      These cookies were AMAZING! Chewy and delicious. Only took 6-8 minutes in our ProElite air fryer. Will absolutely make these again.

      I made these cookies and they were delicious. However, I will make a few changes next time. I will make the cookies thinner and set the Air Fryer temperature at 325º. I caution don’t make the cookies too thick or they will not cook all the way through. I followed the recipe exactly. They are delicious.

      I made these this morning, it was my first dessert recipe in my air fryer. Easy to make and delicious. These make a big batch so if you have a small fryer it will take some time to make them all. I shared with a neighbor and we all agree they are delicious! I’ll be making these again!

      I was curious about making desserts in the air-fryer and wasn’t sure how these would come out but I was pleasantly surprised! They had a great flavor and browned nicely. I halved the recipe and made half of the batch in the oven (to save time!).
