Tips and Tricks

  • Turn the biscuits over halfway through for an even cook.
  • Only cook a single layer of biscuits at a time. If you stack them, the air fryer biscuits will not cook through correctly.
  • If you have an oven-type air fryer with racks, use the middle rack.

Reheating Instructions

  • 1 Refrigerated Can of Flaky Biscuits


  • Remove the refrigerated biscuits from the can. Place the biscuits in the air fryer. (parchment or oiling the basket is optional).
  • Air Fry biscuits at 330F/165C for 9-10 minutes. Flip the biscuits over, half way through the cook time. (Be sure to check the biscuits in the last few minutes to see if you need to adjust the cook time.)
  • Carefully remove the biscuits and serve with jam or gravy. Enjoy!


  • Be sure to turn the biscuits over half way through the cooking time. This will help the biscuits to cook evenly.
  • Only cook a single layer of biscuits at a time. Do not stack the biscuits.
  • If you have an oven type air fryer with racks, we suggest that you use the middle rack to cook this recipe.
  • You can cook two racks at a time, but you most rotate the racks mid way through the cooking to ensure all biscuits are cooked evenly.
  • Remember each air fryer runs a bit different, watch your biscuits and check on them. You may need to adjust the time.

    WOW, those biscuits look so crispy and delicious. Wish I could grab one through the screen. Thanks for the idea to make these in the air fryer – I am definitely going to try soon.

  5. Ours turned out good but I was wondering, we have a bake setting on our air fryer and I wondered if I should use air fryer or bake mode?

    1. Hi Lisa! We used the air fry setting on ours, but people in our FB group have used the bake setting. If you find that it comes out a little too brown or too crunchy on top with the air fry setting, switch it over to the bake setting 🙂
