INGREDIENTS FOR EASY PIZOOKIE RECIPE
You’ll need the following ingredients to turn your favourite cookie recipe into pizookie
- Plain Flour or All-Purpose Flour or Maida – This recipe was tested using regular plain flour and tastes delicious.
- Unsalted Butter – This adds moisture to the batter and keeps the cookie from drying out.
- Sugar – Sweetness comes from sugar. I have used two types of sugar – Granulated Sugar and Brown Sugar in this recipe. The combination gives the caramelized flavors and color.
- Salt – A teeny bit of salt offsets the sweetness in the cookie.
- Baking Soda – This works as a leavening agent in the recipe.
- Vanilla Extract – This adds perfect flavors.
- Chocolate Chips – Any type of chocolate cookies will work in this recipe – dark chocolate chips, semi chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips
- Egg – Just one large egg is needed for this recipe.
HOW TO MAKE PIZOOKIE IN THE AIR FRYER
- Ingredients – Gather the ingredients before starting the process.
- Preheat the Air fryer – Grease an 8-inch cake pan with butter on the bottom and all sides. Set aside. Preheat the air fryer at 175 C for 4 minutes.
- Whisk – In a bowl, place the softened butter and sugars. Cream the mixture with an electric hand whisk until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and whisk until well combined.
- Dry Ingredients – Add flour, baking soda, and salt and mix well until a smooth dough is formed.
- Add Chocolate Chips – Stir in chocolate chips until evenly dispersed.
- Transfer to Cake Pan – Transfer the prepared cookie dough to the pan. Press the mixture down evenly in the pan.
- Air fry – Select AIR FRY and program to 175°C for 20 minutes. Touch Start. When the display indicates Add Food, place the cookie dough pan. Test at 15 minutes to see if the Pizookie is done. If it is still a little gooey, then air fry for another 3 minutes. Test again at 18 minutes to see if it is done. If not air fry for another 2 minutes. Once Air frying cycle is done, remove the Pizookie pan from the air fryer basket and allow it cool for 5 minutes.
- Serve – Serve with a dollop of ice cream and syrups of your choice.
- When using the air fryer to make the pizza cookie please ensure that you use the shallow pan or cake pan that comes along with your air fryer itself.
- If you want to get the best texture for the air fryer pizookie, use room temperature butter and not butter that is melted.
- With a preheated air fryer it takes just about 18 – 20 minutes.
Air fryer time and temperatures will vary depending upon the model – so use this recipe as a guide and adjust the cooking time slightly based on your model of the air fryer and your personal preference.
