Press each cookie with the back of a small bowl from its center to shape it round and make it little flatter so they are cooked through inside. Attach the air fryer basket to the air fryer and turn it on at 300 degree for 20 minutes. Once done, turn it off and take it out. Let it cool down completely so they become firm and crisp. Enjoy!
