The BEST Air Fryer Biscuits (Canned + Refrigerated)

  • Author: Matt
  • Total Time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Batch 1x


Air fryer biscuits are hot, steaming, flaky, and golden brown – sheer perfection for your breakfast table. Serve with butter and jam, or eat as is!



1 can Refrigerated Biscuits




Preheat the air fryer

  • First up, you’ll want to preheat the air fryer. This gets it up to temp so every batch of biscuits you make comes out perfect each time.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 330 degrees F and program the total cooking time to 10 minutes.
  • Once the air fryer is preheated, break open the can of biscuits and place them in a single layer in the air fryer basket.

Note: As long as your basket is non-stick, no cooking spray is needed. If you have issues with sticking, cut parchment paper to fit the basket, and cut slits or holes in the bottom to allow the hot air to circulate evenly. Place the paper into the basket once the unit has preheated, then add your biscuits.

Air fry yourself some biscuits!

  • Let the air fryer cook away for 4-5 minutes, then open it long enough to flip each of the biscuits over. Let the cook time continue for another 2-3 minutes and check again.
  • When they’re golden brown, you can pull them out and you’ll have perfectly cooked biscuits that are ready to grace your breakfast table.
  • Allow the biscuits to cool slightly at room temperature, as they’ll be piping hot when you pull them from the air fryer. Serve with jam, butter, or gravy, or enjoy plain.

Note: Different air fryers will work differently, so you want to keep an eye on your biscuits during the last few minutes of cooking time. If you have an air fryer with racks, use the center rack, or use both and rotate them halfway through cooking time.

What about homemade air fryer biscuits?

Let’s say you carefully measured out dry ingredients, whipped up your flour mixture, and pulled out your handy dandy pastry cutter or biscuit cutter to make some mouthwatering Brenda Gantt biscuits. But you already have something cooking in the oven and there’s no time to cool the oven down enough to bake biscuits in time for your breakfast casserole.

Never fear, the air fryer is here! Follow the recipe above, just as if you had a can of refrigerated biscuits and you’re good to go. Keep an eye on them as they cook, and pull them as soon as they’re golden brown.
