Ingredients for Air Fryer Oreos
To make these air fryer fried Oreos, you just need 4 ingredients. Awesome, right?
- 16 Oreo cookies
- 8 canned biscuits
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- Cooking oil spray
Oreos: Use your favorite Oreo cookies (or other crispy chocolate cookie with creme filling) in this recipe. Whether you choose regular Oreos, double stuff Oreos, or any one of their many different flavors (peanut butter is a great one to try) — you can’t go wrong!
Biscuits: Again, you have some freedom to customize this recipe to your own taste here. Choose buttermilk biscuits, crescent rolls or sweet rolls.
Alternately, you can even use pancake mix. Make the pancake batter according to the package directions, using slightly less liquid to get a thick batter — then dip the Oreos into the batter instead of wrapping them in the biscuit dough.

How to Make Air Fryer Deep Fried Oreos
You won’t believe how easy it is to make this fair favorite at home. Just a few simple steps and you’ll have a fun treat your entire family will rave about.
Step 1: Prepare dough
To begin, separate the biscuits and cut each one in half.
Step 2: Cover Oreos
Next, wrap each cookie in dough. Make sure to seal the edges so the cookie is completely covered.
Step 3: Air Fry
Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil. Then place the cookie balls inside the basket of the air fryer in a single layer.
Make sure to leave some space between each cookie since the dough will expand during cooking. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you will probably need to cook in batches.
Spray the dough-covered cookies with the cooking spray. Cook at 370°F for 4 minutes, until the crust is golden brown. Then, flip them and cook for another 4 minutes.
Step 4: Finish and Serve
Use a large spoon to remove the fried Oreos to a plate and dust with powdered sugar.
Serve right away since they are best while they’re still warm and the filling is melted and gooey.
