Did you now that desserts have a long history? They go way back. The first known use of the word desserts was back in 1600. It came from a French word “desservir” which meant “to clear the table”.

Generally dessert is a course that ends the meal or concludes it. The dessert course usually is made up of sweet foods or sometimes sweet liqueur. Generally, now desserts seem to stand on their own. You do not have to have a fancy 5 course meal to eat a dessert.

Desserts can be eaten as a snack or at the end of a meal. Some sweeter breakfast items can be made into desserts, such as sweet muffins or pastries.

Today we are talking about Air Fryer Desserts! You probably already know how amazing air fryers are, since you are on this page. Chances are you already own and air fryer or maybe two!? Air Fryer are not just for making french fries and frozen foods, they are made to cook much more.

We have shared with you some amazing air fryer breakfast recipes, some air fryer vegetable recipes and more. Today it is all about Air Fryer Desserts. We want you to think outside of the box, or outside of the air fryer, if you will.

Use your air fryer to “bake” items, just like when we made air fryer cupcakes from a box mix. Or those delicious pastries you can make from refrigerated crescent rolls. Once you get the hang of making air fryer desserts, with some trial and error, you will be an expert when it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth with your air fryer.

Using your air fryer does take some practice, especially if you are newer to air frying. Remember that it does take some trial and error. Do not be afraid to check your food while it is cooking. Each air fryer runs a bit differently, so you may need to add more time or take cook time away, depending on what air fryer you are using.

ProTip: Remember that you can use anything that is oven safe in your air fryer. Everything from silicone cupcake cups, small cake pans, ramekins and more. If it is oven safe, then it is air fryer safe. Probably my MOST favorite item that I use in my air fryer is my air fryer pot!

You also need to be mindful when converting oven recipes to air fryer recipes. The time and temp will not stay the same. We have developed an Air Fryer Calculator to help you with those conversions!

    I tried the pumpkin pie in my air fryer oven and it turned out great. We had an early Thanksgiving and I was happy to be able to use my air fryer to free up space in my oven!
