Can You Put Biscuits In Air Fryer

Yes, you can cook biscuits in an air fryer! It’s a fantastic way to get fluffy, golden-brown biscuits without turning on your oven, especially on hot days or when you’re cooking for a small group. Air frying can give you a delightful texture, with a slightly crispy exterior and a soft, warm interior. Here’s how to do it:

Air Fryer Biscuits Recipe


  • Refrigerated or frozen biscuit dough (or homemade biscuit dough, if preferred)


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 330°F (about 165°C). Some air fryer models don’t require preheating, but it can help achieve more even cooking.
  2. Prepare the Biscuits: If using refrigerated dough, separate the biscuits. If using frozen biscuit dough, there’s no need to thaw them before cooking; you might just add a couple of minutes to the cooking time.
  3. Arrange in the Air Fryer: Place the biscuits in the air fryer basket, leaving some space between each to allow for expansion and air circulation. You may need to cook them in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  4. Cook: Air fry the biscuits for about 6-10 minutes for refrigerated dough, or slightly longer for frozen dough. The exact time will depend on your air fryer model and the size of the biscuits. They’re done when they’ve risen and turned golden brown.
  5. Serve: Carefully remove the biscuits from the air fryer and serve them warm. They’re perfect with butter, jam, or honey.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Biscuits

  • No Overcrowding: Ensure there’s enough space around each biscuit for proper heat circulation. This helps them cook evenly and get that desired fluffy texture.
  • Check for Doneness: Biscuits can go from perfectly golden to overdone quite quickly in an air fryer. Start checking them a minute or two before the expected cooking time ends.
  • Adjustments May Be Needed: Depending on your air fryer’s make and model, you might need to adjust cooking temperatures and times. It’s a good idea to do a test run with a single biscuit to find the perfect settings for your machine.

Cooking biscuits in an air fryer is quick, convenient, and yields delicious results. It’s an excellent method for small batches, reducing heat in the kitchen, and enjoying freshly baked biscuits any time of day.
