Air Fryer Homemade Biscuits

Pass the biscuits please! Follow this recipe for 8 minute biscuits. Thats right, you will have traditional style biscuits in as little as 8 minutes using the air fryer convention technique. If you do not have an oven handy, have plans to be on the road or live in a dorm you will definitely enjoy having fresh made biscuits that your grandma would love anytime anywhere. I have worked over time to make a recipe for biscuits that my very traditional southern husband loves to eat. I have tweaked that method a bit to fit the air fryer and it works. In the south making a good biscuit can make you a legend in your own family. Soft filling comfort food that is great served with honey, butter or my kids favorite, with sausage gravy. If you have never had a good homemade biscuit, you should watch the video and follow the detailed instructions below to find out for your self what all the fuss is about.

Traditional food from the different regions of the world are largely based on what type of ingredients are available there and what the culture is like. Soft fluffy southern style biscuits are no exception as flour is used heavily in southern style foods from fried food to gravy, you will likely find flour somewhere near the cooking area as an enhancement to the food experience. No better way to experience what flour can do than having a delicious warm biscuit with some eggs and bacon to fill the eat. My favorite way to enjoy a fresh made biscuit is to cover it with some local honey and butter, it goes great with morning coffee or as a standalone snack.

Fluffy homemade biscuits

In a large bowl: combine flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and COLD butter. Use a pastry cutter or your hand to mix until it begins to form coarse crumbs.

Add milk and knead the dough in the bowl for a few minutes. The dough will be sticky at first but once you knead everything it will be fine. If the dough is still sticky add 1 tbsp of flour and knead until it is no longer sticky.

Transfer the dough to a floured surface. Pat the dough out to ¾” to 1″ thick.

Use a biscuit cutter or glass to shape the biscuits. You should have 9-10 biscuits.

Preheat the air fryer to 380°F.

Place the biscuits in the air fryer basket and cook for 8 mintues or until golden brown on top. (Depending on the size of your air fryer: repeat this step as necessary).

Optional: brush melted butter or honey over the top of the biscuits. Serve immediately and enjoy!
