This recipe is an exceptional crowd pleaser as well as an awesome everyday dessert for your family. It’s basically just a giant chocolate chip cookie. It’s a huge timesaver when you’re looking for something fast and tasty for dessert. A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top is highly encouraged and it’s also best served warm.
One other tip: if you have a heart-shaped, oven-safe pan, try pressing it in there and serving it for Valentine’s Day.
Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
- 6 Tb unsalted butter, room temp
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugars with a hand mixer. Add egg and vanilla. Toss in the flour, baking soda and salt and combine. Fold in the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
- Press cookie dough into a 10-inch cast iron skillet; smooth top. Bake until cookie is golden brown and set in the center, 18-20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
Note: In the picture above, I decided to press some extra cookie dough into a smaller skillet for the kids, but normally I make one big cookie.
