Air fryer cookie dough

If you are like me and tend to have at least one package of Pillsbury cookie dough (or one of your favorites) in the fridge at all times, then you need this Air Fryer Refrigerated Cookie Dough Cookies recipe on hand.

When you use the air fryer, you won’t have to wait to preheat it like you would an oven, you can simply pop the cookies in the air fryer and have air fryer chocolate chip cookies in less than 10 minutes.

Talk about a way to satisfy that sweet tooth in no time at all. Plus you can make these in small batches of cookies, just when you need a delicious golden brown cookie.

Ingredients and Supplies You’ll Need to Make this Air Fryer Refrigerated Cookie Dough Cookies:

  • Prepackaged and refrigerated cookie dough


Types of cookie dough make

Basically, if it is a package you can find in the grocery store’s refrigerated section it will work. But here are my favorite store-bought flavors to make.

  1. Chocolate chip cookie dough (I especially love the chocolate lovers edition)
  2. Sugar cookies
  3. Sprinkle sugar cookies
  4. Snickerdoodle cookies

Temperature of cookie dough

When you are ready to make these cookies, be sure to grab them out of the fridge. There is no need to make sure they reach room temperature before you begin baking the cookie dough balls.

More cookie recipe options

You do not need to limit yourself to only the dough bought at the grocery store. You can make your normal cookie recipe that you like to make, just use a cookie scoop to make sure the cookies are cooked evenly.e

Place the scoop of dough in the fridge to allow them to set up or put the dough in the freezer for frozen cookie dough. Then place the homemade cookie dough into the air fryer and cook according to the instructions below.

Step 1: Place cookies

Use air fryer parchment paper to line the bottom of the air fryer to make cleaning up and removing the cookies easier.

Step 2: Bake cookies

After you have the cookies arranged in the air fryer, air fry the cookies at 350 degrees F or 177 degrees C for 6-7 minutes, or until the cookies are done to your liking.

Complete this with the entire batch of cookies you need to make, without overcrowding the air fryer.

Step 3: Rest cookies

When the cookies are done baking leave them in the air fryer to rest for a few minutes past the cook time. Then remove them and place them on a wire rack.

After the cookies are done on the cooling rack, place them in an airtight container for the best storage and to keep the cookies fresh longer.
