Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, beat powdered sugar, apple cider, apple pie spice and 2 tablespoons of the butter with whisk. Set aside for glaze.
  • 2
    Spray bottom of air fryer basket with cooking spray. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Place biscuits on cutting board. With 1-inch round cookie cutter, cut hole in center of each biscuit.
  • 3
    Place remaining 4 tablespoons butter in medium bowl. Dip all sides of biscuits and centers into butter; shake off excess butter. Place 4 biscuits in air fryer basket, spacing apart.
  • 4
    Set air fryer to 370°F; cook 3 to 6 minutes or until biscuit tops are deep golden brown. Using tongs or spatula, turn over each biscuit. Cook 1 to 4 minutes or until deep golden brown and cooked through. Remove from air fryer; cover loosely with foil to keep warm while cooking second batch. Cook as directed above for remaining 4 biscuits. Remove from air fryer; cover loosely with foil to keep warm while cooking centers.
  • 5
    Place 8 biscuit centers in bottom of air fryer basket. Set air fryer to 370°F; cook 2 minutes. Using tongs or spatula, turn over each biscuit center. Cook 1 to 3 minutes or until deep golden brown and cooked through.
  • 6
    Turn each doughnut upside down, and dip halfway into glaze. Let any excess drip off, then transfer right side up to cooling rack or serving plate. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For best results, immediately remove the uncooked doughnuts and centers from the melted butter after dipping. Don’t leave them in the bowl, as the dough can begin to stick together.
  • tip 2
    Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings. Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start.
  • tip 3
    We tested this recipe for air fryer apple cider doughnuts in a 3.7-quart and a 5.8-quart air fryer. If using a larger air fryer, the doughnuts will cook more quickly, so be sure to check on the biscuit doughnuts and centers earlier.
