How To Make Biscuits In Air Fryer

You don't need to make a fuss to whip up these biscuits in air fryer. The recipe is easy and the ingredients are simple. Plus, you only need 25 minutes!

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 25 mins


  • 2 cup self-rising flour, plus ¼ cup for flouring the board and biscuit cutter
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp. shortening, cut into small pieces
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted for topping


  1. Add flour, cut butter, and cut shortening and use a pastry cutter or fingers to mix in butter and shortening. The flour mixture should still have chunks of butter and shortening that are the size of small peas.

  2. Make a space in the middle of the bowl and pour in the buttermilk. Use a wooden spoon and mix the flour and buttermilk until it is combined and is a soft and sticky dough.
  3. Flour a clean countertop (about 2 tablespoons of flour), marble slab, or large cutting board and pour the dough onto it. Flour hands and gently knead the dough one or two times until it’s smooth. Pat the dough out into a square that’s about ¾ of an inch thick.

  4. Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter, flour it, and cut out biscuits. There should be about 8 biscuits.

  5. Optional step: Place biscuits in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to ensure they stay cold.

  6. Place biscuits on an air fryer parchment sheet liners (or a piece of parchment paper cut to fit your air fryer) about 1 inch apart. Place in air fryer basket and air fry on 400 degrees F for 9 to 10 minutes and golden on top. Brush with melted butter and serve.
