Air Fryer Cheddar Biscuits with Garlic Butter
Here’s a very simple biscuit dough that’s formed into a rustic biscuit shape
and then baked in the air fryer.
The key to preventing them from sticking to the
air fryer basket is to coat the basket with cooking spray and to get a good
layer of flour on the bottom as you shape them. When they come out, brush these
beautiful browned biscuits with melted Cabot Salted Butter and garlic salt.
- 1 1/2 cups King Arthur All-Purpose Flour, plus more for dusting
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
- 6 tablespoons melted Cabot Salted Butter, divided
- 1/2 cup shredded Cabot Vermont Sharp or Seriously Sharp Cheddar
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- Whisk flour baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk egg,
buttermilk and 4 tablespoons of melted butter in a second bowl. Stir the
wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until some flour remains. Add
the cheese and stir until the cheese is combined and flour is
incorporated. Do not overmix.
- Dust work surface generously with flour. Mound biscuit dough on the
work surface, in a rough rectangle, about 6-inches long by 4-inches
wide. Sprinkle with more flour and pat to an even thickness. Flour a
knife and cut into six biscuits.
- Coat air fryer basket bottom and sides generously with cooking
spray. Carefully transfer the biscuits to the basket, making sure they
are equally spaced.
- Air fry the biscuits at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes.
- Remove from the air fryer. Note: They will have expanded and may be
attached but can easily be broken into individual biscuits.
- Mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter with garlic
salt. Brush over the hot biscuits and serve warm.
