Colder dough is easier, so as soon as it comes out of the refrigerator I set them out on a cutting board so I am ready to go. This is for separating the biscuits.
The warmer dough is best for smashing, so let it come to room temperature.
Buttermilk biscuits work best.
As the air fryer cooks batch after batch it gets faster so you may need to decrease the time by one minute.
That’s it, enjoy my Delicious Cinnamon Sugar Air Fryer Donuts any day of the week! Lavishly live food out loud.
