How’s that for a post title to get your mouth watering?
I made this recipe before we left Tahoe last month, and can’t believe it’s taken me so long to share it! It’s basically a fact that anything baked in a cast-iron skillet is going to be delicious, and this dessert is no exception. It’s so easy to make because you actually mix everything in the skillet, which means no dishes for the win! Plus, is there really anything better than a warm chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven with vanilla ice cream on top?
No. No there is not.
Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate dark chocolate chunks
(I just used regular semi-sweet chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
In an 8-inch cast iron skillet, melt 1 stick of butter over medium heat.
butter is melted, add the granulated sugar and brown sugar, and stir to
combine. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
the egg, and add a small amount (about 1/4 cup or so) of the melted
sugar and butter to the egg mixture (to temper it) and whisk to combine.
Pour egg mixture back into the skillet, and stir until completely combined.
Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Using a wooden spoon, carefully stir to completely incorporate the dry ingredients.
Add vanilla and chocolate, and stir to combine.
Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
And if you’re looking for an excuse to make this completely unnecessary but amazing dessert, Kate Middleton did have a baby yesterday…so there’s that.
I say, celebrate the future king of England and make this cookie.
(I realize that makes no sense, but just go with it mmmkay?)
You’ll be glad you did.
Hope you’re having a great week so far everyone! Xoxo
