How to Make Air Fryer Crescent Rolls Croissants

After testing a batch we were blown away at how perfect and easy it is to air fry refrigerated canned crescent dough. Nothing burned and everything was cooked through well. The circulating hot air fryer air made the canned crescent dough rise beautifully. The texture is crispy, flaky on the outside and warm and tender on the inside. All the recipe details and times are in the recipe box below.

Why Canned Crescent Rolls Burn in Air Fryer Or Still Raw?

The issues we had with canned biscuit dough is the same with this crescent rolls. Some will be too hot and get burned if too close to the heating element. Some rolls will still be raw in the middle because it cooked too hot too fast. Test 1-2 first before you cook a whole batch. If you’re using an oven style air fryer, you might run into these issues. So check out our tips and suggestions to make sure your crescents come out perfect. READ–>  OUR PROBLEMS and TIPS HERE about cooking with canned dough.

Air Fryer cooking times will vary a lot depending on your size and style of air fryer. Check the crescents after the first 6 minutes to make sure it’s cooking to your preferred texture. After cooking in your specific air fryer, you’ll know what time and temp works best for the crescent rolls you have.
We suggest cooking them slightly “crisper” or more golden brown on on the outside to make sure the crescents are cooked all the way through.

  • 1 can refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • oil spray



  • Spray the air fryer basket or racks with oil to keep the crescent rolls from sticking. We don’t suggest using parchment paper underneath because you want maximum air flow under the crescents to help them cook all the way though. The parchment paper prevents maximum air flow.
  • Lay crescent rolls in single layer on air fryer basket/rack. Make sure to space them out so they aren't touching & have room to rise & expand.
  • Air Fry at 330°F/165°C for about 6-7 minutes. Gently wiggle to loosen from the baskets.
  • If needed, continue to Air Fry for another 1-3 minutes, or until they are crispy brown and cooked through.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
