Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

I think I have given up trying to make actual food for this blog. It's not that I don't eat meals. It's just that I just can't seem to photograph them well.

But desserts? They look good in any light. Can we just have dessert all the time?

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

This is recipe two using my cast iron skillet. My first one was a super delicious pesto pizza, and I honestly don't know which recipe I like better.

A couple of weeks ago while I was letting my mouse hover over the add to cart button for this skillet on amazon, I was wondering if it would be worth it. But I think that it may have been worth it for just these two recipes.

Thinking about Valentine's day dessert ideas? Well this is just perfect. Eat up!

What you'l need:

  • 1 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened 
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (more or less depending on how chocolate-y you want it)

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. 
  2. Whisk together the flours, baking soda, and salt.  
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until mixture is light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add in the egg and vanilla.  Mix until fully incorporated. 
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and beat until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Transfer dough to a 12-inch ovenproof cast iron skillet. Press the dough into the skillet until flat.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for around 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Do not over bake.  It will continue to cook a few minutes out of the oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool in pan.

  5. Yes - I think we should definitely have dessert all the time! :) Sneak in some veggies into the desserts and we got the healthy aspect covered -right? ;)

  6. When I first moved out to Los Angeles, I didn't know such a thing existed until someone ordered one of these at a restaurant. Mind. Blown.

    They're great served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream plopped on top. Yes please.

  7. Great cookie. I am really lousy at photos of any kind, so I think this is great! And edible, too!

  8. I made my boys one of these..similar and they loved it..will try yours..If it is any consolation..I find desserts very phtogenic as well as saldas w/out all the dressing mixed in..We lose light very early in dinners are out of the question.You have a lovely blog!

  10. I love how versatile this skillet is! Sweet or savoury, and a pizza cutter in either case :P This looks great Cathleen! x

  12. I love my cast iron skillet but I've never baked a giant cookie in it. Yours looks yummy!

  13. Skillet cookies are THE BEST!! I can't get enough!
