The Essential Ingredients


Before we dive into the step-by-step process, let's ensure we have all the necessary ingredients in precise quantities:

  • ¾ cup of unsalted butter (softened)

  • 1 cup of granulated sugar

  • ⅓ cup of brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon of salt

  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda

  • 2 cups of milk chocolate chips (or your preferred variety)



Crafting the Perfect Cookies


With our ingredients ready, let's delve into the art of creating the ultimate air fryer chocolate chip cookies:


Step 1: Creaming the Butter and Sugars

Begin by combining the softened unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a spacious bowl. Blend these elements together until they form a smooth and creamy mixture.


Step 2: Incorporating the Wet Ingredients

Now, introduce the large eggs and vanilla extract into the creamy butter-sugar blend. Add half of the all-purpose flour, along with the salt and baking soda. Mix thoroughly until the dry ingredients meld seamlessly with the velvety butter mixture.


Step 3: Completing the Dough

Add the remaining half of the all-purpose flour and continue mixing at medium speed until the cookie dough achieves a thick and creamy consistency.


Step 4: Embracing the Chocolate Chips

It's time to infuse your cookie dough with the rich goodness of milk chocolate chips. If desired, you can also include optional nuts for an extra layer of flavor. Ensure that these delectable additions are evenly distributed throughout the dough.


Step 5: Shaping the Cookie Dough

Employ a small cookie scoop or spoon to shape your cookie dough into uniform balls. Place these dough balls onto a piece of parchment paper in your air fryer basket, maintaining approximately one inch of space between each cookie.


Step 6: Air Frying to Perfection

Set your air fryer to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and commence cooking your cookies for 7-8 minutes. As they turn a glorious golden brown, allow them to rest in the air fryer basket for an additional 1 to 2 minutes to ensure they set perfectly.


Step 7: Cooling and Savoring

After their brief rest, remove the cookies from the air fryer and transfer them to a wire rack to continue cooling. Behold – you've achieved the epitome of air fryer chocolate chip cookies!

Our recommended cooking temperature of 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 7 minutes typically yields flawless chocolate chip cookies. Nevertheless, due to variations among air fryers, we advise conducting a trial run with a few cookies on your first attempt.


How should I store leftover cookies?

While these homemade cookies are at their best when freshly baked, any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. Additionally, you can freeze leftover cookie dough in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to three months.
