Air Fried, Summer

Air Fried Biscuit Donut/Doughnut Recipe

This was the easiest recipe I have ever used.  It is literally biscuit dough, cookie cutters, and my air fryer.  I choose to air fry 10 times out of 10 instead of regular frying.  Regular frying is so messy, unhealthy, and leaves food so heavy.  Air frying does the exact opposite and they taste the same!  Here is a link to an air fryer that is really similar to the one I use, but really any air fryer can and should work for this recipe.  I was a little skeptical to make a glazed biscuit, because I didn’t know how the flavor combination would taste together.  The buttery biscuit and the sweet glaze work so well together and in the words of my husband “these are buttery goodness!”

Ingredients Needed:

  • Biscuit dough (I used Grands! Premade biscuits)
  • Cookie cutters
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk (or more depending on consistency you want)
  • Food coloring as desired




  1. Preheat the air fryer to about 375 degrees. Leave it running for a few minutes before you put your biscuits in.
  2. Take two biscuits, pinch them together so they are now one, and flatten them to about ½ inch thick (I did this with my hands, no need for a rolling pin).
  3. Either use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes or cut them into circles and cut out the middle for a regular donut shape.
  4. Spray/grease the bottom of the air fryer and pop in 2-3 biscuits at a time.
  5. Bake in air fryer for approximately 4-5 minutes, depending on how crisp you want them.
  6. Let cool before icing.


  1. Mix together:
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2 tbsp milk (or more depdending on consistency you want)
    • Food coloring as desired (I used a little blue and a little green!)
  2. Dunk the tops of the biscuits into the glaze
  3. Top with sprinkles if desired
