Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Cut 8-inch round of cooking parchment paper. Place in bottom of air fryer basket. Spray with cooking spray. Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon in 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 8 biscuits; cut each biscuit into quarters. Shake pieces in bag to coat. Place 16 pieces in single layer in bottom of air fryer basket, spacing apart.
  • 3
    Set air fryer to 330°F; cook 4 minutes. Using 2 forks, turn over each piece; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until biscuit pieces are firm to the touch and no longer doughy in center. Remove from air fryer, and pour into large bowl. Cover loosely with foil. Repeat with remaining 16 pieces; add to other cooked pieces in bowl. Discard parchment.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat butter and brown sugar over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and mixture is smooth and bubbles are starting to form around the edge. Pour over cooked biscuit pieces in bowl; stir to coat.
  • 5
    Carefully line air fryer basket and sides with foil. Pour coated pieces into air fryer basket. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until pieces are glazed. Remove basket, and let stand 5 minutes. Pour into serving bowl. 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 or foil alone.
  • tip 3
    We tested this Air Fryer Monkey Bread Bites recipe in a 3.7-quart air fryer. If using a larger air fryer, such as a 6-quart size, you may be able to fit more of the sugar-cinnamon-coated biscuit pieces into one batch for cooking before the butter-brown sugar mixture is added. Be sure to cook them in a single layer, spacing them apart, and with enough room to turn them over.
  • tip 4
    When lining the air fryer basket with foil, be sure the foil goes up the sides of the basket but not over the basket edge.
