I’m not really sure why my photos uploaded blurry, since they didn’t look that way when they came off the camera, but after trying for over an hour to figure out why they are doing that, I gave up.

You can still see how yummy they look.

We’ve had some back and forth weather around here so these put me in the Fall mood from the first bite.

I’m ready for cool days and sweater weather.

Great for a morning commute.

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter cut into small pieces

  1. I’m super excited to this recipe – love that they’re made in the air fryer instead of fried, and there’s just enough pumpkin to make this a fantastic fall treat.

  2. These delightful little puffs look so good. I love my air-fryer and am trying to find recipes that are quick and easy. Cinnamon always makes me think autumn. Thank you

  3. I have yet to try to “bake” anything in my air fryer. These look like I need to try! They remind me of the apple cider donut holes we get on the way back from Shenandoah.

  4. I never leave comments but these are delicious. I also followed the 10th step with the butter and sugar and even better! I paired it with my morning coffee and it’s such a good treat. thanks for this recipe!
