My friend, Christina, posted this recipe for two perfect chocolate chip cookies on her Instagram feed last week. They sounded so good but with heat in the high 80’s and no air conditioning I wasn’t about to turn on the oven to make them. After mourning my cookieless state for a while, I realized I could probably bake these in the air fryer so I tried it and it worked great.
I used a 7 quart Gourmia air fryer for this recipe. The time and temperate in the recipe are based on what it takes to get done in that air fryer. If you have a different size or brand start with the temperature at 350 degrees and check them every 3 minutes until they are done to your liking.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
From Christina Lane’s Dessert For Two Instagram feed
2 TBS butter, melted
3 TBS packed brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1//8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips
In a small bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla, until well combined.
In another small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt, mix well.
Sprinkle the moist ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until all the dry ingredients are combined. Divide mixture into two mounds and press to flatten slightly.
Baking in the air fryer: Put the cookie dough in the air fryer basket. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing the cookies from the air fryer basket.
Cooking in the oven. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Place the cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Press slightly to flatten. Bake 17-18 minutes. Eat.
