Expert Tips

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.
To save time, prep 12 mini crescent dogs, and place in the air fryer. While they are cooking, prep the remaining 12.
Making the mini crescent dogs in two batches gives enough space for each one to cook without touching, so each crescent can cook through to golden brown goodness. If you have a smaller air fryer, cook in more batches.
Serve crescent dogs with ketchup, horseradish sauce, chili sauce or mustard for dipping.
