Tips and Tricks

  • Only use Olive Oil – Do not use Pam cooking spray in an oven style air fryer as this spray will damage the air fryer basket style. You can also line your air fryer with parchment paper.
  • No need to flip biscuits – I did not flip the biscuits dough while they were cooking as the air is able to get all around the biscuits in the basket. If your air fryer cooks hotter on one side, then I would flip the biscuits half way through the cook time.
  • Any type of biscuits will work – I used buttermilk biscuits for this recipe. However, you can also use this recipe to make Grands or Flakey Layer Biscuits as well.
  • Reduce cooking time for smaller biscuits – If you use smaller biscuits, cook them in the air fryer at 330 degrees F for 4-5 minutes until they are golden brown. Cooking time will vary depending on the size.
  • Top your biscuits – For a savory biscuit, top your biscuits with garlic butter or kosher salt when they come out of the air fryer.

How long do you put Biscuits in the Air Fryer?

Preheat you air fryer for about 5 minutes prior to putting the biscuits in the air fryer. Once you air fryer is heated, place biscuits and heat for 5-7 minutes.
