Can You Put Frozen Biscuits In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook frozen biscuits in an air fryer, and it’s a great method for achieving a golden, crispy exterior with a soft, warm center. Air frying frozen biscuits is quick, convenient, and doesn’t require preheating your oven. Here’s how to do it:

Air Fryer Frozen Biscuits Recipe


  • Frozen biscuits (no need to thaw)


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 340°F (about 170°C). Although some models do not require preheating, doing so can help ensure the biscuits cook evenly.
  2. Arrange the Biscuits: Place the frozen biscuits in the air fryer basket, leaving some space between each to allow for proper air circulation. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches.
  3. Cook: Air fry the biscuits for about 10-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. The exact time can vary depending on the air fryer model and the size of the biscuits. It’s a good idea to start checking them a bit earlier since cooking times can vary.
  4. Serve: Once the biscuits are golden brown and have risen, carefully remove them from the air fryer and serve warm with butter, jam, or your favorite biscuit toppings.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Frozen Biscuits

  • No Overcrowding: To ensure the biscuits cook evenly and get a nice rise, don’t overcrowd the basket. Air flow is key to achieving that desirable texture.
  • Adjust Cooking Time as Needed: Depending on your air fryer’s make and model, you might need to adjust the cooking time. Keep an eye on the biscuits the first time you try this to determine the perfect timing for your appliance.
  • Check for Doneness: The biscuits are done when they have a golden-brown exterior and feel firm to the touch. If you’re unsure, you can lightly open one biscuit to ensure it’s cooked through.
  • Preventing Burned Bottoms: If you find the bottoms of the biscuits are cooking too quickly, you can place a small piece of aluminum foil or parchment paper (specifically designed for air fryers) under the biscuits to shield them slightly. However, ensure it doesn’t block airflow.

Cooking frozen biscuits in an air fryer is an efficient way to enjoy freshly “baked” biscuits without the need to preheat an oven or deal with a baking tray. This method saves time and energy, making it ideal for a quick breakfast or side dish.
