Air Fryer Cookies – make your favorite chocolate chip cookies in just minutes in the air fryer. The perfect crispy edges and gooey center!

You know when you get those cravings for a warm, gooey, fresh out of the oven cookie, but don’t want to actually bake a full batch of cookies? Yeah, that is the time to make these air fryer cookies.

I will get it right out there in the beginning, you are not going to use your air fryer to make a full batch of cookies. That is just not a good use of anyone’s time or resources. Not only will you have to listen to your air fryer forever, it would just be a huge pain.

But if you have cookie dough in your freezer, or you buy pre-made dough from the store and want to just make a couple cookies, this is the method! These Bisquick Cookies would be perfect!

Air fryer cookies are thick, get nice crispy edges, and stay gooey and delicious in the center.

How To Bake Cookies In Air Fryer

  1. Line your air fryer with parchment paper. You really want to use parchment paper and not foil, as the air circulates much better and your cookies will be more evenly cooked.
  2. Preheat the air fryer to 300º.
  3. Arrange 4 balls of dough, evenly spaced, and cook for 7 minutes.
  4. After 7 minutes, check your cookies and see if they need 1-2 minutes longer. Depending on the size of your cookies, they will likely be done at 7 minutes.

  • Use parchment paper to line your air fryer basket. You don’t want to use foil because you will not get enough air circulating. And you really need to line with something or the dough will slip through the holes.
  • Your favorite cookie dough will work great, so use it! I have a recipe below that is my favorite (Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough), but you don’t have to use it. It is more of a method that anything.
  • Cooking at 300º seems low, but trust me it is what you want when using the air fryer. If you cook higher your cookies will get very dark on the outside and stay more raw in the middle. 300º is the balance to get crispy edge and a cooked center that is still gooey and delicious.
  • If you want flatter cookies, make sure to press them down gently before starting to cook them. Because they cook so quickly, they will not flatten much as they cook.
  • Next time you make cookies, make a double batch and freezer the dough. I always scoop balls of dough onto a baking sheet and the put in the freezer for a couple hours until the balls are frozen. Then store them in a freezer safe plastic bag. Then you can just take out a couple balls of dough to make these cookies.

I know there are people who are going to say using your air fryer for cookies is crazy, but trust me. If you like a warm, thick, and gooey cookie this will get it for you in just minutes!

I love that I can make just a couple cookies in minutes, and don’t have to turn on the oven for it. So much faster and just down right crave worthy.

  1. I dont’ have an air fryer, but looking at these cookies makes me rethink getting one! How great and versatile an AF is!

  2. I love this! Is there an air fryer time change if the cookie dough is frozen? Thanks! Rochelle in Loveland CO

    1. Not really because the balls of dough are so small. Sometimes it can take 1 minute more. I just open the air fryer and check for how browned they are an add another minute or call them done.
