Remember the step-by-step directions and detailed ingredient list are below, in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, as well as the nutritional information.

  • Refrigerated crescent roll dough: I also love to make these air fryer fried Oreos with buttermilk biscuit dough. I found them made by Pillsbury — they already have butter in the dough, which makes them incredibly buttery and absolutely delicious.
  • Oreo cookies
  • Melted butter
  • Cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar

How To Make Air Fried Oreos

To make Air Fried Oreos, follow these simple steps:

Air Fried Oreos With Crescent Rolls

Step 1: Roll out the dough

I usually use a cutting board, or my counter, as it’s flat. If you find that the dough starts to stick, sprinkle some flour on the counter or cutting board.

For fried Oreos with crescent rolls, divide the sheet of dough into 4 rectangles (two triangles each). Press along the perforation to prevent tearing. For biscuit dough, simply roll out each round until flat.

Step 2: Wrap cookies in dough

Place one Oreo cookie in the center of each dough rectangle or circle. Fold the dough over and wrap the cookie inside the dough. Continue wrapping all of your Oreos until you have used all of the dough. Pinch the ends together so they do not open during the cooking process.

Coat each dough ball in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon.

Step 3: How To Cook The Air Fryer Oreos

Spray the basket with olive oil cooking spray. This way, the biscuit dough will not stick to the basket. As you finish rolling the Oreos, place them in the greased air fryer basket. Set the temperature to 380 degrees F for 8 minutes (air fryer setting).

Remove fried Oreos from air fryer and sprinkle with powdered sugar while they are still warm. Serve hot and enjoy!

Recipe Notes Air Fried Oreos

  • Use your preferred dough. You can make fried Oreos with crescent rolls, biscuit dough, or even pancake batter! I like to use refrigerated tubes to save time, but you can use a homemade recipe if you prefer.
  • Don’t crowd the basket. Leave space between each dough-wrapped Oreo so they cook evenly and don’t stick to each other.
  • Work in batches. If your air fryer basket is small, you may need to make a couple at a time. Wrap the cookies at once, then pop the extra in the fridge in between cooking each batch.
  • Add butter and cinnamon last. Do this just before you cook fried Oreos in the air fryer. Otherwise, the butter will soak into the dough and they won’t come out as flaky or crispy.
  • Try different Oreos. This air fried Oreo recipe works with regular, Double Stuf, Mega Stuf, and even flavored varieties. I also like to use the holiday versions for a colorful surprise.

Air Fried Oreos Recipe Faq’s

How to serve deep fried Oreos: What’s not to love about fried Oreos? These delicious cookies are perfect for any party or gathering, and they’re really easy to make.  Air fryer fried Oreos are best served warm. These are so good right out of the air fryer — as they cool down, the flavor starts to go away. Serve them with a generous coating of powdered sugar.

How Long Will Air Fried Oreos Last? I recommend serving air fryer fried Oreos on the same day as you make them for the best results and taste. As they cool down, the flavors start to diminish and the dough becomes less flaky. If you have any leftovers, let them cool and then place them into an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Can I make Air Fried Oreos ahead of time and reheat them later? While Air Fried Oreos are best enjoyed fresh, you can store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1-2 days. To reheat, simply warm them in the air fryer for a few minutes until heated through.

Do I need to freeze the Oreos before air frying them? No, these cookies do not need to be frozen before you air fry them. Because they cook with circulated hot air instead of oil, they won’t melt or get soggy before they are done.

How do I prevent the filling from oozing out while air frying? To prevent the filling from oozing out, ensure that the pancake mix or biscuit dough coating is thick enough to fully encase the Oreos. You can also try freezing the Oreos before coating them to help keep the filling intact.

Can I use any type of Oreos for Air Fried Oreos? Yes, you can use any variety of Oreos, such as original, double-stuffed, or flavored Oreos, depending on your preference.
