All you need is a can of Pillsbury Orange rolls. You can find them in the dairy department near the canned biscuits. Pillsbury is the main supplier for this flavor, but I have occasionally seen a store brand.

How to Cook Pillsbury Orange Rolls in the Air Fryer

Set Air Fryer to 380­° for 7 minutes. Open can of orange rolls and place them in the air fryer basket making sure you don’t let the sides touch. There is no need to grease a round cake pan for this recipe like you would if cooking in an oven. Bake for 7 minutes and they are ready to spread orange icing on top to serve.

Since air fryers are each a little different check on the rolls at 4 minutes. Turn them over if they are browning too quickly. You can subtract or add a minute or two if needed.

Serving Ideas

Great for weekday or weekend breakfasts. They fill you up and leave you happy and satisfied. What a great way to start the day!

Orange rolls are a great snack for afternoon at work or when getting home from school.

Sweet rolls for dessert are an easy dinner idea!

How to Store

Refrigerate cooked rolls in a storage bag or a sealed storage container. You can add icing after reheating or store already frosted. Microwave about 8 or 9 seconds to reheat.

Pro Tips

Check on your rolls about half way through to be sure they are not browning too quickly. You can flip them for the rest of the cooking time if needed.

Leave space between the rolls to be sure they cook evenly and get done inside.

Use parchment paper to line basket for easy cleanup.

Nutrition values are approximate and vary according to products used.
Air fryers vary slightly.  You may need to spritz your basket with a little olive oil before placing rolls to cook. Check to be sure they are not burning on the bottom at about half way through cooking.  Turn them over if they are getting too brown on top.  You could also use parchment paper to line the basket for non-stick and easy cleanup.
Check cooking at 4 minutes.  If they are getting too brown, turn them over to complete the last 3 minutes of cooking.
If your air fryer basket is small, divide a can into to batches to cook so there is space between each roll.
