Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Unroll crescent roll dough sheet and pat out to an 8x12-inch rectangle. Cut dough in half lengthwise with a pizza cutter and cut each piece crosswise into 1/2-inch wide "sticks." Dip doughnut sticks in melted butter and place in a single later in the air fryer basket.

  • Cook in the air fryer at 380 degrees F (195 degrees C) until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Stir together sugar and cinnamon in a pie plate or shallow bowl. Remove doughnut sticks from the air fryer and roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining dough.

  • Serve doughnut sticks with jam.

Cook's Notes:

You can also serve doughnut sticks with syrup, honey, melted chocolate, caramel, or desired frosting.

To make donut bites, use a (16.3 ounce) package refrigerated large biscuits. Cut each biscuit into quarters, dip in butter, and cook as directed for doughnut sticks. Makes 32 bites.

What a fun recipe! This turned out really good and is one I would definitely make again. The rich buttery flavor comes through and the cinnamon did not overpower. It reminded me of that famous cereal. I had more than half of the sugar/cinnamon left over so I'd reduce that next time. For now, it just gives me an excuse to go get another tube of crescent roll dough and make another batch! Read More
