Yen Can Cook ~ Chocolate Chips Cookies (Almost Famous Amos) – Air Fryer Version
Cookies. Who does not like cookies? Even Sesame Street acknowledged that and thus Cookie Monster was born since 1966. In my own experience when I grew up, I will always be tempted by the aroma of delicious cookies whenever I walked by the Famous Amos kiosk at *ahem* Sungai Wang Plaza.
I said I am tempted but at that time I rarely bought it as it will cost more to purchase a few hundred grams than a box of mixed rice with meat and veggies. But now, I can have those delicious chocolate chips cookies as much as I want because I’ve successfully replicate the cookies and had the heavenly aroma lingers at my home with this simple recipe!
450g all purpose flour
250g unsalted butter, melt
225g brown sugar (I used dark brown sugar)
50g corn flour
400g chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vanilla essence/extract (I omitted)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 teaspoons vegetable oil
Step 1: Put the melted butter, egg, brown sugar and vanilla essence into a bowl and mix until combined using a spatula.
Step 2: Add in all purpose flour, corn flour, baking soda and baking powder, mix the ingredients evenly.
Step 3: Stir in vegetable oil and chocolate chips, mix well to combine all ingredients.
Step 4: Cover the bowl and let it rests in the fridge for at 30 minutes or until it turns a bit harder.
Step 5: Preheat the air fryer to 150°C. Line the basket with baking paper and rolls the dough into small balls and slightly flatten them. Air fry for 20 minutes, flip the cookies halfway through ‘baking”. Transfer the cookies onto wire racks to cool completely. The cookies are a little soft when they are freshly baked and will become crispy when they are completely cooled.
Note: My cookies turned out a bit harder than the Famous Amos version, anyone can enlighten me on how to tweak the recipe? I also found that the sweetness can be reduced a little bit, I’ll try again next time.
