– Baking cookies in the air fryer is the next big thing. That’s right, you heard it here first. If you’re gonna let this big, old appliance take up all your counter space, you might as well find some good uses for it.
And this happens to be a pretty great idea. Let’s give it a try, shall we? Just get the pre-packaged, pre-portioned cookie dough. I don’t know if you really have to preheat it. I’m gonna do 350 because that’s what they would back at in the oven.
Then, I’m gonna set it for eight minutes and let myself have a minute to preheat. I’m gonna do these for about seven minutes. You can check them midway through. Key tip, you need to lay down a little piece of parchment into your air fryer basket.
If you don’t put that there, the cookie dough just drips to the bottom. I’m gonna set the cookies in. We’re gonna have cookies soon. Go grab your milk. (beeping) It’s been almost five minutes. So we gotta give it a check.
The good thing is you can peak. Looking good, but you can tell they’re not quite done. Patience. (beeping) I’m gonna go get some milk. ♪ Cookie time ♪ ♪ It’s cookie time ♪ ♪ It’s cookie time ♪ (beeping) Actually, I don’t know if they’re done.
Going back one more minute. (beeping) I think it if wouldn’t have opened them so many times. (beeping) So really, it’s about the same time it takes in the oven. Baking directions are 10 to 14 minutes.
You know, you might save two minutes, three minutes. But you do have to take into effect that you don’t have to wait on your oven to preheat. I like my cookies kind of crispy on the outside, chewy and a little bit like under done on the inside.
Some people like ’em all the way crispy. Okay, I feel like I should stop. It’s been eight and 1/2 minutes. (beeping) Now those look perfect. Look at those. They’re a little soft now, ’cause they have to sit for just a second.
But these are gonna be perfect, trust me. I’ve been very patient. They’ve cooled for a couple minutes and I think they’re perfect. Let’s prove it. Look at that. Perfect on the outside, perfect on the inside.
That’s what I’m talking about. Number one, you can make smaller batches of cookies. If you just want two or three to bake late at night while you’re watching “This Is Us” with a glass of wine, perfect.
Number two, clean up is a breeze. Actually, there will be no clean up. Number three, these take less time to cook. I mean, 11 minutes, start to finish, you’ve got perfectly baked cookies, including cooling time.
Close your oven and head to the sofa. Hmm, that’s good.
