Quick and Easy Holiday Treat Idea in the Air Fryer

I love how simple this recipe is! With the air fryer, you can have this recipe ready in 20 minutes. This recipe is so fun and easy!

Plus, you only need several ingredients for this recipe.

  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon + ¼-½ cup sugar divided
  • ½ tablespoon ground allspice
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ tablespoon ground ginger
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Soft Cream Cheese Center

You will love this recipe for the creamy and soft cream cheese in the middle. In a small bowl mix together 1 tablespoon of sugar and the softened cream cheese. I like to use a fork to mash the cream cheese and sugar together.

How to Make Gingerbread Bites

When you are ready to assemble the bites, unroll the crescent dough. Evenly place a tablespoon of cream cheese every couple inches or so on the crescent dough. You’ll be able to put 12-16 cream cheese centers on the dough- this will depend on how thick you want the gingerbread bites to be.

Then, I like to take a knife or a pizza cutter and cut the dough evenly into squares around the cream cheese.

After this, gently fold the crescent dough to cover cream cheese. Pinch the dough together so that no cream cheese can escape.

Once you are ready to cook, dip the bites into  the spice mixture and cover completely. Place the bites in a lightly sprayed air fryer basket on parchment paper and cook for 8-9 minutes at 350°F/175°C.

Final Thoughts

I love that this air fryer recipe is so simple and easy. You could try this recipe with any spice mixture that you desire. I bet the cream cheese bites would taste fantastic with an apple pie or pumpkin pie spice mixture! Share with us in the comments below what you love about this recipe!
