheat your air fryer for 2-3 minutes at 320°F.

Which air fryer do you have?

If you’re wondering which air-fryer we have, it’s this one. I don’t know if it’s the best on the market because it’s the only one we’ve used, but it works great. It’s quiet and easy to clean and really big (which is good because you can put a lot of food in it and bad because it takes up a lot of room in our place).

What if I don’t have an air fryer?

You can bake these guys on a parchment paper lined baking sheet in a preheated oven at 425°F for 7-8 minutes, or until golden.

Make it rain icing sugar

Pro tip, if you’re going to dust with icing sugar, don’t just use a spoon to sprinkle it on. Using sieve will make your powdered sugar as pretty as untouched snow. And you don’t have a sieve, you can use a tea strainer!
