ChezCindy: Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie


This is such a fun and delicious recipe!!  So easy for an impromptu weeknight sweet treat.  

Think of traditional chocolate chip cookies, but as a single giant cookie.  I made it using an electric mixer, although it could just as easily be mixed in a bowl with a wooden spoon.  The cookie dough comes together in minutes.  Transfer it to a cast iron or cast enamel pan, no need to coat the pan with oil or baking spray.  It is fully baked in 25 minutes, less time if you prefer a gooey center.  Ready for you to eat straight from the pan!  Top the warm cookie with ice cream for extra indulgence.  

Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/4 cups chopped chocolate* from a bar, or chips from a bag

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, with a wooden spoon or an electric mixer, combine the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar.  Mix until smooth and creamy.  Add in the egg and vanilla, mixing to combine.

Add in the flour, baking soda and salt to the butter mixture, mixing until barely combined.  Add in the chocolate, mixing until just combined.  

Transfer the batter to an 11-inch oven-safe skillet, cast iron or cast enamel recommended.  You may need to use your fingers to spread the batter evenly.  Bake in the hot oven for 22-25 minutes until golden brown.  Remove from the oven and let the cookie rest for about 5 minutes.  Serve warm, or at room temperature if desired.  

*use your favorite chocolate, either milk, semi-sweet, dark, and/or white
