  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk, cold

 

Instructions

Get Your Air Fryer Ready: Warm up your air fryer for about 5 minutes at 400°F (200°C). To keep things from sticking, lightly grease the air fryer basket or line it with parchment paper.

Mix the dry ingredients: Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a large bowl and whisk them together until they are well mixed.

The butter should be added slowly. Cube the cold butter and add it to the flour mixture. Cut the butter into the flour with your fingers, a pastry cutter, or two forks until the mixture looks like big crumbs.

The pieces of butter should be about the size of peas. Put in the buttermilk. Add the cold buttermilk to the flour mix. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to stir the dough slowly until it just comes together. Do not mix the dough too much; it should have some shaggy parts and be sticky.

Knead the Dough: Flour a surface and put the dough on it. A few light kneads should be enough to make it stick together. Shape the dough into a rectangle that is about 1/2 inch thick.

Fold and Pat: First, fold the dough in half. Then, pat it out again until it’s 1/2 inch thick. Do these steps of folding and patting two or three times more. This gives the biscuits layers that make them extra flaky.

Cut Out Biscuits: To make biscuits, use a round biscuit cutter or a glass to cut the dough into biscuit shapes. To make sure the biscuits rise evenly, press down straight down without twisting. Make more biscuits by putting together any scraps in a gentle way.

Stack in Air Fryer: Put the biscuits in the air fryer basket so they don’t touch each other. They should be in a single layer. Depending on how big your air fryer is, you might have to cook them one at a time.

Air fry: Put the biscuits in an oven set to 400°F (200°C) and cook them for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are golden brown and fully cooked. Every so often, check on them and turn the basket around if necessary to make sure they cook evenly.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Buttermilk Biscuits

Keep the ingredients cold. For flaky biscuits, you need cold butter and buttermilk. For an extra cold start, you can even put the bowl and flour in the fridge.

Don’t Overmix: If you mix the dough too much, the biscuits will be tough. Mix the ingredients together just enough so that the dough stays together.

Light Touch: Be careful not to handle the dough too roughly when you’re kneading and cutting it so that it keeps its light and flaky texture.

Warm up the air fryer. This will make sure that the biscuits cook right away and rise properly.

See if it’s done. The time it takes to cook can vary depending on the model of air fryer you have. Check on the biscuits a few minutes before they’re done cooking to make sure they don’t get too brown.

Notes

Keep any extra biscuits in a container that won’t let air in for up to two days at room temperature. Put them in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for up to three months to keep them longer. To make them crisp again, heat them in the oven or air fryer.

Changes: To make it more savory, you can add chopped herbs, shredded cheese, or crumbled bacon to the dough. If you want a sweeter cookie, add a little vanilla extract and more sugar, about two to three tablespoons.
