Ingredients

  • 1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach
  • 3 oz (from 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup artichoke hearts, drained, chopped and patted dry (from 14-oz can)
  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Steps

  • 1
    Cook spinach as directed on package; drain. Cool 15 minutes. With hands, squeeze excess liquid from spinach. Measure 1/4 cup of the spinach; set aside for filling. Cover and refrigerate remaining spinach for another use.
  • 2
    Cut 8-inch round of cooking parchment paper. Place in bottom of air fryer basket.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, stir cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese, the salt and garlic powder with spatula until blended. Stir in the 1/4 cup spinach and the artichoke hearts until mixed well.
  • 4
    Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles. With pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut each triangle in half lengthwise to 16 triangles. Spoon approximately 2 teaspoons cream cheese mixture onto each triangle. Roll up, starting at shortest side and rolling to opposite point. Place 8 crescents on parchment in air fryer basket point side down, spacing apart
  • 5
    In small bowl, stir melted butter with remaining 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese. Brush half of the mixture over tops of crescents in air fryer basket.
  • 6
    Set air fryer to 325°F; cook 5 to 6 minutes or until crescent tops are light brown. With tongs, turn over each one; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from air fryer. Repeat with remaining crescents, brushing tops with remaining butter mixture before cooking.

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 air fryer stuffed crescent rolls in batches gives enough space for each one to cook without touching, allowing each crescent to 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.
