Easy Air Fryer Doughnuts

Do you like donuts? Do you have an air fryer? With a can of biscuit dough and just the teensiest bit of coconut oil or olive oil, you can be enjoying warm, flaky donuts in just 10 minutes — no hot oil splatters or deep-fry thermometers in sight. Here’s how to do it.


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (16.3-ounce) can  flaky large biscuits, such as Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Biscuits
  • Olive oil spray or coconut oil spray 

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl; set aside.

  2. Remove the biscuits from the can, separate them, and place them on the baking sheet. Use a 1-inch round biscuit cutter (or similarly-sized bottle cap or shot glass) to cut holes out of the center of each biscuit. 

  3. Lightly coat an air fryer basket with olive or coconut oil spray (do not use nonstick cooking spray such as Pam, which can damage the coating on the basket). 

  4. Place 3 to 4 donuts in a single layer in the air fryer (they should not be touching). Close the air fryer and set to 350°F. Cook, flipping halfway through, until the donuts golden-brown, 5 to 6 minutes total. Transfer donuts to the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining biscuits. You can also cook the donut holes — they will take about 3 minutes total. 

  5. Brush both sides of the warm donuts with melted butter, place in the cinnamon sugar, and flip to coat both sides. Serve warm.

So quick and a great project to make with the kids. They taste light & airy too. Yum!

Birth Day Box

I’ve seen these “exploding picture boxes” everywhere. There are several different kinds and some really great ideas. I decided to make one for my grandsons birthday. I was going to go to the dollar store & see if they had any boxes that fit inside each other, nesting boxes, but decided to just use what I had around the house.

I had these white gift boxes, so I used those & cut them to size. I know I could have done a much neater job if I had more time but I think it came out pretty good for my first try!

I printed out pictures of us and some birthday pictures and then some kids jokes. I hope he likes the jokes!

SnapChat is so much fun with kids! We crack up every time!!

Well it was fun to put it together and I think I will be making these again! Until next time!
