  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 350°F. Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, and baking soda.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop dough into balls with a cookie scoop - for a smoother cookie, roll the scoop of dough between your hands.
  • If you’d like to make cookies right away, line the Air Fryer basket with a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  • Place a few balls of dough, spread 1 inch apart into the basket. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until cookies are golden brown on top. (Please note, they will still be soft and chewy on the inside.)
  • Remove basket from fryer and allow cookies to cool for 3-5 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool the rest of the way.
  • Cookie dough can be frozen in ready-to-bake servings as well. Scoop all of your cookie dough onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. No need to space the balls apart, just make sure they’re not touching.
  • Place the sheet pan in the freezer for about 1 hour or until dough balls are hard. Transfer balls to a labeled Ziploc bag. Store immediately in the freezer.
  • Frozen cookie dough balls can be transferred straight from the freezer to the Air Fryer. Bake at 350°F for about 6-7 minutes for frozen dough.
