  • You must line your Air Fryer Basket with parchment paper to keep the cookie dough from falling through the holes in the basket.
  • Watch your cookies as they cook up; each air fryer’s cooking time will differ.
  • Feel free to add some diced apples to the batter! Add some raisins, pecans, and other of your favorite mix-ins!
