Air Fryer Beignets!

So, I never realized that a biscuit could taste even better when it becomes an Air Fryer Beignet! This is another wonderful Pampered Chef recipe, it was so easy to make, and such a delicious treat, even the next day.

Let’s jump right in!

What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
  • 2 tsp (10ml) cinnamon
  • 1 pkg (16.3 oz./462 g) flaky biscuit dough (8 biscuits)
  • Flour for dusting
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate morsels, divided
  • Oil for spraying
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • Optional: chocolate sauce

First, you’ll want to grab a package of refrigerated flaky biscuit dough which contains eight biscuits. Open the package, then peel and divide each piece of biscuit and half to create 16 biscuits total.

Dust a rolling pin with flour and roll out each biscuit to a 4-in (10-cm) round.

Next, dip the hand pie and pocket maker in flower and place the dough on top fill one side of the dough with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of chocolate morsels (I used dark chocolate), pressed to seal, then remove from the pocket maker. Repeat for each piece of dough.

Spray the trays of the deluxe air fryer with oil. Divide the beignets evenly onto both trays.

Place the trays on the bottom to racks Cook on BAKE for 12 minutes, until golden brown, rotating the trays halfway through.

While they are cooking, combine 1/4 cup (60ml) sugar with 2 teaspoons (10 ml) cinnamon and a shallow bowl.

When they are cooked fully, brush the top of each beignet with melted butter and dip the buttered side into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Serve the beignets warm and drizzle chocolate sauce, if you’d like. I actually took about a quarter cup of dark chocolate morsels and melted them on HIGH in the microwave for 30 seconds, then whisked. I put it in for another 10 seconds, whisked again and that is what I used to drizzle over the beignets.

We found them to be delicious the next morning as well. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! My recipe video is at the bottom of this post.
