Why Cook Refrigerator Cookies In Instant Vortex Air Fryer vs Oven 

Why not is the true question? You can cook bake your cookies right in the air fryer and it won’t heat your whole home! Baked up quick, tender, and moist cookies, and so simple! 

Plus the Instant Vortex Air Fryer uses a fraction of the energy it would take to preheat and cook the cookies in your oven. So to me, it is a no-brainer. 

Can You Put Cookie Dough Into Air Fryer

Yes, you sure can cook cookie dough in the air fryer, place foil on your tray for an air fryer, spritz with cooking spray if you want, and layout your cookie dough. 

Leave space in between each cookie so that as it cooks the cookies will spread out a bit just as they would in the oven. 

Is It Hard Making Cookies In the Instant Vortex Air Fryer

It is actually really easy, what I love is the simplicity. Layout cookie dough, toss in and cook, remove and pair with a tall glass of milk. 

I love having fresh cookies when guests come over. This is a quick way to make cookies for unexpected guests and have your home smell amazing. 

Can I Cook Frozen Cookie Dough in Instant Vortex

If you do frozen cookie dough you will need to add a little extra time to your cook time. It will take a few minutes more to get your cookies fully cooked. 

So just make sure to keep checking to ensure they get cooked through. 

How to Know When Chocolate Chip Cookies Are Done

The cookies will firm up a bit in texture and you will see golden brown color. Then if you take a toothpick and stick it in the center and the toothpick comes out clean they are done. 

Make sure you do your best not to overcook the chocolate chip cookies. If you do you will find it gives them a crunchy and dried-out texture.

Never, ever did I think I could bake refrigerator cookies in my air fryer oven. This was absolutely amazing and I liked them better than oven baked. They weee moister and had that perfect edge crunch. I used the Tollhouse brand. Your recipes are spot-on.

You did not indicated if you used the 16 oz package with 12 or 24 cookies. It looks like maybe the 24 pack, doing 2 batches. I tried the 12 and the cookies were undercooked and mushy.
