Once you have your ingredients together, it's time to make these yummy treats. With just a few simple steps, you will have delicious fall inspired donut holes. Let's get right to it, without delay! 

Here is how to make them:

Flatten the dough with your hands or a rolling pin until it's about an inch thick.

Next, fill the center of your biscuits with a delicious cinnamon cream cheese.

Wrap the dough around the cream cheese to form a ball. Seal up the edges perfectly, so none of the mixture spills out.

Whisk the sugar and pumpkin spice together. Once it's combined, dip the dough balls into the butter.

Then immediately roll into the pumpkin spice mixture.

Make sure each ball is completely covered.

Next, let's answer some questions you might have.


The Ninja Foodi was used to make this recipe.


You might be wondering if instead of making my own cinnamon cream cheese, can I just use the premade cinnamon cream cheese in the grocery store?

Yes, you definitely can.  You can even change it up and use pecan-flavored, a walnut honey variation or any of your store-bought cream cheese favorites. This recipe can be switched up occasionally to make it more fun.

Yes, you can. That's actually how I was initially shown how to make these. At 350°F for 11 to 13 minutes until they're golden brown. They won't cook as quickly, but they are still quite delicious.


I like to sprinkle this on some buttered toast for a quick, easy breakfast treat. You can also sprinkle it on top of whipped cream to upgrade a latte or hot cocoa instantly.

You can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. They are best eaten freshly air fried though.
