Air Fryer Crescent Lemon Danish are amazing! Do you imagine in less than 10 minutes, you can make a fresh batch of homemade danish right in your Air Fryer?
This is such an easy breakfast or dessert to make. My kids absolutely love them. Today, I used lemon pie filling, but if you have time, making lemon curd in the Instant Pot is really easy.
You can switch out the canned for fresh, and they are fabulous. This will soon become a family favorite, and it’s really kid-approved, with the drizzle of icing on top.

How To Make Air Fryer Crescent Lemon Danish
Start by laying out the dough. I try to pinch the seam with my fingers closed.
Brush the dough with melted butter.
Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the melted butter.
Then use your hands and roll up[ the dough into a long braid. Then cut the braid into 2 equal portions and then loop the dough around itself to form a circle.
Place your circles onto a greased air fryer tray or a greased air fryer basket (both sprayed with olive oil). Add the lemon filling to the middle of the dough. Set the tray or basket into the air fryer and air fry for 5 minutes at 330 degrees F (air fryer setting)
How To Make This In The Oven
Looking to make a whole batch, these will bake up perfectly in the oven. Prepare as directed and then set them onto a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into a preheated oven at 375 degrees F.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
How To Store Air Fryer Crescent Lemon Danish
These make a great leftover snack to store. Let them cool to room temperature. Then set them into an aright container or plastic resealable bag.
They will last for about 1 to 2 days. You can either reheat in the microwave or the air fryer.
This will work with a whole line of pie fillings. Here are some of my favorites:
- Blueberry Pie Filling
