I am a sucker for any food with the word “chocolate” in it. That being said, chocolate chip cookies are a particular weakness of mine. Here is a recipe for a bigger take on your average chocolate chip cookie…made in a skillet!

Ingredients:

  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter, divided and softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar9843402706_b19092a1ca
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • (optional) vanilla ice cream

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then use 2 tablespoons of butter to grease the bottom and sides of a 9 inch cast iron skillet. Add the other 8 tablespoons of butter and sugars to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat them together until it is light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla, then beat well until combined. Next add the baking soda, flour, and salt to a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix on low. Pour in the chocolate chips and mix on low. Press the cookie dough into the skillet and bake for 20 minutes until the edges are crisp and the cookie is golden. Take it from the oven and let it cool, then eat it with some vanilla ice cream!

This is a great sleepover or “girls night” treat. You can literally eat a giant cookie out of a pan! How great is that?!

XOXO, Chels
