How to Make
Step 1: Start by mixing your all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Make sure it is combined well.
Step 2: In a bowl, you are going to cream together your butter and sugar until it becomes light and fluffy. This takes about 2-3 minutes with a hand mixer or stand mixer.
Then with mixer on medium, add in your egg and vanilla as well.
Step 3: Mix your flour mixture into the wet until well combined. Then gently fold in your chocolate chip morsels.
Step 4: Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees. While your air fryer is heating up work on scooping out your cookie balls. I used a tablespoon cookie scoop then rolled the balls.
Line your air fryer basket or rack with parchment paper and place your cookie dough balls on the paper.
Leave room between each cookie. Bake cookies in the air fryer for 5 minutes or until the cookies are cooked through.
Also, check out my butter pecan cookies, for another great dessert idea.
Storing Leftover Cookies
Airtight container Storage – Place cookies on a wire rack to cool. Once the cookies are fully cooled you can then transfer them to a sealable bag or airtight container. The cookies will store for up to 4 days at room temperature.
Store cookies in the freezer – Or you can place in the freezer and store it for up to three months. Then reheat in the microwave or thaw on the counter.
Variations to Mix In Ingredients
- Mini M&M’s
- Crushed up nuts like pecans or walnuts
- Use peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, etc to swap
- Stir in toffee chips or other fun mix-ins
The air fryer cooks differently than the other. Hot air circulates all around the items that are in there. So look to see a golden brown color on the top of your cookies.
You can also take a toothpick and stick in, and if the toothpick comes out clean the cookies are done.
If you want a gluten free chocolate chip cookie made in the air fryer, simply use a 1 to 1 replacement with a gluten free flour blend. Mix the dough as directed and cook the same.
You can buy parchment paper for the air fryer. The paper has little holes in the paper, so the air can still flow through to cook properly.
Whether you own an air fryer oven or basket style air fryer, this recipe works. You will find they all work great. Just know all air fryers cook slightly differently so adjust the cooking time as needed.
