You don't have to heat up the oven for a quick and easy breakfast. Try making these Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls in the air fryer.  You will not be disappointed.


Air Fryer Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls


I use my air fryer nearly every day in the summer months.  I am finding there is not much that I can't cook, bake, or grill in my air fryer.  I have been seeing the TikTok sensation for canned cinnamon rolls on every social media platform lately.  So I wanted to give them a try in my air fryer using sweetened pumpkin puree. 



The viral TikTok cinnamon roll hack uses heavy cream, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  


In this recipe, I combined the viral cinnamon roll hack ingredients with sweetened pumpkin puree to the heavy cream and adding pumpkin pie spice to the brown sugar.


They are truly delicious, with pumpkin pie filling and cozy pumpkin pie spice in every bite, then topped with a brown butter icing; oh my gracious, did I say delicious?

Below under the next heading, I give a list of preferred ingredients, tips, and cooking instructions for the Air Fryer Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls and similar recipe ideas you can have.

Or you can scroll down to the bottom, where you will find a full printable recipe card with amounts of the ingredients and complete instructions with notes.



HERE ARE A FEW TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE THE BEST AIR FRYER PUMPKIN CINNAMON ROLLS


  • Cinnamon rolls:  Any brand of canned cinnamon rolls will work.  I use the canned Pillsbury Grand Cinnamon Rolls.

  • Heavy cream:  Heavy cream or whipping cream will work.  Do not use half and half.  The extra fat in the heavy cream will transform the cinnamon rolls and make them extra soft and pillowy.

  • Butter:  I like to use salted butter to make the brown butter icing.

  • Icing:  You can make homemade icing or use the icing with the canned cinnamon rolls.

  • Brown sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice:  just a little added flavor to the cinnamon rolls.


WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE AIR FRYER PUMPKIN CINNAMON ROLLS



  • Baking pan to fit air fryer (I used 9" cake pans)

  • Canned cinnamon rolls (I used Pillsbury Grand Cinnamon Rolls)

  • Heavy cream

  • Pumpkin puree

  • Brown sugar

  • Cinnamon 

  • Pumpkin pie spice

  • Butter

  • Icing in the canned cinnamon rolls

  • Vanilla



HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER PUMPKIN CINNAMON ROLLS



  • Preheat the air fryer to 325 degrees F. on baked.

  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter and cook until a foam begins to form on the top.  Stir occasionally and watch closely for about 5 minutes when the milk fat starts to brown lightly.  Remove from the burner, stir and pour in a 2 cup measuring cup and then chill in the refrigerator.

  • Arrange the cinnamon rolls in the pan.  (I used 2 9" pans, 7 rolls in one and 8 in the other, and baked in two batches.)

  • Add the pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and heavy cream in a two-cup measuring cup.  Stir with a wire whisk until mixed well.

  • Pour by spoonful over each cinnamon roll evenly until all of it is in the pan.

  • Add the 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl and mix well.

  • Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the top of each cinnamon roll.

  • Place one pan in the air fryer and bake for 15-20 minutes.  Check with a knife in the center of the cinnamon rolls after 15 minutes to see if the cinnamon rolls are done.  They should be soft but not doughy.  Repeat with the second pan.

  • While the second pan is baking in the air fryer, remove the brown butter from the refrigerator and add vanilla and the 3 containers of icing from the canned cinnamon rolls.  Using a wire whisk, whip the ingredients together until smooth and creamy.

  • Let the baked cinnamon rolls cool for 5 minutes before icing them.
