Lemon Ice Cream Cups

2. Scoop out the inside and add your favorite sorbet or ice cream, then serve.

Air Fryer Apple Chips 

Non-Stick Spray  


1.  Evenly slice apple into 1/8th inch thick slices. Place in a single layer on a flat surface. Set aside.

2. Sprinkle apple slices with cinnamon. Lightly spray air fryer basket with cooking spray.
3.  Add slices in air fryer basket, trying not to pile them on top of each other too much. Set air fryer to 300°F. Air fry for 15 minutes, tossing apple slices every 5 minutes (and more often towards the end of the cooking time), until golden brown and almost crispy.

4. Serve and enjoy!
