Pumpkin Spice Air Fryer Donuts have a crunchy, sugary coating with pumpkin spice added for fall flavor. Biscuit dough is used to make this air fryer donut recipe super easy.
I’ve made this Air Fryer Donut recipe from The Kitchn many times. So I decided to play around with the recipe and give it a fall upgrade! My boys LOVED these and immediately demanded a second batch so that they could have them for breakfast on school days.
How do you like to spend your Fall weekends?
This time of year for us is like most families I’m sure. School, sports, work. Trying to balance it all can sometimes be overwhelming with everyone going in different directions. On the weekends I really like to make sure that we have some family time either at breakfast or Sunday dinner.
Since both boys are now playing sports on both days of the weekend, breakfast seems to make the most sense. That is what makes these pumpkin spice air fryer donuts such a great breakfast. These donuts are easy to make, kids can help with the recipe and of course, they are delicious.
So grab the pumpkin spice and let’s break out the air fryer!
How to make Pumpkin Spice Air Fryer Donuts:
Start by separating the biscuits into 8 sections.
Pat the biscuits to flatten a little bit. Make sure not to flatten too much or you won’t have enough room to fit 4 donuts into the air fryer at a time.
Next, using a small shot glass to cut a circle in the center of the dough.
Remove the circle and set aside. Take the donut holes and cook just like the other donuts. Bonus donut bites!
Now coat the bottom of the air fryer with a small amount of olive oil. Make sure to read your air fryer’s directions before using any type of oil though as not to damage your
Set the air fryer to 350 degree and fry the donuts for 3 minutes, take out the basket and flip. Fry for another 3 minutes.
While the donuts are air frying, melt the butter in a shallow dish and add the coating ingredients to another bowl: sugar, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon.
As the donuts get done (you will cook these in batches of 4), take the donuts and dip both sides into the butter.
Then place the buttered donuts into the coating , flip the donut and coat the other side.
Finally, add the donuts to a cooling rack.

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is a creamy treat that perfect for fall! This no-churn ice cream recipe is a great break from traditional pumpkin spice recipes.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make ice cream. No fancy equipment just start with 2 simple ingredients and then add from there. I’ve always wanted to try my own so I thought for Fall some pumpkin ice cream would be perfect. Even better, pumpkin pie ice cream.
Even though Friday was officially the beginning of Fall ice cream really is in order since this week has been H-O-T! I’m talking like almost 90 degrees. It’s a little odd to see the leaves falling when you are staring at them from inside because you want to be close to the A/C. Not complaining though because Michigan winters are so long that I will take every last bit of Summer I can get. So now let’s cool off with some pumpkin pie ice cream, shall we?
Is no-churn ice cream at home? Yes!
- Start with just two ingredients: heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.
- Don’t have a Kitchen Aid mixer? A handheld electric mixer works just as well!
- Add nuts, fruit, candy pieces, chocolate chunks…anything you like to make a no-churn dessert at home the whole family will love.
How to make Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream:
Using a mixer, either stand or handheld, whip the whipping cream for around 5 minutes until peaks form. With it still going add the can of sweetened condensed milk.
Finally add the pumpkin, vanilla and pumpkin spice. That’s it! Turn off the mixer and get ready to add the cookies.
In a Ziploc bag crush up the cookies or graham crackers whatever your using. Not too fine though. Add 3/4 of the cup of crushed cookies into the filling.
Place into a loaf pan, it worked perfect and didn’t take up too much room in my freezer. Now put the rest of the cookies on top.
Into the freezer, this pumpkin pie ice cream goes. It needs at least 6 hours if not overnight. I got too tempted and tried it after about 4 hours and it was not done–but it tasted good like pudding just not like ice cream. Once it’s set, delicious.
