  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Sugar

  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C).

  • Air fry the cookies for 5-6 minutes, or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch. Check at the 4-minute mark to avoid overcooking.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the parchment paper for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat with the remaining cookie dough.
Chefs Tips
