Make Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies in Your Air Fryer in Minutes
These are simple, easy, good chocolate chip cookies--no weird ingredients or hard to find items. It takes minutes to mix up the dough, and I like to do it in a Pyrex quart measure with a wooden spoon for less hassle/less clean up. The cookies are a little crispy on the edges and soft and chewy in the centers. They are sweet but not overly so. You can use whatever type of chocolate chips you have on hand. I like to use a mixture of dark chocolate chips and mini, semi-sweet chips, which means that the cookies will have plenty of deep, dark chocolate flavor as well as a hit of chocolate in every bite. If you'd like, you can air fry a small batch of cookies and stash the rest of the dough, well-wrapped, in the refrigerator to make more cookies another day. Enjoy!
Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Cookies -- Makes 12+
3 tablespoons of canola oil
3 tablespoons of melted butter
1/3 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup of semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
Cut small pieces of baking parchment to fit your air fryer basket. In a medium bowl or measure mix together well the oil, butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder until just mixed in. Stir in the chocolate chips until distributed throughout the dough. Drop 1 1/2 tablespoon portions of dough onto the prepared parchment sheets and flatten the dough mounds a little with your fingers. You need at least an inch between the dough mounds, as the cookies will spread. Put one dough-topped piece of parchment in your air fryer basket, put the basket in the air fryer, and air fry the cookie dough at 350 degrees for 6-7 minutes or until the cookies have puffed up, cracked a bit, and are just golden brown. They may still seem a little soft. That's fine, unless you want hard cookies. Remove the cookies from the air fryer basket to cool and repeat the cooking process with the remaining dough. If you don't want to use all the dough, wrap the remainder well in plastic wrap or a container and refrigerate it for another day (give the refrigerated dough a minute or so longer in the air fryer on the baking day).
