Easy Air Fryer Cookies

 If you’re looking for a quick, sweet snack, you’ve got to try this simple yet tasty air fryer cookies recipe that doesn’t take long to make.

Can You Make Cookies in the Air Fryer?

The air fryer is such a convenient kitchen appliance. If you don’t have one, it’s a good time to get one. Not only can you cook meats, fries, and other sides in your air fryer, but you can also use it to prepare these delicious Air Fryer Cookies.

When you’re in the mood for a sweet snack but you don’t feel like putting on the oven and waiting for it to heat up, you can use this recipe to your advantage.

You’ll line your air fryer with parchment paper and let the cookies cook for a minimum of five minutes and a maximum of eight minutes. It’s that simple!

Do I need to make cookie dough from scratch?

If you’re worried about making cookie dough from scratch, the good news is that you don’t have to do so. You’ll use a box of yellow cake mix to create these cookies.

It doesn’t matter which brand you choose, but Betty Crocker is always a great choice. Besides the cake mix, you’ll only need a handful of other ingredients, such as vegetable oil, sprinkles, and eggs.

With these ingredients, you’ll make a flavorful dough that will transform in the air fryer to slightly crispy, slightly fluffy cookies. The perfect combination!

Can I use other cake mixes?

When you use the yellow boxed cake mix, you’re preparing vanilla cookies that taste great with sprinkles. However, you can use this simple recipe to prepare other types of cookies using assorted boxed cake mixes.

Chocolate, lemon, strawberry, and red velvet are just a few of the many flavors you’ll get to make!
