Mickey Air Fryer Donuts: What You’ll Need

set of five mickey mouse cookie cutters

The first thing you’ll need is a Mickey-shaped cookie cutter, of course. If you don’t already have one (whaaaattt?) then get this five pack of Mickey cutters for super cheap on Amazon.

You’ll also need an air fryer if you want these to cook up nice and crispy like donuts. I have this compact model from Macy’s and it does the trick – I do have to cook these in a few batches, though. 

Then you’ll need to gather these four ingredients before you start:

  • a pack of refrigerated biscuit dough (I use store brand because it’s cheap)
  • 2 tablespoons butter which you’ll need to melt
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

How To Make These Mickey Air Fryer Biscuit Donuts

After trial and error I learned to spread the piece of biscuit dough into a long oval shape to cut out two donuts from one piece. Then I balled up the remaining dough and was able to get one more donut from that.

Then I piled the donuts into my little air fryer. I did these in two batches but most people could likely do it in one with a full sized air fryer. 

I did not coat the surface at all since the dough releases grease as it cooks. I had absolutely not problem with them sticking. 

It takes surprisingly little time to cook these. I checked them after 2 minutes and they were already starting to brown. 

I shook them around and put them back in for another 2 minutes and they were done. You’ll know they are done when they are lightly browned and puffy.

Then the fun – brushing these babies down with butter and coating them in cinnamon sugar. Make sure you brush both sides and press some of the cinnamon sugar onto them for the full delicious effect. 

Then they are ready to eat! They are best enjoyed right after making but I doubt you’ll have much luck keeping them around – they are SO SO good. 

Enjoy your Mickey air fryer biscuit donuts and have a magical day.
