These classic Air Fryer Red Velvet Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies are soft and chewy, with a sugary crust, and in the center of each cookie, is adorned with a solid milk chocolate kiss.
As a child, my mother would often make a batch of regular peanut butter blossom cookies, often presenting them at family holidays. They were soft and tender, and everyone had a prize of a chocolate kiss at the center. I loved the combination of chocolate and peanut butter together, all in one bite.
Today, I used a simple red velvet cookie dough and came up with these, they are still soft, and the chocolate flavor comes out.
If you like cookies as much as I do, the air fryer is the perfect place to make a batch of homemade cookies. My favorite recipes are Air Fryer Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies or even my mother’s Italian Cookie Recipe. Same great flavors as when my mother made them in an oven. They do cook so much faster, and no need to wait for the oven to preheat. Perfectly baked in the air fryer!

Some Common Questions Asked About This Recipe
Pro Tips For Making Air Fryer Red Velvet Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
- The air fryer does a great job of making cookies crisp. Watch them as soon as they start to crisp up, remove them; they will harden as they cool.
- For best results, do not preheat your air fryer. Otherwise, the dough will runoff.
- Keep the dough cool in between batches by putting the dough into the refrigerator.
- Wait for your tray or air fryer basket to cool before running a second batch.
- If you are having trouble putting the candy kiss in the middle without the cookie breaking apart, put the candy into the refrigerator before placing it in the middle.
Can I bake with Air Fryer?
Yes, baking is perfect in the air fryer, especially for small batches. Making or baking food in the air fryer is faster because you no longer need to wait for the oven to preheat.
And the air fryer works by circulating hot air all around the food, which means that every baked good is perfectly cooked.
Can You Put Aluminum Foil and Parchment Paper in the Air Fryer?
Depending on which model air fryer you own (always remember to check your owner’s manual first, since every air fryer is different), you can or can not use parchment paper or foil in your air fryer.
If you can use foil, make sure that it’s appropriately weighted down so that the aluminum foil does not blow into the heating element, causing damage or a safety hazard.
I typically use parchment paper for baking, the parchment paper is the best suited for allowing the airflow around the air fryer, and I find that the food cooks up more evenly.
How To Bake Cookies In An Air Fryer
Depending on which air fryer you own, either basket or oven. For the range, I usually put my dough directly on the drip tray.
If you have an air fryer basket, you will want to purchase from air fryer parchment paper for cookies, which is perfect. Then just cut the piece to size. The paper that you are buying will be based on the individual air fryer that you own.
How To Store Air Fryer Red Velvet Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
These cookies are best when eaten fresh, within a day or two after being baked or air-fried.
They will last for about a week; place the leftover cookies into an airtight container and place the container in the refrigerator or on the counter.
How to Warm Up Air Fryer Cookies
If you want to heat them 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.
