Air Fryer Churros Recipe

Makes 24 churros

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 6 minutes


  • 1 sheet puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees.
  2. As the air fryer to heating up, cut the puff pastry dough in half. Next, cut each half into one-inch strips.
  3. Place the strips in your air fryer basket or tray and cook for 6 to 8 minutes. You want the dough to cook until it’s a golden brown.
  4. Stir together the sugar and cinnamon. We like to do this in a zip lock bag so that we can keep it mess free.
  5. Immediately after removing them from the air fryer, brush each churro with the melted butter and place in the bag with the cinnamon and sugar. Lightly shake the bag to coat the churro.
