How often do you get a craving for a cookie, but don’t need to cook a whole batch? Daily, you say? I thought so!

This recipe is perfect for that situation. It makes one big cookie and by doing it in the air fryer you don’t have to heat up your whole kitchen, or make an entire batch!

The cookie will have a soft, gooey inside and a slightly crisp outside. These are like a giant bakery-style cookie and you won’t be able to resist it!

How to air fry a cookie:

Cookie dough and chocolate chips in a clear glass bowl
  • Add melted butter, brown sugar, and sugar to a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add an egg yolk and vanilla and stir again.
  • Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl to make a dough.
  • Stir in plenty of chocolate chips.
  • Shape the dough into a large ball and then flatten.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper in the air fryer basket and put the cookie dough in the center of the parchment paper.
  • Cook for five minutes.

Modifications:

If you need a cookie that you can dip into a cup of milk, you can just split the dough ball into two cookies. Cook for 4 minutes if you have two smaller cookies.

Milk chocolate chips are my favorite, but you can use peanut butter, white chocolate, or semi-sweet also!

You can add M&M’s to the cookie, or use them to replace the chocolate chips. Get creative and have fun!

We use and love this six quart OMORC air fryer. It’s dishwasher safe and big enough for my family of four.

I just used regular parchment paper that I cut into a circle, but you could also buy this special parchment paper for the air fryer, if you think you’ll be making a whole lot of cookies. And you will be. πŸ˜‰
