  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup chunky applesauce
  • 4 teaspoons apple cider or juice, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat air fryer to 300°. Unroll crescent dough; separate into 8 triangles. Place 1 tablespoon applesauce at the wide end of each triangle; carefully roll up. Brush tops with 2 teaspoons cider. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over rolls.
  2. In batches, arrange rolls, point side down, in a single layer in greased air fryer. Curve to form crescents. Cook until golden brown, 7-9 minutes. Cool slightly. Combine confectioners' sugar and remaining 2 teaspoons cider; drizzle over rolls. Serve warm.
