AIR FRYER FRIED OREOS-

These mini desserts taste better than the classic deep-fried fair food! All you need for this recipe is Oreos, Pillsbury crescent dough and powdered sugar. The crescent dough becomes crunchy on the outside yet soft and fluffy and the oreo melts in your mouth with every bite!

HOW TO MAKE FRIED OREOS-

Though you can make the batter for fried Oreos and then deep fry them in oil, this way of making Fried Oreos is so much simpler but you’d never know the difference.

  • Unwrap the Pillsbury crescent dough and cut out the pre-cut triangles. TIP: You can also cut the dough into eight even squares once you unroll the dough.
  • Add an oreo on the large side of the crescent dough and roll up the oreo. Seal all around so the oreo is completely covered. Repeat with all 8 crescent triangles.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with baking spray or line with air fryer parchment paper.

  • Add the wrapped Oreos into the basket leaving room between each other.
  • Bake at 360°F for 6-8 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  • Using a sieve, dust the air-fried Oreos with powdered sugar. We love to completely coat the tops of crescents.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I bake the crescent wrapped Oreos?

If you don’t have an air fryer, don’t worry! Just add the Oreos to a baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes, or until crispy and golden. They will not be as crispy but a great option if you don’t have an air fryer.

Can I prepare air fried Oreos ahead of time?

These Oreos are GREAT to prepare ahead of time! After you’ve assembled the mini desserts, just add to a plate and cover tightly so the crescent dough doesn’t dry out. Keep covered in the fridge until you’re ready to cook the Oreos.

What type of Oreos can I use?

This recipe is great with double stuffed Oreos along with the classic Oreos. If you want to go further with your flavors you can try using other flavored Oreos, like mint!

Can I reheat my fried Oreos?

Though I doubt there will be leftovers, you can reheat these air-fried Oreos in the air fryer until warm. We recommend eating these fresh.

Do I need to preheat my air fryer?

No, preheating the air fryer is not necessary.

ADD-oNS FOR FRIED OREOS-

A classic topping is just powdered sugar for the air-fried oreos. However, you can top the crescent dough with some of these toppings for more flavor:

  • cinnamon, before cooked
  • mini chocolate chips, before cooled
  • drizzle chocolate, once cooked
  • sprinkles, once cooked

Enjoy these delicious air fried oreos without the deep fried guilt! This simple dessert recipe will become a family favorite, especially with the kids!
