How To Make Blueberry Biscuits In The Air Fryer
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and ground cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Use your mixer to blend in the shortening. Slowly add in your buttermilk, and mix well. Once the dough starts forming a ball, stop mixing.
Fold in the blueberries. I used my hands to get everything well blended. Flour the work surface and rolling pin and roll out the dough.
Use a 2 3/4 inch biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits. Then place the formed biscuits in a greased air fryer for 6-9 minutes at 350 degrees F, air fryer setting.
Let cool slightly before drizzling the icing over the biscuits.
FAQ About This Recipe
How Long Will These Biscuits Keep?
They usually keep for about 1 to 2 days after being placed in an airtight container and placed in the refrigerator.
They also freeze very well if you want to double the recipe or even triple the recipe. You can freeze some for later, for a quick and delicious breakfast or dessert!
Can I make These In the Oven?
Yes, anything that you make in the air fryer can usually be cooked in the oven.
To cook them, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F, and bake for about 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown.
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries For These?
Yes, my advice would to not thaw them. Toss them in frozen.
When you defrost fruit for baked goods, you run into two problems, your blueberry biscuits will end up blue, and your batter will become too watery.
Can I Add Other Fruit Besides Blueberries?
Absolutely, you can use any fruit that you have on hand. I have made these with fresh strawberries, currants, cranberries, and even a special treat for my family with chocolate chips.
What Do You Put on Biscuits?
I usually add a touch of butter or honey. But you can easily serve these with honey, whipped cream, or even lemon curd!
