What Are Biscuit Donuts?
Have you ever heard of biscuit donuts? They are a type of pastry that is made from biscuit dough that are either deep=fried, or air-fried and shaped into a donut shape. Biscuit donuts are often coated in a sugar or cinnamon-sugar mixture and served with butter or jam. They are popular in the Southern United States, where they are known as “biscuits and gravy” donuts.
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Vanilla Glazed Biscuit Donuts

How To Make Air Fryer Vanilla Glazed Biscuit Donuts
Start by preparing the biscuit dough for the air fryer. Today, I used Trader Joe’s Biscuits, I find that they are sweeter, if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, then my second favorite is Buttermilk Biscuits.
Open up the package, then, use a biscuit cutter and cut out the middle. You can either make the holes into one big donut, as well as, use these later to make mini donuts, munchkins.
Then, spray your air fryer basket with olive oil spray, do not use non-stick spray on your basket. Then, place your biscuit dough (I needed to do it in 2 batches, as you don’t want them crowded)
Lastly, set the temperature to 350 degrees F, for 5 minutes. Then, after 5 minutes, remove the biscuits, place on a cutting board, and place the second batch in the air fryer basket.
Meanwhile in a small mixing bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Mix well, until everything is well blended. Then, mix well. Wait a few minutes, until the donuts are cooled, and then spread the vanilla frosting on the donuts.
How To Store:
The best way to make air fryer biscuit donuts is the same day you want to eat them. Nothing is better than a fresh donut, straight from the air fryer. A great advantage of the air fryer is you can make one donut or ten donuts. So, if you want two donuts make two donuts. Place any unused biscuit dough into a sealed container or Ziploc bag, for later.

Any Tips to Make The Best Biscuit Donuts?
Way before the rage of the air fryers, grandmothers in the South were making biscuit donuts in a skillet. With lots and lots of oil. I found after about two years of playing with biscuit donuts, that if you dredge them into melted butter, before placing them into the air fryer, they come out SO much better.
How Do You Heat Up A Donut In An Air Fryer?
Everyone loves a warm donut, but who has time to heat one up in an oven? Not to worry, your air fryer can do the trick!
Place your donuts into the air fyrer basket and set the temperuar efor 300 degrees F, anad heat until your dounuts are warmed up! This will work with either homemade or store-bough donuts!
How Do You Cut Donuts Without A Donut Cutter?
Donuts are delicious, but they can be a pain to cut. Without a donut cutter, it can be difficult to get that perfect shape.
You can always use a bottlecap or a small round object. I love my biscuit cutters, and they come in really handy when cooking with the air fyrer!
