Air Fried Oreos Recipe
Fried food was a big part of my childhood. It's cheap, easy, and you can fry almost anything!
These Air Fried Oreos are the perfect quick and delicious dessert to whip up after dinner.
With just three simple ingredients — Oreos, canned crescent rolls, and powdered sugar — anyone can help with this dessert recipe!
Did you know Oreos are naturally vegan? Most crescent rolls are too, making this a great vegan option for a party! Just check your dough.
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRIED OREOS
This recipe makes 8 Air Fried Oreos because there's usually 8 crescent rolls in a can.
You can easily double or even triple this recipe for a party! Make them in batches and don't overcrowd your air fryer.
- First, separate your crescent rolls and lay them on a piece of parchment paper.
- Next, place an Oreo on each piece. I like to put them on the wider end to prevent leakage.
- Now, gently wrap the Oreos in dough, covering all sides, and place in your air fryer basket or on your air fryer tray!
- Then, cook your wrapped cookies for about 5 minutes at 350 degrees F (or 177 degrees C!) until the crescent rolls are golden brown.
- Finally, remove Air Fried Oreos from the basket and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- Serve immediately. Enjoy!
History of Fried Oreos
I first fell in love with traditionally fried Oreos at the state fair. It sounds so wrong, but it feels so right in your mouth.
The deep fried version was first introduced at the L.A. County Fair in 2002 thanks to Charlie Boghosian or "The Man Who Fries Everything."
Typically, fried Oreos are surrounded by a buttermilk pancake batter and fried in vegetable oil.
We cut the calories considerably with this air fryer recipe. It still cures that fair junk food craving!
How long do Fried Oreos last?
If you even have leftovers with this air fryer recipe, they won't last long.
Air Fried Oreos will last about 24 hours and can be stored in the fridge overnight if needed.
If you have to keep them, put them in a paper bag or in a container with a paper towel to help absorb the humidity.
