Set the air fryer to 400°F. Spray the air fryer basket with oil or line it with foil.
On a cutting board prepare the sandwiches. Take the Peanut Butter and Jelly cutter tool and use it according to the instructions. For my model, I cut the bread into circles first and then spread the fillings after.
On one slice of bread, spread peanut butter evenly over the center of the bread, leaving a rim for sealing.
On the other slice of bread, spread the jelly evenly over the center of the bread, leaving a rim for sealing.
Put the two slices of bread together with the peanut butter and jelly facing in.
Spread a thin layer of butter on the outside of sandwiches.
Place sealed sandwiches into the fryer basket.
Air-fry the sandwich at 400°F until golden brown and crispy, 4 to 5 minutes.
Let cool slightly, cut in half, then serve the air fryer peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with some ice cream for a delicious dessert treat.
