Recipe Tips for Toaster Strudel in the Air Fryer
Keep in mind that cooking time may vary slightly based on the size and brand of your air fryer. Check on the toaster strudels around the 5-minute mark and continue cooking until they are heated all the way through.
Don’t overcrowd the basket. Leave a little room between each toaster strudel for optimal cooking.
There’s no need to grease your air fryer. The oil in the pastry will prevent sticking.
Apply the icing drizzle after the toaster strudels have finished air frying. If you ice them before cooking, the heat from the air fryer will cause the icing to melt off.

How Long to Cook a Toaster Strudel in the Air Fryer
The ideal cooking time will depend on the size and brand of your air fryer. Generally, 6 minutes at 350 degrees F is perfect. However, you may need to adjust the time slightly to achieve the desired level of crispiness and warmth. Remember to ensure the filling is hot and the pastry is crispy.
Please note that these instructions are specifically for frozen Pillsbury toaster strudels. If you are making homemade toaster strudels, they will require different cooking times and temperatures.
Can I Reheat Them?
I recommend only making as many toaster strudels as you need. If you find yourself with extras, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to enjoy them again, simply reheat them at 320 degrees F for a few minutes. To make cleanup easier, consider using a silicone liner or parchment paper.
