Warm, homemade biscuits are such a treat. They can be part of a meal, like chicken and biscuits, or the best part of a breakfast sandwich. It’s tempting to just eat them with butter or jam while they’re still hot.
This recipe for homemade air fryer biscuits is so easy and so good, I bet you’ll start serving biscuits more often.

These golden-brown buttermilk biscuits are easy to whip up, and using the air fryer, they’re ready in no time. When you see how simple they are to make and how much better they taste, you won’t want to buy canned or frozen biscuits again.
Air Fryer Biscuits Recipe
You only need a few simple ingredients to make air fryer biscuits.
Roll out your biscuit dough on a floured surface, and then punch out the biscuit shapes.
Brush the tops of the biscuits with butter, and place them in the air fryer basket to cook. (You can also make these in your Ninja Foodi.)
Storing Air Fryer Biscuits
When the biscuits have completely cooled, you can store them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. They will last at room temperature for about two days, or you can refrigerate them for up to a week. You can also freeze these buttermilk biscuits, and then thaw them at room temperature when you’re ready to eat them.
How to Reheat Biscuits
To reheat biscuits in your air fryer, set the temperture to 350 degrees, and heat for two to three minutes. You may want to put some aluminum foil over the biscuits to keep them from getting too brown as you’re warming them.

Air Fryer Biscuits
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 stick of chilled butter, diced
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add diced butter to flour mixture, and with your hands, massage the butter into the flour.
Using a dough hook, knead the dough on medium speed, slowly adding the buttermilk until a dough ball forms.
Lightly dust a flat surface with flour, and flatten dough to 1 1/2 inches thick.
Using a wide mouth mason jar, or something of a similar size, punch out the biscuits. Re-knead and flatten excess dough for more biscuits.
Place biscuits in the air fryer basket, brush tops with melted butter, and cook at 370 for five minutes on each side.
Note that the butter must be chilled. If the biscuit dough starts to feel extra sticky and becomes hard to work with, put it in the refrigerator until it's cold.
