Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to use Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough in the air fryer?

Nope! You can use any refrigerated cookie dough, no matter what the variety. These steps will work for virtually all Pillsbury cookie recipes and even generic brands.

Actually, you can air fry cookie dough that is homemade as well. If you make homemade air fryer cookies, I recommend you refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes before air frying so that you’re still using refrigerated cookie dough.

Why make cookies in the air fryer?

Making Pillsbury cookies in the air fryer is incredibly easy, and you don’t have to heat up your house. Plus, if you just want a couple of cookies, it’s easier to make a small batch. The texture of air fryer chocolate chip cookies is great too!

How do you store leftover air fryer Pillsbury cookies?

After you are done making the cookies in the air fryer, place them on a wire rack to cool. Once they are all the way cool, place them in a sealed container. They will last 3-4 days at room temperature.

You can also freeze these air fryer cookies too. After they have cooled, put them in a freezer bag, and they will last 2-3 months.
