I was looking for a quick and easy treat to make for my husband during Police Week since a lot of our plans got canceled this year and it also had to be kid-approved.
Police officers eating donuts is this ongoing joke so I figured why not change things up a bit and try homemade air fryer donut holes.
These donuts are made from canned or frozen (needs to thawed) biscuit dough. And the two other ingredients you most likely have on hand already in your pantry.
The kids and I are whipping these up for my husband during Police Week but honestly, they are good any time of the year!

How to make easy air fryer donut holes:
The only other ingredients you’ll need are:
-Biscuits (canned or the frozen bag of donuts work). Flaky or homestyle work for this. If you use flaky just know they may not look as pretty but still taste great.
Brace yourselves, this is incredibly easy!
Start by spraying the inside of the air fryer liberally with cooking spray so the donuts do not stick.
Open canned biscuits or frozen biscuits (thawed) and place on a cutting board for easy cutting.
Cut each biscuit into quarters using a pizza cutter. Then roll each bite-size piece into a ball.
Place each bite-size piece of biscuit dough into the air fryer. I recommend not putting more than 12 pieces in the fryer so it does not overcrowd.
Cook in the air fryer for 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
While they are cooking, mix together 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Mix well.
Once they are done, remove the donuts from the air fryer immediately and roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. No butter needed- the mixture will stick nicely to the hot dough.
These ‘dummy’ donuts as I call them are so delicious! Pack them for your officer as a yummy treat, make them for an easy breakfast or surprise your officer and decorate it with a cute donut placecard.
Just download, print, cut out a donut placecard, fold in half and place by the donuts as a nice treat for your the officer in your life.
I am no chef, so these super quick and easy donut holes do the trick!
