Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Cut 8-inch round of cooking parchment paper. Place in bottom of air fryer basket.
  • 2
    In small bowl, stir cream cheese, powdered sugar and chocolate chips until combined.
  • 3
    Separate dough into 8 rolls; place cinnamon side up. Press each roll into 4-inch round. Spoon 1 heaping tablespoonful of the cream cheese mixture into center of each round. Gently fold edges up and over filling; pinch to seal. Place 4 cinnamon rolls on parchment in air fryer basket, seam sides down, spacing apart.
  • 4
    Set air fryer to 325°F; cook 7 to 8 minutes or until cinnamon roll tops are light brown. With tongs, turn over each one; cook 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from air fryer. Repeat with remaining cinnamon rolls.
  • 5
    Transfer icing to small microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered on Low (10%) 8 to 10 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle. Place rolls on serving plate; use a spoon to drizzle icing over rolls. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start. Never preheat with parchment paper alone.
  • tip 3
    Making the cream cheese-stuffed cinnamon rolls in batches gives enough space for each one to cook without touching, so each cinnamon roll can cook through to golden brown goodness. Be sure to cook them in a single layer, spaced apart, with enough room to turn them over. If you have a smaller air fryer, cook in more batches; if you have a large air fryer, cook in fewer batches.
  • tip 4
    Swap the chocolate chip-cream cheese mixture for 4 oz strawberry cream cheese spread, if desired.
