Why Make Them?

  • Air Fryer biscuits are perfect for busy holiday meals when there is no more room for anything else in the oven.
  • It is much faster to make them in the air fryer. You can cook them before the time it takes to preheat the oven.
  • Perfect for making them in the summer when it’s too hot to turn the oven on.
  • They are great for a quick breakfast sandwich before work or school.
  • The air fryer makes the crusts nice and crispy, and the insides are soft, fluffy layers.

General Air Frying Tips

  • **IMPORTANT!** Air fryers cook at varying degrees and have different wattages, so always consult your owner’s manual before using any of the tips below! Some Air Fryers recommend not using cooking sprays.
  • Air fryers cook at different wattages. Therefore, some may take more or less time to cook any recipe. Watch food carefully when first trying a recipe to make sure food doesn’t overcook or burn.
  • Preheating the air fryer gives you a crispier outside with little or no added oil.
  • Use a non-stick spray instead of oil to control the amount of fat in your food.
  • Spray the inside of your air fryer with no stick, or wipe it with oil on a paper towel for easy cleanup.
  • Some foods, such as Air Fryer Doughnuts and Air Fryer Meatballs, need no added oil.
  • Line the tray with aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Some air fryer manufacturers suggest using aluminum foil on the lower tray to assist with cleanup. Read your manual carefully before using foil!
  • Always spray the rack with non-stick spray for easy cleanup.
  • Use higher temperatures for quick-cooking foods and lower temperatures for slower food.
  • Cut foods in uniform sizes for more even cooking.

What You Need

  • Prepared Biscuits: You can use refrigerated biscuits from the store or make fresh biscuits at home.
  • No-stick Spray: Use spray to keep them from sticking to the air fryer basket.

How to Make Them

Step One:

Preheat the air fryer to 350°F for 3-5 minutes.

Spray your air fryer basket with no-stick spray. Check your manufacturer’s recommendations. Some brands advise not to use no-stick on the basket.

Step Two:

Arrange the biscuits in the basket. Don’t let the edges touch because they need room to rise. Place them in a single layer.

Air fry for about six to seven minutes for Pillsbury Grands biscuits. Remove the basket from the air fryer with pot holders.

Step Three:

Carefully flip each biscuit with tongs.

Flip them gently. Since they are partially cooked, they will still be a bit doughy.

Step Four:

Continue to air fry for one to three minutes until the biscuits are golden brown.

Should I Use Parchment Paper?

Unlike some air fryer dough recipes, like these air fryer doughnuts, you don’t want to use parchment paper with biscuits. You want all of the edges to get crispy. You will need to turn them over gently; they are partially cooked when you flip them, so they will be a bit doughy.

Storage, Freezing, and Reheating

Storage: Store leftover biscuits in a freezer bag or similar airtight container on the counter. There is no need to refrigerate them.

Freezing: Although you can freeze them once they are cooked, we don’t recommend it. They either get soggy or dried out and tough.

Reheating: Warm them in the air fryer for 3-4 minutes until they are hot. You can reheat them in the microwave for about 15 seconds, but they won’t be as crispy.

How to Serve Biscuits

  • Breakfast: Biscuits are delicious for breakfast. Serve slathered with butter and topped with honey or grape jelly.
  • Breakfast Sandwich: Make a quick breakfast sandwich with leftover bacon or sausage and a scrambled egg, and top it with cheese for a complete breakfast sandwich.
  • Stews: Biscuits are the perfect vessel to soak up the gravy from a stew or make Southern fried chicken biscuits and gravy.
  • Soups: Use biscuits to dunk into any soup, like this venison soup, for lunch or dinner.
  • Side Dish: They are the perfect side dish for the holidays. They go well with turkey, ham, and beef.

Pro Tips for Your Success

  • Cook biscuits in a single layer with a little space between them. If all of the biscuits won’t fit in your air fryer at once, make them in batches.
  • Spray the biscuits with non-stick spray or use a pastry brush to brush them with melted butter.
  • You can cook biscuits from frozen too. They will take an extra 2-5 minutes to cook.
  • A couple of minutes before the biscuits are done, brush them with melted butter for an extra buttery flavor.
