- Dust a cutting board with flour. Unroll the crescent dough onto the cutting board, shaping the dough into one large rectangle that will fit into the Air Fry Basket.

Close the unit to begin cooking Stage 1 (375˚F for 10 minutes), after which the unit will beep three times, alerting you to brush the braid again before the unit moves on to Stage 2 (400˚F for 3 minutes).
