TikTok food trends are quickly becoming delicious must dos in the kitchen, from putting Uncrustables in the air fryer to a Cinnamon Toast Crunch dump cake recipe. And the latest trend we’ve spotted that’s about to make our sweet tooth even happier is — drumroll please — baking giant cookie cakes in an air fryer!
The cookie cakes are supereasy to make, with many people opting to use premade cookie dough that can be found at the grocery store (but feel free to use homemade dough if you prefer). All you have to do is press the dough into the basket of their air fryer as one large cookie and pop it in for about about 10 minutes, depending on how thick your dough is. You can also stuff your dough with spreads like Nutella or peanut butter and add toppings, but just make sure to adjust your baking time accordingly. The result is a large cookie cake that’s slightly crunchy and toasted on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside.
While basket air fryers are better for making the cookie cakes, it can also be done in a convection oven air fryer if you have a few extra tools like a silicone mold. Keep reading to see some of our favorite cookie cake creations and learn how you can re-create them in your own kitchen.
