Instructions For Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls
Prepare rolls: Put parchment paper on the air fryer’s bottom and brush it with butter. Beat butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a generous amount of salt together in a medium-sized bowl until frothy and creamy.
Gently roll out crescent rolls into a single piece on a board dusted with flour. Sew edges tightly and fold in half. Roll to a rectangle that is 9″ by 7″. Over the dough, spread the butter mixture, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Roll out the dough like a jelly roll, beginning at a long edge, and cut into six pieces crosswise.
Place parts, cut-side up, equally spaced, in the air fryer that has been prepared.
Preheat the air fryer to 350° and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the food is golden and cooked through.
Prepare the glaze: Beat the cream cheese, milk, and powdered sugar together in a medium-sized bowl. If extra milk is needed to thin the glaze, add it by the teaspoonful.
Drizzle warm cinnamon rolls with glaze and serve.
