Air Fryer Biscuits

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 8 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


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add diced butter to flour mixture, and with your hands, massage the butter into the flour.
  3. Using a dough hook, knead the dough on medium speed, slowly adding the buttermilk until a dough ball forms.
  4. Lightly dust a flat surface with flour, and flatten dough to 1 1/2 inches thick.
  5. 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.
  6. Place biscuits in the air fryer basket, brush tops with melted butter, and cook at 370 for five minutes on each side.

Recipe Notes

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.
