An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that uses hot air circulation to cook food, producing a crispy and crunchy texture similar to deep frying but with significantly less oil. It works by circulating hot air around the food, which cooks and crisps it without the need for excess oil.
For this recipe, the air fryer is used to cook the cinnamon twists to a crispy golden brown texture while keeping them soft and fluffy on the inside. By using the air fryer, we can achieve the same delicious taste and texture of traditional deep-fried cinnamon twists but with a fraction of the oil and calories.
