Tips & Notes
No need to thaw the frozen biscuits. You can cook them directly.
Ensure some space between each biscuit when air frying them as they may stick with each other during cooking. Also keep in mind when the biscuits are frozen, they are more likely squeezed and when they heat up they expand a little.
If you have an air ferry with racks, then I would suggest using one rack only at a single time. Cook frozen biscuits on the middle rack so they are cooked more evenly. Also, use a tray while cooking on racks.

Frozen Grand biscuits can be cooked well within 10 minutes with a preheated air fryer. In this recipe, I have used Cosori Max XL Air Fryer so only 8 minutes were required for cooking.

You can also cook them without preheating. If you don’t want to preheat your air fryer you can start directly. Just increase the time from 8 minutes to 10-12 minutes at 330 F.
