Notes

Ensure that the butternut puree is at room temperature before using.

Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket with the biscuits for the best results.

If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make it by taking a cup of all-purpose flour and adding 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder along with a ¼ teaspoon of salt to make one cup of self-rising flour. Even though I suggest self-rising flour.

If your biscuits aren’t cooked after 15 minutes, add additional time.

If no air fryer, bake in the oven.

This is my air fryer!
