  • Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi


  • 8 biscuits (refrigerated)
  • air fryer safe cooking spray or oil (for fryer basket)


  • Lightly spray air fryer basket with air fryer safe cooking spray.
  • Place biscuits into air fryer basket in a single layer. The biscuits should not touch allowing enough room for them to expand.
  • On 350°, cook for approximately 7-9 minutes. I recommend that you check after 7 minutes to make sure they do not burn. You can flip them at this time but that is optional.
  • If additional cook time is needed, cook for an additional 1 minute (check each time) until you reach your desired level of crispness as needed.


Frozen Biscuits in Air Fryer: If cooking from frozen, you will want to add 1-2 minutes to your cook time and check them. You can also pull them ahead of time from the freezer.
Smaller vs Jumbo Biscuits: If cooking small biscuits, you will want to start with a cook time of about 5 minutes and then check them. Cook for another 2 minutes or so as needed.
Air Fryer Biscuit Brands: This recipe works for the large Pillsbury Grand's Biscuits (Flakey Layers, Southern Style or Homemade Buttermilk), Mary B's biscuits, Kroger Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits, Great Value Buttermilk Biscuits, Rhodes Bake-n-Serve biscuits, Food Club Biscuits, Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Frozen Biscuits, Bisquick biscuits, Tennesee Pride sausage biscuits and Morning Fresh Farms Buttermilk Biscuits.

Air Fryer Tips:
  • Don't crowd your biscuits
  • Aluminum foil or parchment paper is not recommended for this recipe. Air flow will allow for a more evenly cooked biscuit.
