Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

Who loves you??

Yes…I do.  Why? Because I have a BIG…HUGE…gooey, chocolate chip cookie the size of…a skillet!

Seriously, this doesn’t happen often, people. Rejoice.

Do I need to explain more? Well, I will..because it is just that amazing.

I first saw something this amazing at a local restaurant by me and fell in love. Then I found mini cast-irons at a store called Cost Place (Or maybe its called World Market)? Then I found this amazing recipe on Pinterest and never looked back. It soon became an addiction to make this as soon as possible. Tough life I lead, huh?

The amazing thing about a cast iron, is that the cookie bakes right inside it. SO when it bakes, all the chocolate chippy goodness slowly melts and then you sink your spoon in with bits of chocolate touching the skillet. It’s pretty awesome. The sides puff up and become crispy which is my FAV part and the middle is the gooey, chewy center of the cookie. This has the best of all the cookie worlds.

Of course you can’t stop without slabbing a hunk of ice cold vanilla ice cream on top so the milky sweetness can ooze all over the warm cookie. Have you fallen in love yet?

Note: I made this in 2 small 6in cast iron skillets and I believe the original recipe was done in a large 12 in skillet. This was enough batter for both small skillets and I also reduced the time from the original recipe from 25 minutes to 20 minutes. So if you are using a large skillet, check at 20 minutes and continue longer if needed.

Method:

1) In a large mixing bowl, beat together 1 stick of butter and both sugars until combined and creamy.

3) In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt and slowly add that into the butter mixture. Mix until incorporated but don’t over mix.
