Use Your Air Fryer to Make Plain, Cake-Like Chocolate Chip Cookies
By "plain," I mean that these cookies have nothing weird or strange in them--no tahini, no almond butter, no strange flours, no goji berries, no nuts. The cookies are simple, cake-like in texture, and studded with chocolate chips. Freshly baked, the cookies almost melt in your mouth. You'll need just a few minutes to mix the dough up and about 10 minutes to make a few cookies in the air fryer. You can make the amount you need/want and stash the remainder of the dough, wrapped in plastic, in the refrigerator for another day when you "need" cookies. The cookies are great "as is," with a big glass of milk. I also think they are just right to accompany a big bowl of ice cream. Enjoy!
Air Fryer Plain Chocolate Chip Cookies -- Makes 12+
3 tablespoons of butter, melted
1 tablespoon of canola oil
1/4 cup of dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
In a medium bowl or measure (like a quart-sized Pyrex measure), mix together well the butter, oil, sugars, vanilla, egg, and baking soda. Stir in the salt, flour, and chocolate chips until blended. Cut small pieces of baking parchment to fit your air fryer basket. Drop several 1 1/2 tablespoon scoops of cookie dough on each piece of parchment. Flatten the cookie mounds slightly with your fingers. Put one cookie topped piece of parchment in your air fryer basket. Put the basket in the air fryer and air fry the cookies at 320 degrees for about 10 minutes or until a deep, golden brown. Remove the cookies from the air fryer to cool and repeat the cooking process with the remaining cookies.
