Cooking Toaster Strudels in an air fryer is a quick and convenient way to enjoy this delicious treat with a crispy exterior. Toaster Strudels are frozen pastries filled with various flavors like fruit, cream cheese, or icing. Here’s how to cook Toaster Strudels in an air fryer:
- Frozen Toaster Strudels
- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C) for about 3-5 minutes. Preheating ensures even cooking and a crispy texture.
- Prepare the Toaster Strudels: Take the desired number of frozen Toaster Strudels out of the packaging. Do not thaw the pastries; cook them directly from frozen.
- Arrange in the Basket: Place the frozen Toaster Strudels in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Make sure there’s some space between them for proper air circulation.
- Cooking Time: Cook the Toaster Strudels in the preheated air fryer for about 6-8 minutes. Cooking times can vary based on the air fryer model and the size of the pastries.
- Turn and Shake (Optional): About halfway through the cooking time (around 3-4 minutes), you can open the air fryer and turn the Toaster Strudels over or give the basket a gentle shake. This helps ensure even cooking on both sides.
- Check for Doneness: Check the Toaster Strudels to ensure they’re golden brown and heated through. The exterior should be crispy, and the filling should be warm.
- Add Icing (Optional): If your Toaster Strudels come with icing, you can add it after cooking. Carefully drizzle or spread the icing over the warm pastries for extra flavor.
- Serve and Enjoy: Once the Toaster Strudels are cooked to your liking, carefully remove them from the air fryer using tongs. Allow them to cool slightly before serving.
Note: Keep in mind that cooking times may vary based on the specific air fryer model, the number of Toaster Strudels being cooked, and your desired level of crispiness. It’s essential to monitor the pastries as they cook to avoid overcooking or burning.
Always prioritize safety when using your air fryer, and be cautious when handling hot food and the air fryer basket. Enjoy your air-fried Toaster Strudels with their crispy texture and flavorful fillings
