  • 8 ounce can crescent roll sheet
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter melted
  • ¼ cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 300 degrees F.
  • Unroll crescent dough onto a large cutting board into a flat rectangle.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut the crescent dough in half the short way, and then into 1-inch strips.
  • Tie/fold each strip into a knot.
  • Place 5 to 6 knots (or more depending on your air fryer) at a time in the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the knots from the air fryer and place them on a cooling rack. Continue cooking until all are cooked.
  • In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
  • Brush the melted butter mixture onto the knots and serve warm


I use the Cosori 8.5 quart air fryer, so depending on your air fryer size you may be able to cook more knots at a time.
These can also be baked in the oven at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
