HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER PUMPKIN DESSERT BALLS
This is a great recipe to get kids helping in the kitchen. They can help make these to prepare for those fall game night parties.
STEP ONE: MAKE PUMPKIN FILLING
The first step is to make the pumpkin filling that will go inside each air fryer pumpkin dessert ball.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the can of pumpkin, the pumpkin spice seasoning, the egg and the milk. Mix these together until well-combined.
STEP TWO: ROLL OUT DOUGH
Now unroll the crescent rolls on a flat surface and separate each triangle.
STEP THREE: ADD FILLING
Place a teaspoon of the pumpkin filling onto the center of each crescent roll strip.
Roll the dough up into a ball and make sure to press and seal the seams so the filling doesn't leak out.
STEP FOUR: AIR FRY
Lightly spray the air fryer basket or racks if using an air fryer oven with olive oil spray that is non-aerosol like Pam Spray Pump Olive Oil.
Place the pumpkin balls into the basket or onto the racks leaving a little space between each ball for even cooking.
Lightly spray the top of the pumpkin balls with the olive oil spray.
Air fry for around 12 minutes at 360°F or until the balls are golden brown and cooked through.
STEP FIVE: ICE
Icing adds the perfect sweetness to this recipe.
You can make your own icing or just use store bought.
I like to use cream cheese icing for this recipe. It works great to turn this into a glaze type frosting.
All you need to do is put some of the store bought cream cheese frosting in a bowl and microwave for 30-45 seconds. It will become soft and it is easy to drizzle it over these air fryer pumpkin balls!
