Parchment Note – To bake the cookies directly in the bottom of the basket or on the air fryer rack you need parchment paper to prevent the dough dripping through. You can use the pre-cut air fryer parchment sheets, or you can cut slits in regular parchment to allow for air circulation. Make sure the parchment isn’t too large that it blocks the air circulation at the edges.

Storage: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days for best freshness.
