Ingredients For Air Fryer Lemon Drop Cookies: 

  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • two tsp lemon essence
  • One egg
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • One-half teaspoon of baking powder
  • One-half teaspoon of baking soda
  • Three tablespoons of lemon juice
  • One and a half tablespoons of milk
  • Yellow food colouring optional

Instructions For Air Fryer Lemon Drop Cookies: 

  • Cream the sugar and softened butter in a large mixing bowl at a medium speed until thoroughly mixed.
  • Add the eggs and lemon extract. Beat on medium until frothy and combined.
  • Stir in the baking soda, baking powder, and flour. After adding the lemon juice, the baking soda should start to fizzle. Mix on low speed just until the flour is mostly mixed into the mixture. After adjusting the speed to medium, beat the batter until it is smooth and homogenous.
  • If using, add food colouring and milk until the desired colour is achieved. Smoothly beat on medium. Before using, let it cool down. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes if using right away.
  • Lightly mist a bite-sized egg mould with frying oil. Place two teaspoons of dough into each hole after rolling it into a ball. Place the mould inside the air fryer basket, cover it, and cook it for 8 minutes at 375°F. Hit the start button.
  • When finished, place a toothpick in the middle of one cookie. If it’s too wet, give it an extra minute. Using a sling, remove the egg bite mould and allow the biscuits to cool for five minutes before removing


Cookies can easily be removed by loosening 1 side with a butter knife. Then press up on the bottom of the mold and the cookie will pop out.

Store air fryer cookies at room temperature in an air tight container for 4 days. Store in the freezer for 6 months.
