Total time


1 1⁄4 cup
All purpose flour (plus more for dusting)
1⁄2 cup
cake flour
3⁄4 teaspoons
Baking Powder
1⁄4 teaspoon
baking soda
1 teaspoon
granulated sugar
3⁄4 teaspoons
1⁄4 cup
unsalted butter (cold and cut into cubes)
1⁄2 cup
grated cheddar
3 tablespoons
chopped scallions
3⁄4 cups
plus 2 tbsp. buttermilk
3 tablespoons
butter (melted)
softened butter (for serving)


1. Sift the all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt into a medium-size bowl. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to work the cubed butter into the flour until the pieces are pea sized.

2. Add the cheddar and scallions and toss to combine. Add the buttermilk and use your hands or a rubber spatula to stir until the milk and flour come together to form a dough. Be careful not to overmix.

3. Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Turn the dough out onto the work surface. Use your hands to press the dough into a ½ in.-thick disk about 8 in. in diameter. Use a lightly floured 2 1/2-in. round cutter to cut out six dough rounds. Be sure to press straight down when

cutting the dough because a twisting motion will prevent the dough from rising.

4. Lightly brush the Baking Pan with a bit of the melted butter. Then, arrange the biscuits in a single layer on the Baking Pan and brush the biscuits with 1 tbsp. melted butter.

5. Slide the Pizza Rack into Shelf Position 5. Place the Baking Pan on top of the Pizza Rack. Select the Airfry setting (400°F/). Set the cooking time to 8 mins. Press the Start Button to begin the cooking cycle. Cook until the biscuits are golden brown.

6. Serve with the softened butter.
