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. Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start.
  • tip 2
    We tested this recipe in a 3.7-quart air fryer. If using a larger air fryer, such as 6-quart size, you may be able to fit more of the doughnuts into one batch for cooking. Be sure to cook them in a single layer, spacing them apart, and with enough room to turn them over.
  • tip 3
    For extra flair, sprinkle colored candy sprinkles over glazed doughnuts while glaze is still wet.
