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.

Recipe for Air Fryer Cinnamon Spice Donut Drops
Air Fryer Cinnamon Spice Donut Drops
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons cold salted butter cut into small pieces
- 1/3 cup milk
- Whisk together flour, sugar, spices, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
- Cut the butter into small pieces and cut the butter into flour mixture using a pastry cutter. It should look like course cornmeal.
- Add the milk, and mix until dough forms a ball.
- On a floured surface, knead dough until smooth.
- Roll out 18 dough balls.
- Spray the bottom tray in air fryer with cooking spray to thoroughly coat.
- Place half the dough balls into the air fryer, keeping them spaced apart.
- Spray the donut drops with cooking spray and cook in air fryer for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until they are puffed up and golden.
- Remove from air fryer to wire rack and allow to cool slightly. You can eat them as is, or continue with step 10.
- While the donut drops are still warm, dip the balls into melted butter and then roll in cinnamon sugar. Allow to cool completely and enjoy!
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.
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
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.
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!
