These Orange Glazed Air Fryer Donuts are so easy to make they almost cook themselves. They are topped with a sweet tangy orange glaze made from fresh OJ.



  • 1 16.3-ounce tub of refrigerator biscuits (I use Pillsbury┬áGrands)
  • 2/3 cup of confectioners sugar
  • Juice (about 4-5 TBS) and zest from 1 large orange


  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 350┬░
  2. After opening the biscuit tube, separate the individual biscuits and place them on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  3. Use a small round cookie cutter to cut the donut holes.
  4. Cook the donuts first – 2-3 minutes on one side.
  5. Flip them and cook again for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Cook the donut holes next – 2-3 minutes on onside.
  7. Flip them and cook another 1-2 minutes.
  8. Whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, orange juice, and orange zest until there are no lump or white pieces of sugar.
  9. Dip each donut and donut hole into the glaze.
  10. Let them dry for 20 minutes and then dip them each into the glaze a second time.
