Air Fryer Baking Tips

Not all ovens are alike and that also applies to air fryers. Just because my cookies were done perfectly in 5 minutes doesn’t mean yours will be. Yours might take 4 minutes or they might take 7! Just keep an eye on them and you’ll see when they’re done because they’ll be crisp and golden.

I use parchment paper for air fryer baking. There’s nothing worse than when you don’t grease or line the air fryer basket and your food sticks!

How to Serve Air Fryer Cookies

How to cookies still warm from the oven (or, in this case, air fryer) sound to you? If the very thought is making your mouth water, you’re not alone! When your cookies are done, switch the air fryer off and open the basket. Let them sit in there on the parchment paper for 5 minutes (you don’t want to bite into molten chocolate) before eating.

Once you know how easy baking cookies in an air fryer is, you will want to rustle up a batch often.

Air Fryers Cook Cookies Evenly

Another great thing about easy air fryer chocolate chip cookies is they cook evenly. Air fryers cook by circulating hot air so theoretically foods should cook evenly all over. I say theoretically because there are always variables! But you don’t have to flip these halfway through the cooking time or anything.
