Expert Tips

  • No parchment paper? No problem! Use a 10-inch (25 cm) piece of foil. Spray with cooking spray before adding crescents to air fryer.
  • Round out the meal! Add a simple green salad tossed with Italian dressing.
  • Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start. Never preheat with parchment paper alone.
