Did you know you can make donuts in the air fryer with tubes of refrigerated biscuit dough? It’s easy and takes just a few minutes. Then, you can dust them with powdered sugar, and they’re ready to eat!

What do you need to make Air Fryer Screaming Donuts?

With the help of your Air Fryer you can make these Bloody Screaming Donuts. You will need:

  • 1 tube of Pillsbury Grand’s Biscuits
  • powdered sugar
  • a rolling pin (or just a cup for rolling out the biscuits)
  • 1-inch round cookie cutter

How do you make Screaming Donuts in the Air Fryer?

I like to use the Sweet Hawaiian or Honey Butter biscuits to add some sweetness since we’re turning them into donuts.

Roll out each biscuit until it’s more oblong in shape.

Then use the 1-inch cookie cutter to cut out the eyes and a mouth.

After the eyes and mouth are cut out, then stretch the biscuits a bit to give them a more ghoulish look.

Preheat the air fryer to 345 F degrees. If you don’t have a preheat setting, you can just turn the air fryer on for 4-5 minutes at this temperature to preheat.

Spray the air fryer with non-stick oil spray.

Place 2-3 screaming donuts in the air fryer spaced out. Make sure they are still looking elongated so you get a scary look.

Set the air fryer to 345 F degrees and cook for 6 minutes.

They should come out just a bit golden brown.

Then, just dust with powdered sugar.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

Keep leftovers in a sealed container for a day or two.
