These Air Fryer Biscuits are a quick, homemade alternative to the store bought version. They are so easy but taste so good, they really elevate any dish, so make them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  This is one of my all time favorite air fryer recipes.

Air Fryer Biscuits, especially the buttermilk are my favorite bread to serve hot from the oven. They are great for on the go breakfast sandwiches, a side for soup or even a quick slider sandwich.  This are an easy homemade alternative to refrigerated biscuits, such as Pillsbury Grands biscuits or frozen biscuits.

Expert Tips for Making Biscuits

  • Add Cheese: A great Parmesan or Cheddar are fabulous in these biscuits.
  • Handling: The less you handle or work the dough the better the result.
  • Variation tip: Feel free to add fresh or dried herbs to the biscuits. for example: garlic, chives, rosemary.
  • Cold is Best: Freeze the butter after dicing while you do the rest of the recipe. it provides great lift and flavor.
  • Sharp Edges: Most bakers say that a sharp cutter allows for a better rise as you do not squish the sides.
  • Close: Biscuit should touch while baking. this allows the tops to get golden but the middles to stay soft and fluffy.
