Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls for Two

There’s nothing like good old-fashioned cinnamon rolls for breakfast! But if you’re cooking for you or for two, a batch of 12-14 cinnamon rolls may not be ideal. Enter cinnamon rolls for two! A perfectly portioned recipe that serves two, generously and cooks right in the air fryer!

Yields2 Servings

Cook Time25 mins

Ingredients

  cup milk, warmed to 110 degrees
 1 tsp active dry yeast
 1 tbsp sugar
 2 tbsp butter, melted and slightly cooled
 1 large egg yolk
 ¼ tsp salt
 1 cup flour, plus more for kneading
Filling
  cup packed brown sugar
 1 tsp cinnamon
 3 tbsp butter, softened
Frosting
 3 oz cream cheese
 2 tbsp butter, softened
  cup powdered sugar
 ¼ tsp vanilla extract

Directions

1

In a medium bowl, add the warmed milk, yeast, and sugar. Set aside until foamy then whisk in the melted butter, egg yolk, and salt. Add the flour and stir to combine. Transfer the dough onto a floured work surface and knead until no longer sticky, about 10-15 times.

2

In a lightly-greased medium bowl, transfer the dough and cover. Set aside and allow to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.

3

Once risen, transfer the dough to a floured work surface. Using a rolling pin, shape and roll into a 6×10-inch rectangle. Spread the softened butter over the surface and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Starting at the short end, roll the dough up into a log and cut into six. Place into a greased 6-inch baking dish, cover, and allow to rise until doubled in size.

4

Preheat the air fryer to 325 degrees F. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 15-18 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

5

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, softened butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Spread the frosting over the rolls and serve warm.
