One of my favorite restaurants has an amazing chocolate chip cookie in a skillet. I think I have only had it once, years ago, but it’s memory sticks with me. This recipe is so yummy my friend. The chocolate is melty and scrumptious. The recipe is simple with minimal mess. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and your entire day will be wonderful…I promise.
The Great Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie from With An Everlasting Love
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chunks (I went ahead and used chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in an 8 inch cast iron skillet set over medium-low heat. Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat. Let rest until pan is warm, but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.
Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork to whisk it well into the mixture. Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and very carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed. Stir in chocolate chunks. Place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
