So yesterday was a snow day, which really lent its hand to baking. My kids are huge fans of cookies. So, I whipped up this batch and enjoyed a plate of homemade air fryer-baked cookies. We love cookies and pair them with a cold glass of milk, and you have a great afternoon or evening dessert.

How To Make Air Fryer Lemon Cake Mix Cookies
In a large bowl mix together the cake mix, oil, and egg, and mix well.
Use your cookie scoop and scoop about 1-2 tablespoons of batter, roll into a ball, and then roll into the powdered sugar. Either line your basket with parchment paper or place the dough onto the drip tray. Set the temperature to 320 degrees F, air fryer setting for 5-6 minutes.
HOW DOES AN AIR FRYER BAKE?
The air fryer and a convectional oven actually operate pretty much the same. The hot air circulates in the air fryer basket. While the hot air is circulating around the basket, the cookie is crisping up.
This means an even cooking temperature in the air fryer. This means that cookies do really well since they are cooking from the outside in. This causes the cookies to stay moist inside while crisping up on the outside.
CAN I BAKE COOKIES IN THE AIR FRYER BASKET?
Yes, you really can quite easily. You need to pick up an Air Fryer Parchment Paper package made just for air fryer cookie baking. It does not have holes. This means that you need to line the basket with the paper and weigh it down accordingly.
Place the cookies around the paper so that there is no chance that the parchment paper will blow into the heating element.
CAN I BAKE COOKIES IN THE NINJA FOODIE?
Yes, follow the directions above, and line your basket. I did find that you will probably want to check your cookies about halfway.
The Ninja Foodie’s Design causes most baked goods to cook faster than other air fryers. So, check frequently so you do not end up with a plate of burnt cookies.
HOW TO WARM UP AIR FRYER COOKIES
If you want to heat them up, for the family, I put mine in for 2 to 3 minutes at 300 degrees F, or until warmed. Great for a special treat for the family.
